Mercy Triumphs Over Judgement

Well, you already know that I have issues. On my list of "Issues", fear of failure is #1. I work hard at appearing to have it all together and I become a freaking basket-case if I sense that the truth might ooze out. I'm a mess! Just scroll down a few post and you'll see the picture of my laundry room from last year....It hasn't improved and neither have I!

There are moments when I feel like God must have the wrong girl. ME? Why would He want to use me? He knows that I hide dishes in the stove and towels in the bathtub. He knows that I yelled at the kids all the way to church last Sunday. He knows the countless times I've disappointed a friend. He's heard my tongue wagging long after it should have shut up. He sees my selfishness. I can not hide who I really am from the Lord. He knows me.

James 2:13 says that "Mercy triumphs over judgment." Mercy, mercy, mercy! I have had mercy showered all over me! I am overwhelmed by grace! It is my prayer that I will extend His mercy to others. It is my prayer that I will love my neighbor as myself. I am not an accident.....I am proof that we serve a MERCIFUL SAVIOR!
