Invite Me to Grace

Tell me the story – your real life account
Your words dripping with the fragrance
of an agonizing truth
Invite me to the grace of loving well
Can I sit with you across the table
And listen without failing your heart?

priority connection marvia davidson

I will tell the judging urge to abate
I will steel my heart for the frame of acceptance
I will make this space safe
Our connection is my priority

Tell me the story of your blossoming soul
Your thoughts spilling like water on dry, cracked ground
Invite me to the grace of embracing wholly
Can I look you in the eye unflinchingly
and hear you without excluding holy whispers?

loved here marvia davidson

I will tell the condemning to be silent
I will hold your hands with the hope of restoration
We will make this place safe
Affinity with you is my priority

We are His Story unfolding
In broken places and
Along arrow pathways
Where hearts hemorrhage
With the ache to be made well

We are balm invited to the deep
To the heavy, to the sacred and
Not-so-sacred ruined ones

love grace

Invite me to the cross where
Conviction is nailed
Overturned
Split open
With Love gaping wide

Yes, tell me the story
Invite me to the grace of loving well
