God’s Grace, Amazing
by Victoria Dillen
The snow drifted in smothering the sleeping town
Swirling, drifting, enveloping
Temperatures plummeting announce a bitter cold blizzard
The stranger struggled on in his thin torn trench coat
Stumbling, struggling, shivering
Snow caked hair, eyelashes and clothes, his sockless feet freezing
The wind shrieked on, snapping freshly snow-laden trees
Assaulting, shrieking, battering
Sheets of ice polished streets, blocked, treacherous, a hazard
The stranger staggered, his burning fingers turned white
Sobbing, staggering, regretting
Driven, forced on, stinging arctic air causing harsh wheezing
The storm raged, the night sky menacing, sinister
Tormenting, raging, persisting
Houses lay buried, hidden, masked, appearing haphazard
The stranger paused, burying his head in dead hands
Despairing, pausing, praying
His wife, small child, helpless, alone in the ditch, agonizing
The spreading warmth now reviving his heart and limbs
Refreshing, warming, sustaining
Looking up he sees light, a home, renewed, hope recognized
The door urged open, his cry heard, wrapped in warm blankets, dry clothes
Hurrying, urging, pleading
Neighbors run, saving his wife, his child... His Grace, Amazing
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Psalm 3:4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
Psalm 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
Psalms 34:17-19 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. 19. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
Luke 10:29-37 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto
Jesus, And who is my neighbour? …36. Which now of these three,
thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the
thieves? 37. And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said
Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
