If you’re reading this, then you woke up this morning with blessings already abundant the moment you opened your eyes. The gift of life, with breath in your lungs and the opportunity to make new and better decisions. However, as sinners in need of a daily walk with our savior, there is yet another gift that we receive…mercy.

Lamentations 3: 22-23 states “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”

In this verse we find that we are here because of the Father’s great mercy towards us, and not because of anything that we have done. Furthermore, because of our great need we get this undeserved mercy every day. Upon reading this verse, believers can breathe a sigh of relief. We have a loving Father who is faithful and merciful, caring for us each step of the way as we strive to be more like Christ each day.
