Monday Mercies

For the soul who is weary,

For the heart that needs bravery...

If you feel lost or lonely,

Helpless or hopeless, 

Shaken or broken, 

Needy or needless...

There is One who sees and knows, who is brave when you are trembling,

Who is infinitely available when no one else has the time or love or care.

He knit you together before you were born and He never tires of putting you back together each time you unravel.

He loves you and has plans for you. 

He is your rest, your strength and your song.

If you're in need of new mercies this morning, run to Jesus.

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

If there's one thing we're promised in this world, it's the trouble. Thankfully we're not just promised that one thing. There's a bigger and better promise beyond all of that: He has overcome the world. 

And if He lives in us? We are overcomers too.

Even if we feel anything but victorious.

It's true. And you don't have to believe it for it to be true. Hand your doubts and fears and troubles to Jesus, the One who has overcome all things for you. 

He cares.


  1. I need this more than you can possibly know right now. Thank you for the perfect words as I try to put my world back together...terribly shaken and broken. I am grateful that you have reminded me that there is always hope...with Jesus.

  2. Yep. "Help me with my unbelief." I don't have to feel His presence in me to know He's there. Thank you for expressing it so beautifully.
