Can you hear God’s tender mercy?
Your words of mercy echo in my spirit:
“I forgive you for what you have done.”
“You can start over. Begin again.”
“I’ll be there as you recover.”
“Trust that there’s a better way.”
“Try your best to not do that again.”
“I know you can change your ways.”
May I also speak your words of mercy
In my response to those who stray,
Fail and fall, and attempt to start over.
