Living Life God's Way 4/24/2006; His Mercy Is New Each Morning
- +Living Life God's Way+
We can walk without fear, full of hope and courage and strength....
waiting for the endless good which God is always giving
as fast as He can get us to take it in.
For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive;
and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
Failure is not a terminal condition, unless we allow it to be. We
may stumble, but if we repent and receive the correction and instruction
from God, we will find grace and mercy and the ability to keep stepping
forward on our journey. Ignoring and making excuses for our failures,
leaves us stagnate and retreating back into our past. We have all failed
at one point or another, but God will never fail us. His mercy is new
each morning. God understands our human frailties, but not when we
attempt to excuse it. We can run from the truth, but must face it and
embrace the correction and instruction of God. His grace is sufficient.
Failure is an opportunity for God to strengthen, teach us and prepare us
for our destiny on this Earth and our eternal destiny in His presence.
How grateful we need to be for the grace and mercy of our God. We were
nothing, yet He has made us heirs to His Kingdom, we had nothing, and He
has given us everything.
