Trust In Mercy

“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God;
I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.

I will praise You forever,
Because You have done it;

And in the presence of Your saints,
I will wait on Your name, for it is good.”  Psalms 52:8-9

The Lord delights in mercy.

Lord, may we delight in being merciful too.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Mercy Exchange                                                  images

We can trust in Your mercy
no matter how we feel

for it is ever endless
and our hope You will not steal

creating time after time
opportunities to chose You

all the while learning
to be merciful too.
