Divine Graciousness

is what I desire


A gracious attitude

of the heart



in the most difficult

of circumstances



with the most difficult

of people



so that the world knows

it’s not me




for You are gracious

humble of heart

slow to anger

abounding in love


Gracious to those

who don’t deserve it


Grace personified to me

showing through to them

– Isaiah 30:18 (NIV)


But the Eternal One was gracious and compassionate toward them. He was good and turned His face to them because of the covenant He had made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Eternal, true to His promise, had protected them and remained near them until now.

– 2 Kings 13:23 (VOICE)


And you know, when you’ve experienced grace and you feel like you’ve been forgiven, you’re a lot more forgiving of other people. You’re a lot more gracious to others.

Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.

– Joel 2:13 (NLT)
