“Your Grace and Mercy brought me through…
I’m living this moment because of you…
I want to thank you and praise you too…
You’re Grace and Mercy brought me through…”
An old song my grandmother used to sing during the devotional services at my childhood church. I remember always being taught that Grace and Mercy were like sisters. They went together. As I grew older I realized that was a way for the adults to help me understand that without both God’s Grace and Mercy to cover me in the times where my sins could have overwhelmed me I could never make it.
As a Teenager I learned that we received new Mercy daily through God’s Grace. That every day we were given an entirely new wealth of Mercy to rely on to make it through the day. If we messed up, slipped up or simply allowed ourselves to forget to be what we promised God we would be Mercy would be there to catch us and hold us up. To return us to right standing and a place of forgiveness where we could once again begin our walk to the path god had set before us.
When I hear Mercy as an Adult, I still picture those images given to me in my youth. The Sister to Grace and the Daily Gift given to help me make it another day. Mercy is what I need and what I appreciate because it is not what I can earn or deserve it is what is freely given simply because He loves me.
