Graced up for Rest, Rested in Grace

                                                        by Dr. Kelechi Duru and myself

Grace, power and promotion it brings,
Rest, peace and quietness it sings,
Grace, Divine influence upon a heart,
Rest, God's Shalom upon your path,
Graced up for rest, rested in Grace!

In Isaiah, He says, "Not bronze but gold"
But this covenant is of old,
Now He says, "Have my grace,
In exchange for your disgrace,"
Graced up for rest, rested in Grace!

"They shall never enter My rest, no never!"
This He spoke of the disbelievers,
The Hebrews, the Jews in the wilderness,
The promise of His rest still stands nevertheless
Graced up for rest, rested in Grace!

Today, believe, stand before the Throne,
Make His presence your home,
For therein abides His abundance,
His Grace, His rest forever your stance
Graced up for rest, rested in Grace!

We wrote this poem years ago (somewhere in Mellamby Hall) while we were undergrads and members of a great community- Pen of A Ready Writer, Vessels of Honour Foundation (VHF) University of Ibadan.

I sincerely hope you were blessed reading it and that you enjoyed it.

Keep resting in His all-sufficient Grace,


P.S. Actually, Dr. Duru did most of the thinking. I basically just committed his thoughts to paper :)
