The Grace of Jesus – A Triolet

I missed posting something last week for Thankful Thursday, and couldn’t bear the thought of missing it again and letting those who read my blog think I’d lost my thankfulness. I most certainly have not! Our God has blessed me with so much to be thankful for; and I know that when I focus on my blessings and His grace my outlook on each new day is so much better.

In addition to the grace of Jesus, which I have written a poem about for today, I am also thankful for the triolet form of poetry. Because of the repetition, you get 8 lines for the price of writing 5. It’s a wonderful gift for the writer struggling with writer’s block.

Update: It just now dawned on me that it is not Thursday and that I posted this a day early. Then I realized I was still in time for Open Link Night at dVerse Poets Pub. That is truly the kind of week I’m having, but I’m thankful nonetheless.

The Grace of Jesus

The grace of Jesus my Savior
Flows from His blood on the cross
Bringing me peace and redemption
The grace of my Jesus, my Lord

The source of the world’s salvation
The answer to each petition
The grace of Jesus my Savior
Flows from His blood on the cross
