Frustrating the Grace

Frustrating the Grace

It’s not about you baby
I know you mean well
I know you just want to help
But you are just all up in the way
Frustrating the grace

You wanna be part of the solution
You wanna lend yourself
But it’s not about you baby
You’re frustrating the grace

What you want isn’t bad
It’s actually quite good
But what you can’t see or know
Is how all the pieces go
And how when the timing is just right
They’ll all line up tight
And lock into perfect place
Please stop frustrating the grace

You’re okay and covered by Me
I see you daily bending your knees
Crying and asking and seeking of Me
Stand up, believe, freely receive
And just stop frustrating the grace

You ain’t gonna stop it
You’ll never unplug it
You’ll be even more amazed
When you stop frustrating the grace

Inspiration from my Savior, Jesus, and “frustrating the grace” I first heard this term from my sister in Christ that the Lord blessed me with – Lisa Guss


This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
