Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Celebrate Mercy and Grace

The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
~ William Shakespeare ~

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 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well in your world. This week, I celebrate sharing encouraging thoughts on God’s mercy and grace.

I love, love, love, the quote above.

There will be times, we’re to extend mercy and grace to situations around us.

Just like God freely extends his mercy and grace to us.   Ain’t life grand!

It’s quite comforting when we extend God’s mercy and grace to Y moments and/or situations.   It steals the ability to vex us.

Prayer and forgiveness steals from Y moments.

Faith and hope steal from Y situations.

Empathy and compassion, on a rough day, steals from Y moments.

Positivity steals from Y moments.

Thank God for his mercy and his grace when we stumble.   It steals from self condemnation and self ridicule. (wink)

Abundant blessings, my friends, and enjoy your weekend because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.

We will face fear with the power of love, faith and mercy. His Grace will give us strength to give compassion as Jesus would want us to do. ❤
