Grace Unmasked

Every morning when I wake up I apply two masks —

One to cover the scars on my face

And another to cover the scars on my heart

No one else can see the uncomely flaws

The reality of them I do not have to embrace

These scars are a piece of me which I wish was no part

But at the end of the day, these monstrosities come to light

For I no longer can afford to hide

The scars that are suffocating to break free

And continue to ignore them I might

But these foolish thoughts I must chide

For that is not how my Savior ought it to be

So every morning I shall adorn myself in grace

I shall open my eyes to those around

And see that my hardships are really quite small

Then when I reach the day’s end… I shall still find myself immersed in grace
