Inspirational Stories of Hope:
The light of this truth captivated me this morning:
Immense in mercy
with an incredible love,
He embraced us.
His mercy and love is immeasurable and unending.
This love was beautifully shown in practical ways at last night’s benefit for Mercy House. The gathering was packed with graduates from Mercy House, senators, and ministry leaders around the city of Dallas who have seen the power of this ministry.
Mercy House empowers single women with hope, help, and a future. Watch this powerful testimony:

He was merciful and made us ALIVE in Christ…
“It wasn’t so long ago that you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin.
You let the world, which doesn’t know the first thing about living, tell you how to live.
You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience.
We all did it, all of us doing what we felt like doing,
when we felt like doing it, all of us in the same boat.
It’s a wonder God didn’t lose his temper and do away with the whole lot of us.
“Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us.
He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ.
He did all this on his own, with no help from us!
Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven
in company with Jesus, our Messiah.” Ephesians 2:1-6 MSG
