Delight, Grace, Balance – A Poem

In my office I have a deck of angel cards with various words on them. I always keep three face-up next to my computer monitor, for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I’ve had the same three cards next to my desk for a while, so yesterday I decided to draw three new ones. I returned the three cards to the deck, shuffled the deck, and pulled three new cards.

Only they weren’t new. They were the same three cards I had just returned to the deck: Delight, Grace, and Balance. It kind of reminded me of a time in the Bible when the apostles cast lots to determine God’s will. See
Acts 1:12-26.

I decided perhaps there was a poem to be written with these three words, being thankful for such inspiration.

Delight, Grace, Balance

I Delight in the majesty of the Father
though I cannot fully comprehend

I accept abundant Grace from the Son
that I believe does not have an end

I find Balance through the Holy Spirit
on whose wisdom I will depend

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. What a great background story to a great poem! Love how you find inspiration! God bless you as He delights in you today!

    • Deb, I couldn’t hardly believe I pulled the same three words after shuffling the deck! I figured God had something He wanted me to see in those words that I hadn’t seen before. 🙂 It’s a simple poem, but those are the best kind! Peace, Linda
