At His Mercy

If it were not for His mercy, would I still be alive?
If it were not for His mercy, surely I would have died.

If it were not for His mercy, would hope still float?
If it were not for His mercy, I wouldn't know where to go.

If it were not for His mercy, would I have compassion for my friends?
If it were not for His mercy, I would drown in my sins.

If it were not for His mercy, would I know Him as Lord?
If it were not for His mercy, my existence would be a bore.

If it were not for His mercy, would I see answers to my prayers?
If it were not for His mercy, I would not know that He cares.

If it were not for His mercy, would I look at things the same?
If it were not for His mercy, life would simply be a game.

If it were not for His mercy, would He have shed His blood?
If it were not for His mercy, we would not be loved.

If it were not for His mercy...

"Lord, have mercy" is a powerful statement that we often use without thinking what it really means. Your thought provoking entry reveals that you absolutely know God's mercy.

doskiddos...i wrote this in about 20 minutes. why did i write it? b/c i had an epiphany that my life, my body, my future, my present are all at the mercy of Christ..i am completely and totally NOT in control of my life. i could have gone on forever, but i started to get dizzy w/the redunant "If it were not for His mercy" on the computer screen!
