It is true, these charges against you.
Every bit of it is true.
You took advantage of
New mercies each morning
And of grace is sufficient.
You took advantage!
And said “God will understand”
“God is merciful.”
Yet you read every book except the bible.
You lingered on your phone searching for love
When love has been here for you all the time.
The community gave you garments of praise
To shake your heaviness and ease your pain
But you chose to wear anger and malice instead.
The word was introduced to you.
You knew the word
But you did not trust it.
You went from one vice to another;
Seeking healing in every intoxicating substances
Seeking comfort in every lustful thoughts
Seeking confidence in every comparison.
You could not sit alone to reason with God,
You called that “loneliness.”
You stole from your tithes,
Brought strife between brothers,
Sowed gossips among sisters.
You nonchalantly ignored my voice
And called it “intuition”.
You took for granted that you have
Two legs to walk into the house of worship,
So you laid in bed all day Sunday and called it “rest.”
These and many more are your crimes.
Many have sinned
And fall short of the glory of God,
But grace is still sufficient.
Yes, grace does not run out.
