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)
