Grace Enough for All

Grace Enough for All

Grace Enough for All 1920 1281 Gayl Wright

My fists are tightly closed
facing downwards

I open my hands
a symbol of letting go
saying goodbye to things

that cause me stress
that want me to despair
that show me I am broken

My fists are relaxed now
facing upwards

I open my hands
a symbol of receiving
all God has for me

Peace to flood my spirit
Hope to end despair
Love to make me whole

No more closed fists
holding tightly together

I open my hands
even wider still
Blessings pour down

I can hold no more
Filled to overflowing
Grace enough for all

  • Such a refreshing word spoken here! And the imagery of the closed/open fist picturing our heart’s state is so beautiful too. Thank you for sharing!

    • Thank you, Bettie. Someone suggested that imagery one time and that’s when I wrote the poem. Blessings to you! xo
