Amazing Grace

I have been set free the moment

HE saw me, HE heard me, HE accepted me~

the moment

HE saved me from myself

when HE came to me,

lifting me out of the pit of shame & from the pit of not good enough.

I still can feel my being lifted out of the quicksand that was sucking me down,

further away from who I was born to be,

into deeper into who I thought I should be~

a better version of Joni,

a more lovable version of Joni,

because I believed that I was just not good enough.

But then GOD told me~

‘I love you, so ‘Come to ME’ as you are, so I can transform you into who you were

born to be~perfectly loved by ME. Walk with ME and I will show you how to live as

one beloved by ME, as I ‘rejoice over you with singing and dancing’ (Zephaniah 3:17).

For I have created you. You are MY workmanship.

Now will you receive all who you were

born to be~ All MINE?”

So I reached up and took the hand of the One whose hand was reaching down to me in the pit.

I didn't have to clean up my act,

because HE found me just as I was,

so HE could

Wipe off the dirt, Wipe off the hurt, Wipe off the lies & the pain~

with HIS blood,

that set me free ~

the day I looked up~


HE was looking at me as HE was seeking me while I was lost and searching.

I was found by the One who seeks the lost.

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.

My chains are gone.

The chains, the imposters,

that I ran to day in and day out,

every time I

listened to the lies that I was not good enough,

through their eyes and in my own eyes.

Meanwhile, I was always enough in HIS eyes.

You & I are more than enough,

because HE is more enough as

HE Sees us. HE Hears us. HE Accepts us.

And all HE asks is for us to make the

who came from RICHES to be swaddled in RAGS

so that HE could take our RAGS and robe us in HIS RICHES.

But it doesn't stop there, as it is just the beginning

as HE continues to take what we give HIM to give us more of HIM .

Oh the RAGS of Fear, Doubt, Rejection, Bitterness, Lies...

But oh the RICHES of Faith, Trust, Acceptance, Forgiveness, Truth....
