Psalm 17:7-8

Show your wonderful mercy, you who deliver with your right arm those who seek refuge from their foes. Keep me as the apple of your eye.

We all want mercy.

We’ve all experienced times when we felt oppressed or wronged.

We’ve all had times when we felt like the whole world was against us.

It’s then that we often turn to a Higher Power.

We cry out to God for help.

It’s a wonderful thought to believe that we are the apple of God’s eye; that God cherishes us.

Do you believe that?

I think many people don’t.

They struggle with their short-comings and faults.

I know I have!

If you’ve always been modeled a conditional love, it’s hard to believe in one that’s unconditional.

But I have come to know God’s deepest love when I least deserved it.

God is love (1 John 4:8).

So turn to this Love which will always accept you as is.

St. Paul put it this way: “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

Nothing!
