Mercy Is Rewriting My Life
There were certainly days in the past I wondered if this would ever be possible. My broken body has and still does threaten my joy each day. Never does a step feel easy or an event not challenge my limitations. I still wake up daily fighting to get up and I go to bed fighting to rest comfortably. Yet, I’m very grateful for God giving me back some quality of life.
By God’s grace I can still be a husband, dad and pastor. No, I can’t do anywhere near what I wish I could do. However, each day brings moments of opportunity. Opportunities that make a difference. Moments that I’m just glad to share with family and friends.
There’s no doubt that I way overlooked God’s mercies in the past. Guess I didn’t realize it was such a gift just to wake up healthy each day. Such a gift to have strength, purpose, and so much opportunity. Now, while every moment must be calculated I’m so grateful for every moment. I feel God’s mercy everyday my feet hit the floor and opportunity presents itself. God is rewriting the way I live as His mercy covers me daily.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
