It is my birthday in two days, and I am glad I have this opportunity to be in this side of eternity. I am one grateful lady to be so blessed and highly favored.
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.
I Timothy 1:15-16 NKJV
I, Joan, I obtained mercy!
I obtained mercy to have gone through all that I have gone through and yet standing strong! Oh, I obtained mercy
I obtained mercy to fall seven times and get back up
I obtained mercy to be hurt many times over yet not bitter
I obtained mercy to have lost relationships and yet remain His bride
I obtained mercy to have suffered financially yet all needs are met always and on time
I obtained mercy that even in the struggle like Israel, I remain a threat
I obtained mercy to be blessed and be a blessing
I obtained mercy to be wealthy, healthy, hopeful, and happy
I obtained mercy to be living an intentionally joyous life regardless of situation and circumstances
I obtained mercy to have been ordained, called, chosen, and sent
I obtained mercy for I am brand new, all things are transforming from glory to glory!
Hallelujah! Glory to God in the highest!
