Day 219, August 11

When I first heard the phrase "tender mercies," I knew I had heard the words of angels.   For where do tender mercies come from but the Lord?

Evidence of the Lord's tender mercies are all about us ... if we but care to look.  I see His mercies in the recovery of a dear friend after she endured months of grueling chemotherapy.  I hear His mercies in the voices of my grandchildren.  I feel His mercies when I utter a prayer.

The Lord's tender mercies are much like His miracles.  We have only to be attuned to the Spirit, to be sensitive enough to look, to listen, to feel.

This I know for sure:  His tender mercies are there for all of us.

  1. I love the topic of tender mercies. They are most definitely all around us, many of which we are probably not even aware of. How grateful I am for the Lord's tender mercies.
