5 minutes: mercy

GO:

Mercy.

We all want it at times, not realizing that it is there for the taking.

We struggle trying to do things our own way, until we stop struggling and fall to our knees.

That is where we find it.

Mercy on our knees.  Mercy within our reach.  Mercy for the asking.

The women at Mercy House Kenya have found mercy.  Not just in the doors that have opened to welcome, but in the hearts and hands of those who reach out to help them.

With mercy.

STOP.

  1. Love that you wrote, "Mercy within our reach". So true. And with this project, it surely is now all within the reach of a click. So exciting to read so many posts about this project & about mercy.
    Have a great Friday!

  3. OMGosh! "We struggle trying to do things our own way, until we stop struggling and fall to our knees." HOW.TRUE. And then we're like, "it's so easy..." and God's like, "Yep...I've been waiting this whole time. Where've you been?" Thank you for sharing!
