His Mercy is So Sweet

A few mornings ago while I laid in bed (because I didn’t want to get out of bed and have my children wake up and follow me downstairs!) I was praying and the word “mercy” kept coming to my mind as I prayed for the people that God laid on my heart.

I praise God for His mercy toward me and I pray that I would continue to practice seeing others with the eyes of mercy. Mercy is so sweet and so characteristic of God. I just did a search on Biblegateway.com for mercy and as I scan the verses that come up I am filled with joy and strength for the day ahead of me because I anticipate that my day (as all my days in this season of mothering young children) will be filled with hourly testing of my patience as I do the work set before me — the work of ministering to my children the unconditional love of God.

I pray this verse for you and for me this day! Psalm 23: 6 “Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.” (Amplified Bible)

About thecrunchymamachronicles

I'm a woman obsessed with the amazing, everlasting, lavish, never-failing LOVE of the Heavenly Father through Jesus. It's my favorite thing to meditate on and to write about. His expression of love has radically transformed me from a joyless, miserable person to the me who is full of joy and love for others because of my radical identity as the beloved of God. I am devoted to my husband and to gently parenting our three boys with Jesus as my model of the ultimate gentle parent.

  1. So much I still don’t understand in life and yet…I accept. Sometimes I meet whatever it is with a smile, perhaps even a shrug, and at other times…with tears. I may not always like what is served to me, but how I come to terms with it… says everything. By His grace do I realize the love that is within my heart, and for this seemingly small and yet greatest of gifts…do I give thanks. * big smiles*

    • Thanks for sharing your heart, Sharon. May this encourage you and give you hope and joy, even as none of us understand completely during our earthly journey: 1 Cor. 13:12 “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.[a] All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”
