Refreshing Reminders...

So very thankful for reminders and promises such as this...
Matthew 12:18-21
"Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice to victory. In his name the nations will put their HOPE."

Praising God that he will see through to the end HIS JUSTICE and it depends on nothing from me! Oh how thankful for his overwhelming mercy that does not break this "bruised reed", but loves me all the same and continues to provide the HOPE I need!

"There is more mercy in HIM than there is sin in me!" - Richard Sims
