Carried By Christ

O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. Psalm 139:1-4

Gracious and Merciful God

Nehemiah 9:31

Nevertheless for thy great mercies' sake thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for thou art a gracious and merciful God.

Our prayers and our duty is to Serve and Glorify God. As we do so we need to remain humble, thankful, and watchful. Pride and obstinacy are sins which ruin the soul and rapidly become an addictive drug demanding a constant need for more and more. It is difficult to persuade the broken-hearted to hope, but we serve a God ready to pardon. He is gracious and merciful.
