If Mercy Had A Face

Updated on August 23, 2015

I can only imagine that if mercy truly had a face,

It would be the most beautiful, and full of amazing grace,

Mercy is only one of the many attributes of the Creator's heart,

Compassions that fail not, without end,

Where there is always a new start,

The face of mercy shines brightly, with majesty

Magnificently sweet, softly, and brilliantly,

Listen, can't you hear mercy whispering with audible tranquility,

Even peace stands still and judgment is silenced

It is God's mercy we need to release His loving kindness,

Gloriously shining in absoluteness, so great!

Always at work securing our destiny and fate,

Mercy brings with it kindness and is so very tender

The ointment it gives is the number one life mender,

Mercy is a characterstic which must live through us too

Be kind and let mercy have its expression in all that you do,

Mercy is pure with loving-kindness as its companion

Walking through the earth hand and hand on assignment,

Mercy follows lives which are in such great a need

It is the product of an incorruptible seed,

I can now see mercy and don't have to imagine a face

None will ever do then that of the unmerited favor,

We know as grace.

********Kindness is true beauty************

      Hi Dana: It so wonderful to break bread with you. Mercy is a kindness that only God could fully know the depth of. For the finite mind it would be like taking the Atlantic Ocean and putting it into a teacup. Yet, He has given us power to be partakers of this divine treasure in and through our earthen vessels. It is always my pleasure to converse with you. Thanks for hubbing with me and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

      How absolutely beautiful. What a pleasure to wake up to a poem so beautiful and profound. Yes, we do see beautiful mercy every morning from the Lord. Thank you for reminding us that everyday we wake up is a day to worship and continue to get our house in order. Yes, if mercy had a face it would be: beautiful, kind, compassion, and full of mercy.
