Mercy Each Morning

Lamentations 3:22-23
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

I am so glad we live in the grace and blessing that each new day is full of new mercy, and we can rise each morning knowing this, and this assures us of God's love for us and the security we have in our walk with Him. 

I walk in mercy I never deserved and grace 
that is rich and free because I am a child of God.

Is still a wonder to me
Each brand new day
A new beginning
A time to start over
Try again, do it better

Morning is when
Hope is..
Fresh, strong – renewed!

Morning and mercy go hand and hand with the Lord. Each new day, we wake up to a new morning, and we wake up to new mercy, a clean slate and a fresh start. God's lovingkindness offers us this every day. As morning rises each new day, so do God's tender mercies.

Psalm 145:8-9
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,
Slow to anger and great in mercy.
The Lord is good to all,
And His tender mercies are over all His works.

This gift of mercy He offers to us is filled with kindness and compassion in all the love God has for us - maybe we can pass some on to others. Is there anyone you know who needs to be on the receiving end of mercy? Maybe God is calling us to offer a fresh start, a clean slate to someone who needs us to extend to them - this bountiful mercy God has shown to us.

To walk in this mercy is walking in the goodness of the Lord.

Psalm 23:6 
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
