Underserved Mercy

I awake to see the grey sky, the dark clouds covering, and the reminder of yesterday.

All I can do is ask, “Why?”

The emptiness inside that comes with defeat, the feeling of failure, and fear.

All I can do is ask, “Why?”

As tears roll down my face, and my heart yearns for change, the reminder is still there.

All I can do is say, “I need you right now…”

……..

I pause….

and I wait…

for you.

………….

It’s in the quiet…that I hear you, O Lord my God.

Inside I hear a soft whisper say,

My mercies are new every day.

………

Quiet.

Peace.

I see the grey sky, the dark clouds moving by, and yesterday is gone.

All I can do is say, “Thank You.”

I don’t feel empty inside, I don’t feel like a failure, I feel Love not fear.

All I can do is say, “Thank you.”

Tears of joy roll down my face, my heart is lifted, yesterday is gone.

All I can do is say, “Thank you.”

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!” The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.”

If you are struggling with anything, reach out to a trusted friend, leader, councillor or Pastor. This post is for those that battle. There is Hope. I’ve found that Hope and Strength in Jesus Christ…and you can too.

We were never meant to go through this life alone.

Christian
