Lyrical Friday - Tender Mercy

I don't know about you, but as for me, this week has felt eternal. With great joy I say: 
Happy Friday to YOU! 
Today I was able to witness men and women, who once were enslaved by heavy chains, walk as free as ever. One man shared testimony of how he turned his life around and is now a new man. All of the people in that room, were now free and clean because someone tendered mercy unto them. The slate of their past stands now clean. Though this wasn't a church setting, nor was Christ ever mentioned, I couldn't help but think about Him. -

Yet I still dare to hope

    when I remember this: 

The faithful love of the Lord never ends! 
His mercies never cease. 
Great is his faithfulness; 
His mercies begin afresh each morning. 
I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; 
therefore, I will hope in him!
Lamentations 3:21-24
We are guilty of falling short, not one is righteous, and all have sinned. As it is, we never do stop sinning but we can dare to hope. Upon the moment of repentance and surrender to God, His love and mercy are tendered to us. His love covering a multitude of sin. His mercy, greater than our sin(s), is made new to us each day! What a wonderful God! 

Tender Mercy, Enter The Worship Circle 

Praise The Lord, Oh My Soul
and All My Deepest Parts
give Praise To The One
who Pulled You Out Of Darkness

tender Mercy, You Forgive Me
slow To Anger, Quick To Love
-as High As The Mountains Try
your Love Falls All Around Me
as Wide As The East To West
my Sins Are Taken From Me

Thank you so much for this post Raquel. I always have to remember that His tender mercies are never ending towards me. It's that mercy that draws me back to Him when I stray. And the song you added is perfect for this post. You are a blessing to me this day.
