Mercy Drops Round Us Are Falling...



Sometimes a Disciple 
Just Needs 
Mercy...







The LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. (Exodus 34:6 ESV)


God tolerates even our stammering, and pardons our ignorance whenever something inadvertently escapes us - as, indeed, without this mercy there would be no freedom to pray.
--John Calvin 



Mercy should make us ashamed, wrath afraid to sin.
--William Gurnall 



I would say to my soul, O my soul, this is not the place of despair; this is not the time to despair in. As long as mine eyes can find a promise in the Bible, as long as there is a moment left me of breath or life in this world, so long will I wait or look for mercy, so long will I fight against unbelief and despair."
--John Bunyan (1628 - 1688



"Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life."
--King David



We implore the mercy of God, not that He may leave us at peace in our vices, but that He may deliver us from them.
--Blaise Pascal

...But for the showers we plead!

Grace and mercy are daily needs, and praise God He offers both in large supply!

We have been given mercy in supernatural abundance.
We need to show mercy in all of our relationships. It should be in our DNA.

Gregg -
This post was like a cleansing rain that washed over my soul today. (Interestingly enough, it came on a day that we had actual rain all day!)

Thank you for sharing this. I am encouraged to think of God's goodness and mercy following me every day of my life, for the rest of my life.

Praise God for His mercies!

GOD BLESS!

Bunyan truly has amazing way with words!
