Grace… A Friend of Mercy

Grace… that word we don’t deserve,
no matter what we think we’ve earned.
God’s word says it rains on the just and the unjust.
It seems a requirement for living… a must.
Yet when we experience the receiving,
it is easier to suddenly start believing.
It becomes such a blessing to us all.
Then we’re willing to stumble and fall.
What a privilege to witness giving.
It is more than an act of forgiving.
Many times it is the beginning of hope
to throw a drowning sinner the life saving rope.
When God allows us to be HIS audience,
it magnifies the whole experience.
For when we watch the living God pardon
Adam and Eve in the midst of the garden,
it takes us back to when we first
tasted God loving us at our worst.
Praise God for being Mercy’s friend.
They have the power to birth and mend.
