GRACE IS SUFFICENT

What God has promised,  “I will never leave

You!  I will never forsake!”

“I am with you always.”  Keeps His Word!

He will never a promise break!

.

.

I complained once (?) “Lord, I am so weak!”

He said, “How old are you?

You know, I am way past 4-score and ten…

Last year I was 92!

.

.

I believe He likes my poetry.

Keep writing, like, four each week!

Make around eighty copies of each.

Distribution, that is how I preach!

.

.

So, you know, I know He cares for me!

“His rod and staff…” my consolation!

He has proved that, you know since Adam and Eve

In Him can be no frustration!

.

.

I preached small churches, some 30 years,

Like, nine or ten, many states.

Traveled a bunch, like, a 3-year man!

Plenty of grub on my plate!

.

.

Hey, no complaints from my lovely wife,

Stayed with, like, I am big 93!

So 60 some years, she never once complained!

Plus, played piano for me!

.

.

Many the church she was the main one,

Singing hymns as she played!

Piano just seemed, like, so natural!

Never ever looked frayed!

.

.

Or dismayed!  Once, when daughter joined us

At piano, she just a tot,

My frustration showed but the wife put

Her on bench nor missed a note!

.

.

Sure, much older now!  Sit and write!

As God  “Zings” the words to me,

Make mucho copies, deliver at church,

Of course, it’s all for free!

.

.

Sold many poems, earlier times

But now 4 each Lords’ day!

Sit, pass them out, as long as they last,

Of course, without pay!

.

.

Well, I have to preach!  That is my calling

Just obeying the call.

This has no message as others do

Explanatory is all!

.

.

I know I could sell many I write

But as salvation is free!

Why should I charge for what God gives?

Grace plenty good for me!
