It’s a good thing God is merciful. He knows all our thoughts and the intents of our hearts…and still He loves us! I am so thankful for God’s mercy. I thank God that Jesus saves me and dwells in my heart, cleaning it up as I go. While I am under construction by the master carpenter, the Lord Jesus, my faith is counted for righteousness. God sees the finished product. God sees this lump of clay and sees the beauty He imagined when He thought me up. He created this lump of clay, too, made ready for the Master’s hand. It might not look like much now, but God sees all the potential He put in it. God sees what will be to His glory. He loves me. I haven’t done a thing to deserve it God loves me because…He does. God loves me because that’s who He is.
