Got Mercy? Got Freedom?

We’re watching and waiting, holding our breath, awaiting your word of mercy. Psalm 123:2 The Message

“What happens when we look up to God in faith? There is an awesome mystery in God that we can never completely penetrate. We cannot define God; we cannot package God. But that doesn’t mean that we are completely at sea with God, never knowing what to expect, nervously on edge all the time, wondering what he might do. We know very well what to expect, and what we expect is mercy.” God’s Message For Each Day

I suppose we are all pretty time bound. We worry about the past. We worry about the future. Jesus cautions his followers in Matthew 6:34 to embrace this day, this hour, this minute, because each day has enough trouble of its own. We are creatures of time. We are created to live in the present moment but, most of us find that difficult to do. We tend to feel confined in the moment. It seems we love to compare the past with the future. The what if we had done that with the what if we do this. Either way, whether we are looking backward or forward we can rob ourselves of the only true moment we can inhabit. Take some time to truly witness the wonder of what’s unfolding today instead of thrashing about in a place we can’t live in anyway. Expect that God showers us with grace and mercy. He did give us Jesus. Expect that there is freedom for today. It’s enough for now.

Living Christ,
We thank you for the joy and privilege to live each day in your presence. Your mercy and love never fails us. . No matter where we are or what we walk through, we never go it alone. Take all that divides my heart Lord, and make it your own.
Amen
