Biblical Poetry
Early in 2017, I felt prompted by the Lord to start writing Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This is something I've never attempted before, but felt very drawn to it by the Lord. In obedience to Him, I have sensed a whole new realm of God's grace as I have begun to write in this way. I hope you enjoy them.

  Grace that Leads

By Ken L Birks

Once lost and bound in chains of oppression, we taste of His grace so freely.

Free from depression and anxiety, spirits set free, sense the warmth within

Washed and made clean by His precious blood, no guilt or shame to keep us down

As His grace takes root, our spirits are now free to soar to heights unknown

 

When trouble comes knocking, grace now leads to paths undisclosed

Free from uncertainty and doubt in the midst of turbulence, peace rules

By the hand, He takes us and says, “This is the way, walk in it with eyes closed.”

Hearts now filled with peace count it all joy as He leads so freely from within

 

When sin comes knocking, grace within teaches to deny all ungodliness

No longer bound by disobedience, our spirits yield to the power of His grace

He gives way to escape with eyes now open to the path so bright

With His grace so freely given we flee from the old to soar in new flight

 

No longer bound by carnal limitations, we yield to divine ability from above

From within, Grace is multiplied as we set our hearts on the task ahead

We realize in all that we are called to, there is nothing we can't do or dread

With Christ, we can do all things. Nothing is too difficult as grace leads us on.

 

We give thanks to the One who gives His grace so freely

Our hearts are overwhelmed by the grace that covers

He has made us all to be more than conquerors as we soar so effortlessly

He leads us triumphantly in all of our endeavors

Oh that we would give thanksgiving continually to Him who loves us so completely.

 


This poem describes how God's grace covers us in every aspect of our walk with Him.
