There are days when life makes me tired. I wake up in the morning feeling not at all refreshed and still annoyed about whatever managed to creep in under my skin the day before.
My soul cries out, “Jesus, please don’t let me waste Your mercy…”
I slowly pick my never-fully-rested self out of bed and go through the same routine as every morning. My eyes don’t begin to open until I can smell the coffee brewing.
I whisper, “Jesus, please don’t let me waste Your mercy…”
I make sure everything is in place for the kids, I sit in my comfy chair with my Bible, pen, and journal, and then I open the text that is sacred to my soul.
I desperately speak, “Jesus, please don’t let me waste Your mercy…”
He is so merciful to me. He tolerates my bad attitudes, slips of the tongue, and sometimes discontented, angry soul. I have so much further to go on this journey. There is so much more to learn and give. Yet, through it all, it is His mercy that will propel me. It is His gift of grace that will keep me going forward. It’s His joy that will seep into my soul and cause the flood waters to bring peace even in the midst of the storm.
Maybe you are having a tired day, too. If you are, you are not alone. His mercy can water the dry soul and bring life where there was once nothing but sorrow. Allow Him to love you with His mercy and wrap you in His grace…
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. (N.K.J.V.)
God bless you,
