What is Five Minute Friday all about? Every Friday writers all over the blog-o-sphere write for 5 minutes flat.
That’s it. No over thinking our words, excessive editing, or spending time on photo editing. We do what we love to do, write. Head on over to Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog to get the scoop, link up, and read all of the other great Five Minute Friday posts.
This week’s prompt is Mercy
God’s grace and mercy are free gifts given to me and to you. We are totally undeserving of these gifts, yet He lavishes us with His love. He paid the ultimate price for us.
His mercy changed everything; my life, my heart, my destiny.
The Bible says that His mercy’s are new every morning. Oh and how I need that! I have so many days w
here my heart is ugly and full of sin, but. HE. STILL. LOVES. ME. and you too.
Despite all the ugliness and sin that creeps into those hidden crevices of my heart, despite all those negative and evil thoughts that fill my mind, God covers me with His mercy, His love, and His grace.
What a sweet gift it is to know that every single day we get a fresh start with God. We get another day to recognize al
l of His attributes and characteristics. We get another day to sing His praises. I don’t want to waste those days, but all to often I do.
I get caught up in my own selfish desires. I get busy with life. I hide behind the demands of marriage and motherhood. I don’t look up towards Heaven.
But I’m reminded of Lamentations 3:22-23,
“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Never ceases / never comes to an end / great is His faithfulness…Mercy
But what does the Lord require of Me?
To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with my God. Micah 6:8
