In The Arms of Grace
in the day that tomorrow brings,
I see you smiling.
Your eyes are sparkling with the dances
that light in a new horizon.
You are gathering,
swelling, like waters that fill into rivers
that pour Love into view,
You are new.
in the day that tomorrow brings
I see you healed,
your sweetened heart revealed.
In an eternal embrace,
you are in the arms of grace.
There you are
in the dawn
that rises up to meet you,
wrapped by tender mercies
and a blanket of prayers.
Entwined, encouraged, and seen.
You are with each good thing.
You are inside of hope’s dream.
There. I see you.
There you are,
not a far smile away,
waking in the Promise of a bold new Day.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 —He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
Isaiah 43:18-19 —“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
