Day 9 (Mercy): 30 Days of Thankfulness

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4:16

 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 

Ephesians 2:4-6

I am thankful for God’s mercy. I have heard mercy described as “undeserved favor” and feel like that covers it. I didn’t deserve for Jesus to wash my sins away and make me a new creature, but He did. I don’t deserve His help and guidance every day, especially when I get myself messes, but He is there for me to turn to. I don’t deserve all the blessings I’ve been writing about, but I have more than I even need. I don’t deserve a home in heaven, free from every care of this life, but Jesus has it prepared for me and for all those who “love his appearing.” And I thank Him for that!!

P.S. Sorry this post is a day late. I fell asleep writing last night!
