Grace and Mercy

Proverbs 11:16-17  “A gracious woman attains honor, . . .The merciful man does himself good, . . .”

Rather than card making exploits, today I just wanted to offer a bit of encouragement.

I’m certainly not very merciful as most of the time I just don’t get how people can make such stupid decisions and not expect repercussions.  When I make stupid decisions, I may not like the consequences, but I do figure I deserve them.  Being gracious is not a strong suit for me as you can tell from my explanation of mercy.  I do try and ask God for help frequently.  I’m not after honor for myself, but I definitely want to bring glory to God.  It is a constant struggle.

We each have our own struggles, temptations and strengths.  I’m hoping I am able to share a bit of God’s love for you through my meanderings.  God does absolutely love you.

Thanks for sharing a moment of time with me today!
