ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

 The Mystery of Mercy



God is so rich in compassion…
He’s so merciful and just.
Long-suffering, kind, and patient…
Wanting what is best for us.

If He were only holiness…
If judgment ruled His heart…
His children wouldn’t stand a chance…
O, but mercy plays a part.

Closely related to God’s Grace,
Mercy’s cloaked in mystery.
Its unmerited forgiveness
Seems to baffle you and me.

We don’t get what we deserve!
O, who can understand?
But God in all His graciousness
Is simply holding back His hand.

Those of us whom He's redeemed…
Whom winds just toss about…
Must learn to live in total trust…
That He will work things out.

When life seems at its darkest…
When we’re straining hard to see.
Then mercy will reflect a Light
From God to you and me.

If we draw warmth from mercy
We won't shiver needlessly.
Joy WILL come in the morning!!!
This is mercy's mystery...

This is our God's guarantee!

(Whose son is praising the Lord
on piano)




Matthew 5:7
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.



Proverbs 3:3-4
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck;
write them upon the table of thine heart:4 So shalt thou find
favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

James 2:12-13
Speak and act as those who are going to be judged
by the law that gives freedom,13 because judgment without
mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful.
.Mercy triumphs over judgment!
