Mercy

“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV)

Mercy

When you are overwhelmed –
consumed by  temptation

loss,
fear,
faithlessness,
illness,
anger,
disillusionment,
disbelief,
depression –

the surprising, sometimes self-inflicted,
often unknowable events that cause you to ask,
“Why me? What did I do to deserve this?”

Pull the plug on that pool of negativity.
Drown the fire that would consume you
were it not for God’s incredible love,
evident in the empty cross,
the risen Christ.

His mercy is unfailing,
his presence absolute.
