let mercy draw you near

In this Lenten season, we can be reminded – if we take the time and look – that God‘s goodness is everywhere.

We can focus on the direness, or we can remember that Jesus came to defeat it all.

He’s with us when we arise in the morning, He’s with us as we navigate our days, and He’s with us when we close our eyes at night.

Look for his goodness in the joyful eyes of your children, in the expectant wagging of your dog’s tail, in your friend’s contagious laughter, in the wind that blows through your hair, and the sun that shines on your face.

He is near and He sees everything.

He will make all things right in the end. For this we can be sure.

Let mercy draw you near and lay your burdens at the cross.

God is good and His love for you is fierce.

Hebrews 4 : 16 Let us then approach God‘s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
