Here’s the skinny: Each Friday, I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker for this super fun quick writing adventure. She gives us a prompt. And we write. For five minutes flat.
Not overthinking or tweaking or editing. We just write.
Let’s get going, shall we?
This weeks prompt: MERCY
The microwave is beeping. The baby is crying. The dog is puking (again– the 5th time today!) on my new beige carpet.
LORD. HAVE. MERCY.
I forget a password to an important online account. I glance at the clock and we are running late– again. The main ingredient I was going to use for supper has apparently passed its prime and smells (and looks) like some freaky refrigerator science experiment.
Lord. Please, please, have mercy.
Life in this world can be hard. Stressful. Annoying. Exhausting. And on those days especially, I find myself talking to God more so than normal, asking for His supernatural strength, patience and energy.
Oh. And His mercy. Because I can’t handle this on my own. I sin. I fail. I fall short.
No, I know I’m not being martyred for my faith or fighting for my life… But these small challenges in life matter to me. And as we’ve said before– if it matters to us, it matters to God.
So as long as I am on this side of heaven, I will continue to ask for His help, sustainment and yes, His mercy.
And you know what? He always delivers.
Dear friends, I pray that whatever today brings, you cling to the truth that God loves you, cares for you and will help you through it. May your day be filled with His love and mercy as you walk with Him.
Praising our Merciful God,
“Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy.” ~Psalm 28:6
