No More Words Necessary

Come Lord Jesus.

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
The last words
By John
An Apostle
In exile
On an island
Filled with criminal minds

Who would listen
To one
Who sees visions
And hears voices
On an island
Filled with criminal minds

Only those
Who know the grace
Of the Lord Jesus
Who paid the price
And transformed a criminal mind

A perfect ending is
One that ends in grace

dversepoetspub prompt is take the closest book within your reach and look at the last two lines and write a poem. Literally, the Bible is next to me now, so it wins!

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    Amen to this! And perfect beginnings start there, too.

    Grace is a beautiful ending….and beginning. I grew up with the influence of the Lutheran church and this is ingrained….”Come Lord Jesus, be our guest, let this gift to us be blessed.”
