When Grace Does Not Abound

shattered-heart

The Church is tearing my heart apart

Loud voices, court cases

War cry of religious liberty instead of freedom in Christ

I weep

Tears offered for strangers, wounded by brothers

Imposing boundaries crafted by bigotry

Hate is not our way

The Way is Love personified

Arms stretched out and spirit offered to cover you

From pain

From sin

From being sinned against

I’m sorry

I apologize for grace failing us and you and causing scars you can never fully show because they are soul wounds

I pray we get to the place where we remember the love we are called to

So that our offerings to you are full of the compassion and understanding you deserve
