I am human. I was born into sin. I have fallen.
I am human. I have been reborn into grace. I have still fallen, but this time I get back up again submitting myself completely to mercy’s reign.
Wow, this is a new awakening.
I was on a road of destruction. The pavement was curvy, broken, and leading me to a dead end. At the end of the road lay my dreams shattered, broken, and wreaking of hopelessness.
The God of mercy and grace took the fragments of my brokenness and remade me. It hasn’t been a speedy process, but one that takes time and growth. I can’t say that each day has been easy or that I haven’t stumbled along the way, but I can say that He gave me strength to recognize that one stumble doesn’t make me lame. So again I get back up and walk. I have bruises and scars that serve as reminders of where I have been and how far I have come. His love is matchless and He finds the good in me when others scoff and mock me for my past failures.
Through God’s mercy and grace I have recognized the dreams and talents He has placed in my life and realize it is never too late to be what He has called me to be. He has placed a calling on my life to be the best mommy to a sweet little man who will no doubt follow after Christ. He is my miracle boy and when he meets others (most of the time strangers), he runs to them to give them warm, sweet, loving hugs. I’ve been blessed to hear reports of how this two year old child touched lives of people he did not know at exactly the time they needed it…that’s sensitivity to the spirit.
Another calling is to minister to others through word and song. I love to sing more than words could really describe and God has allowed me to sing with a group who believe in sharing their talents for the glorification of the Father who called us. It’s not about us as singers, but about the one who gave the gift. I bowed my head low for many years not feeling “good enough” or “worthy” but God has shown me that my lack of confidence was the hindrance to my blessing. So as I wrap this up for today, let me just say that I’m thankful that mercy’s reign got a hold of me, broke the chains, and set my spirit free. Since that day, I’ve not been the same; I let go and found mercy’s reign.
