January 3, 2022 Scripture Meditations Based on Genesis 6-8 Key Verse - Genesis 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
MY GOD, THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO FIND GRACE IN YOUR EYES To find grace in Your eyes, Lord, is a blessing Despite my carnality of sinfulness’ cursing Praise be to You for salvation-bracing Making me Your child with eternal life possessing. To find grace in Your eyes, Lord, is a privilege Despite my flesh-strivings of pride’s knowledge Praise be to You for righteousness-imputation I acknowledge Making me Your saint with new creation toward heavenly mileage. To find grace in Your eyes, Lord, is a time of gladness Despite my selfishness hiding in hypocrisy’s brightness Praise be to You for Your mercy and forgiveness Making me Your convert toward transformation along holiness. To find grace in Your eyes, Lord, is a sure victory Despite my vain cravings and worldly thoughts’ flurry Praise be to You for Your sanctification-glory Making me Your follower who walks with You, proclaiming Your story. To find grace in Your eyes, Lord, is a proof of Your approval Despite my failures attributed to enemies hindering my survival Praise be to You for Your power causing my prayer-filled revival Making me Your will-abider shut in Your prevailing love-festival. To find grace in Your eyes, Lord, is a service-motivation Despite my unfaithfulness brought by fleshly corruption Praise be to You for Your steadfast compassion Making me Your steward who complies to Your instruction. To find grace in Your eyes, Lord, is a desire of my heart Despite my zeal assuaged, abated and restrained by iniquity’s dart Praise be to You for wisdom propelling my being from the start Making me Your worshiper offering sacrifice with sweet savoured part.

Lovely poem of acknowledgement of sinful nature and salvation by grace of God, Beata. As a child I listened to a gaspel singer named Tennessee Ernie Ford constantly. One of my records (played on a record player) was, "Noah Found Grace In The Eyes Of The Lord". If it wasn't for God's grace, I'd have no hope for an eternity with Him. Bless you for sharing hope through your poetry, Beata. Happy New Year! Bill
