His Mercy Flows in Waves - Luke 1:50

His mercy flows in wave after wave on those who are in awe before him. Luke 1:50

 His mercy flows in wave after wave on those who are in awe before him.
Luke 1:50

I love going to the Gulf beaches that are so close to our home. Even on the hottest summer days, the breeze that comes off the water is refreshing. The sights, sounds and smells are a symphony of senses that rejuvenate the soul. I can be lulled to sleep by the waves that come, one after another, onto the white sand beach. An afternoon at water's edge always calms me while giving me energy, if that is possible.

So it is with God's mercy. Just as the waves flow onto the beach, again and again unending, God's mercy flows over us continuously. And, oh boy, do I need it! Like All. The. Time! Honestly, I try to always do my best but I am human. I am flawed with weaknesses that sometimes are too hard to overcome. 

But His mercy is like a day on the beach. It calms me, knowing that, even though I don't deserve it, I have God's love and forgiveness. It also energizes me to work harder to be a better person and to use my talents to further His kingdom.

Do you think you're beyond help? That your past choices have pushed you too far away from God's mercy and grace? Don't believe those lies. Nobody is too far away from God that He won't hear even a whispered prayer and come rushing to your side. You may be too far gone for people, but God is always close by, just waiting for you to open your heart. Do it today. It's not too late. 💖
