I Don't Deserve It


I don't want to do _________

because they don't deserve it.

I will not forget _________

because it hurt too much.

I don't care about them anymore

so I will hold a grudge.....

The words

written on a page

in a story

that is missing a

Chapter called

Mercy

But

a Story without

mercy~

"compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone

whom it is within one's power to punish or harm."(google)

Is not a story that I want to read

Is not a story that I want to live

but

I have

and that story

unravels quickly

because it not only hurts

the one who isn't receiving

mercy

but

it also hurts the one who isn't giving

mercy...

Me & You.

Mercy is giving us what we don't deserve

Mercy is not receiving what we do deserve

mercy

is void of

Grace

because

Grace is giving us what we don't deserve

Grace is receiving what we don't deserve

So

what if my story

and

what if your story

never had a

Chapter

called

Mercy...

I wouldn't want to get to the last chapter of that story

because the last sentence

would not read

"....and they Lived Happily Ever After".

So

Put Me in His Story

because

I want what I don't deserve

the gift is that is undeserved~

For it is by grace ____________ (PUT your name)

has been saved, through faith—and this is not from ____________

it is the gift of God—

But because of His great love for _________________,

God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ

even when _____________

was dead in transgressions—

it is by grace ______________

has been saved. Ephesians 2

So

let's

begin a new chapter in our story

and

Receive the Gifts of

Mercy & Grace

so that we can

pass these gifts along

to the

characters

in our story

who also

don't deserve what we think that they don't deserve~

Maybe by not saying what you really want to say

because you know it would hurt them more,

or

Maybe not doing what you really want to do

because you know if you did, it would hurt them more.

Release yourself

by

Releasing them

by

Receiving His

Grace & Mercy

because

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!

His mercies never cease.

Great is His faithfulness;

His mercies begin afresh each morning.

_______________ (Put your name)

says ,

“The Lord is my inheritance; therefore,

_______________

will hope in Him!” Lamentations 3:22-24
