God's Mercy - (Not so) Wordless Wednesday

Mercy is God's supply system for every need everywhere. Mercy is that kindness, compassion and tenderness which is a passion to suffer with, or participate in, another's ills or evils in order to relieve, heal and restore. ...It is to take another into one's heart just as he is and cherish and nourish him there. Mercy takes another's sins and evils and faults as its own, and frees the other by bearing them to God. Rex Andrews

15-18 “Can a mother forget the infant at her breast,
    walk away from the baby she bore?
But even if mothers forget,
    I’d never forget you—never.
Look, I’ve written your names on the backs of my hands.
    The walls you’re rebuilding are never out of my sight.
Your builders are faster than your wreckers.
    The demolition crews are gone for good.
Look up, look around, look well!
    See them all gathering, coming to you?
As sure as I am the living God”—God’s Decree—
    “you’re going to put them on like so much jewelry,
    you’re going to use them to dress up like a bride.

Isaiah 49:16

The Message (MSG)


  1. It's a great post to start scripture meditation for the day. :) I'm headed over to Isaiah. :)

  2. I love these verses more than you know! "I’d never forget you—never." What a promise! Thank you
