Out of Grace

Why are you ignoring the symptoms?
It is important to point out the cracks
in a bridge or the chip in the cup that
tears your lip everytime you drink from it.
Nothing is pure but God and even He keeps
a discerning distance. Those among us
who are gentle and wise but bury grief
in the rich soil of the heart, we will
never find mercy. We were designed to be
imperfect, laboring towards redemption.
