#FallingIntoWinter 4

🍂🍁🍃 FALL 🍃🍁🍂 back on God's mercy. 

I don't know about you, but I can be hard-headed. I don't always listen. I'm not always careful with God's voice. And that's an awful way to be. 

If the God of the universe loves and treasures you and wants to speak to you, the least you could do is listen and obey. But I don't always. Shame on me. And yet, that unfathomable self-sacrificing love comes back to save me again and again and again. 

I had a really painful conversation yesterday. Something I was trying to build is shattered and may be irreparable. I was stubborn because I was determined to build, despite God's small gentle voice warning me that it could shatter. My hands weren't big enough. They never have been and never will be. 

But God is so loving and gentle that He spent a few days before preparing my heart for the impact. He sent me a blessing and some joy and He MADE me lie down in green pastures. So I'm okay. 

His mercy was there before our mistakes were. He only needs your permission to administer it to you. Because you're gonna mess up. You're gonna break something you should have never tried to lift. And if you don't have access to Divine mercy, you risk damaging your soul with the failure. 

If you can't figure out how to do right on the first try (which most of us can't most of the time), fall on His lack of desire to punish you. He cries when we do. He hurts when we do. He'll minimize the hurt and the tears even after we break things. We just have to let Him.
