Beneath the Shelter of God's Eyes

 PAD Challenge day 9: Write a shelter poem

The sun climbs from its resting place
To kiss life’s road where we
Reach for another day of grace
To be what we must be

Flesh and blood cannot inherit
That for which we strive
Grace of God our only merit
In each day we live

Man cannot live by bread alone
Though he may think it true
And our best cannot atone
For sin’s inherent due

Touch this ephemeral dust
With glad humility
As we trust Him God gives to us
The law of liberty

Beneath the shelter of His eyes
Time falls from love’s embrace
Painting across the morning skies
Another day of grace
