By The Grace Of GOD

I thank you Lord for being in your hands, I thank you Lord for being part of your plan. I am on my on but I am not alone because it's by your Grace that I can keep my pace. I  know you love me Lord even when things are hard, I know you are by my side and you will always be my guide.  When I don't know what to do I know I can always trust in you because it's by your Grace that my life's no longer a waste. Even when I was strung out on alcohol and drugs, you  still showed me love and when I felt like the whole world had put me down you brought me back around, you took away my fears and wiped away my tears. Now I have the strength to go on and finish the race for you have taken my case, I feel Your wonderful embrace and it's by your Heavenly Grace. Father, I pray that one day I  see you face to face, though my Lord Jesus Christ and by your Heavenly Grace.

Milton I have great respect for faith. I know the faith it takes to place an epistle such as yours on poetry sites. Of that, it is easier to speak to the verse, than the message. I believe your verse does a good job at recommendation based on your experience and faith. Not being a novice to the message, the message itself, in the format submitted, is not lost in a clutter of words. Personally Id have shortened each line to bullet each faith effect. I know it would have been longer, but bullets work very well in making ones point. Once again, thank you for sharing, particularly a message that has brought so much solace to your experience in life.

Sounds like you took a few turns through the wringer. I know what that's all about myself. Congratulations on finding God and turning your life around. It's no easy task. This is a nice tribute to God and feels genuine. There are a couple of spelling errors (second line should be on my "own", and last line "through" instead of though), but nothing major. What I feel is missing from this to make it a smoother, more rhythmic read is structure. I would suggest separating lines and using different forms of punctuation to divide this poem into easier-to-read stanzas. Of course the real value in this piece lies in the salvation of your soul--something which doesn't have to rely on rhythm and meter. Congrats again!

I am very cautious of critiquing religious offerings because I have posted so many myself and I know how personal and evangelical they may appear to the reader and the writer. Nonetheless, your write was very direct, well written, passionate, and to me (though it may not matter), sincerely holy. Thanks for putting this read out there, not everyone has the courage today whilst in years past it would have been expected. With the blood of the Lamb, Mark

Very nicely faith based poem - "there by the Grace go I" - Your rhyme scheme is very good - my only suggestion to you is to work on structure - which I learned here by very patient poets who helped me along my 10 plus years here - I would also put quotation marks with certain words i.e. - "Lord", "Father", "Jesus", "Christ", "Heavenly" for the respect you have found during your times of trials and tribulations. You have good writing skills - now to hone them and make them sharper and more concise - The Title is good but I was taught not to title my poems with words found within the body of the poem. You could change this - easily - as well as working on structure - instead of writing in paragraph form - write it in lines descending down in even form and break when you want to space and allow the piece to flow. These are only my personal suggestions - to you as the author of this poem. I believe you possess a very thankful heart for what "God" has done in your life. Blessings, Deni

Hello again, Milton: I love the title to this piece. It surely brings you right into the poem. Your lines length is so much more conducive to a well written poem. Your subject matter is clear and to the point, very gracious and reverent. My favorite line: "I thank you Lord for being in your hands." Another: "When I don't know what to do/I know I can always trust in you." A really special note to God. Very well written. Thank you!
