Great is His Mercy

Each day is full of His mercies, let’s not waste any of them by beating ourselves up.

~ from Having a Martha Home the Mary Way by Sarah Mae

Now there’s a proverbial kick up the backside for those of us who are recovering from co-dependency (you’re welcome)!

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,

His mercies never end;

they are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (NRSVA)

  1. I love that passage from Lamentations, Sandy, and your quote. If God’s mercies are REALLY new every morning, then it doesn’t make sense for us to keep punishing ourselves for our failures. Of course we need to ask God for strength to live the way He wants us to, but we also need to give ourselves permission to be human. “For He knows how we are formed; He remembers that we are dust.” (Psalm 103:14)
