Tender Mercies That Came My Way

I was a little upset to say the least about finding out about my brother.  That night I prayed that I would have some tender mercies come to me.  I just needed to know that someone knew of my pain.

So, I have a great group of friends.  Many times we send group texts to each other.  So I sent out a group text asking my friends to pray for me.  Well, there is one lady in the group that for some reason can't receive group texts on her phone so for some reason I didn't send her one.  (too lazy to write it again I guess)  The very next day she sent me a sweet text saying that she was thinking about me and hoped I was doing okay.

The next day a former student left me the sweetest note saying that she loved me.  Totally melted my heart.  This girl has had a lot of issues  to deal with in her young life.

I am so grateful to the Lord for showing me these tender mercies.  I think they are all around us if we are opened to seeing them. Have you had any tender mercies shown to you?

That is so wonderful to hear! God is always listening to us and it really fills our hearts when we feel his love.

I think I've probably had more tender mercies than I even notice. They can masquerade as coincidence, and I need to make sure I am seeing them for what they are…gifts and answers to prayer.

Thanks for the reminder, and I'm glad you are noticing them!
