Grace Settles Softly

Grace settles softly,
A cheerful chirp like delight
mixed with my cynical disbelief.
I deserved so much worse;
I was waiting for so much more.

Grace breathes Her life into crushed hopes,
a gentle whisper
at
a
time;

A friendly whiff of encouragement
once, twice, until…
Grace begins to live a life of Her own;
Outside of me,
Yet from me
And I lay myself down
again
to be this
channel of Grace,
This echo of Hope,
one decisive moment
at
a
time.
