The Gift of Mercy~

Nothing can make injustice just but mercy. ~ Robert Frost

Why do you love God?

Have you ever just stopped and thought about that?

For me, I think it was God's mercy that first drew me to Him.

Mercy....so much wrapped up in such a small word. Here are some synonyms for mercy:

blessing

charity

favor

forbearance

forgiveness

generosity

gentleness

grace

kindliness

lifesaver

softheartedness

tenderness

tolerance


Is this not the description of Jesus?!

He IS mercy!

Mercy is so like God and so unlike me....and there in is where my attraction to God begins. I know how wretched I am. I know how Holy and beautiful He is. Yet, He loves me.

He blesses me.

He shows me His favor.

He forgives me.

He is more than generous with me.

He is so gentle with me.

He extends me His grace unmeasured.

He is kind.

He is my lifesaver.

He is so softhearted and tender with me.
He tolerates me!

......and because He is all of this and so much more....I am drawn to Him.

I am drawn to His pure, unconditional love for me.

I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Presence.~ Christopher Columbus

Thank you, God, for the gift of your mercy~

We love Him, because He first loved us. ~ 1 John 4:19
