For His Mercy Endures Forever

God gives us peace when we have none.

He gives us grace when we do not deserve it.

He loves us when we have not loved others.

He gives strength when we are feeble.

He blesses us when we have not been a blessing to others.

He saves us when we are falling.

He talks to us when no one else will.

He is patient with us when we have been impatient to other people.

He comforts us in our greatest hurt, when we have not comforted others.

He gives us mercy when we were not merciful.

He gives us rest when our hearts are in turmoil.

He forgives us even when others are not forgiving.

He gives more than we ever deserve. We all have fallen short of His glory, but He still loves us with greater love than we could ever imagine or give back.

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for men, for He satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things. -- Psalm 107:8-9
