Heiress of His Promise, Personal

Saved by Grace

I don’t remember when the word grace started resonating with me, but it has and in fact, it is from which the name of this blog was derived! In part, it’s a special word to me because the biblical definition of my name Hanna means just that, grace. However, it also encapsulates the unfolding of our relationship with God. In Ephesians 2:8-10, it reads

Who is your Leader?

I thought about my decisions in the far and recent past and the factors that made me decide to push through or not. This includes both the big and small decisions that have defined my life as it is now. And I realised there were a lot of times I was pressured, instructed, or influenced by leaders around me.

Creative Writing, Heiress of His Promise, Tumblr Throwback

On a Hill, on the Cross

The world and its promises are fake

It tries to captivate me with itss lies

Once, I was easily tantalized in failures

I was so easily swayed to its beat

But now, I’m fully aware of the truth

My eyes have been opened, my heart renewed

Thoughts and mindsets: broken and being replaced

Now I’m a stronger fighter

Being built to not back down

I am restructured to soar into victory

He has given me a new chance to succeed

And I will not let this opportunity pass

I want to make the most of this great destiny

My inheritance is heaven!

I can’t live a life that’s less than worthy

It’s time to let go of the old self I posed

The butterfly within me longs to be free

And it deserves to be free

It’s freedom has already been paid 2,000 years ago

By a great Man, on a hill, on the Cross
