* Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of the next month and a half, I'm making a few minor changes to my schedule of posting. All posts will continue to be made daily and will consist of material that has not appeared before on this blog. However, because my time will be taken up by my final thesis defense for my Master of Church History degree and by a trip to the Holy Land, several of my ongoing series will be on hold until May.

- On Wednesdays, I'll be posting some of my original poems from my college years, and then in May my "Evangeliad" poems will resume.

- On Thursdays, my series on "How to Be Miserable in Your Christian Life" will wrap up by the end of March. That will conclude that series for now; however, if you enjoyed it, please let me know, because I may add more to it at some later point.

- And on Fridays, my "Glimpses of Grace" series will be on hiatus until May. In the meantime, it will be replaced with a serialized, unpublished novella that I wrote back in 2005, "Worth It All." Beginning in the first week of May, "Glimpses of Grace" will return, this time in the Thursday slot, and a newly-composed adventure novel will be posted on Fridays.

Grace Be in Me

Spirit of Truth,

Be the breath that fills me now…

Apart from you I am empty and alone;

Enfolded by you I share in love’s full vigor,

The present embrace of a timeless God.

This pilgrimage is a lonely one at times—

Lonely yet endowed with joy,

And full of the holy silence

That whispers to me always…

That I am not alone.

But I am a poor pilgrim;

Oh, make me a better one.

Grace be in me and upon me,

Life’s breath, and hope of my hope;

Grace be in me and upon me,

Until I know of naught but you;

Grace be in me and upon me,

And make me one with you.
