I have been surprised in some ways that God has opened up a letter writing ministry for me. However, in other ways looking back it seems like such an inevitable path for me. One I enjoy, adds to my prayer life, and God is teaching me about mercy through it. Seeking justice is another lesson I am learning. I find it curious that God would soften my heart and give my eyes a softer vision for mercy, before he fired my heart for justice. I guess you can't really know what is justice or what is revenge if your not seeing it through the lens of mercy.
That is all I am comfortable sharing about such a service really done for God's eyes. The verse/word for this year 2013 was "mercy" and my verse was:
"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8 NIVUK)
God is so good at making beautiful quilts of our lives, when we give it to Him to sew, piece and finally bind it all together
With an eternally binding. Thank you Jesus!
