This post is short but sweet. What could be sweeter than mercy? I was fortunate to hear Anne Lamott speak recently about her newest book, Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy. Two words: READ IT. You will feel mercy flow over you, and in turn lay it upon others.
We have all been hurt in this life and we have all hurt others. None of us is deserving of mercy, yet we can bring healing by bestowing mercy as God does for us. How appropriate for this Easter weekend! Mercy, indeed, was great at Calvary.
Enjoy Georgia’s own Casting Crowns, whose home church is just up the road from me, singing At Calvary . Words by William R. Newell (1895). Music by Daniel B. Towner (1895)
Happy Easter to one and all from GeorgiaJanet.
|1. Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died
2. By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
3. Now I’ve giv’n to Jesus everything,
4. Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
