Mercy – Christ showed us the way

With a dead end before us, Christ showed us the way;

When we walked in the night time Christ brought us the day.

With our faces all hidden, Christ carried our shame;

When we felt so unwanted, Christ called out our name.

With a cup that was empty, Christ brought us His well;

When facing destruction, Christ saved us from Hell.

With our fate like a leper, Christ reached out to heal;

When we liked like a phony, Christ brought what was real.

With our fists in defiance, Christ stretched out His hand;

When our footsteps were sinking, Christ helped us to stand.

With no hope of heaven, Christ came from above;

When our hearts were so empty, Christ poured out His love.

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.    – 1 Peter 2:9-10 (NKJV)

About Andrea

I am from Whitby, Ontario. I have lived in Romania for 9 years as a missionary but I am currently in Canada on a sabbatical break at this time. I have also lived in South Korea for a year and I have also been to Russia, Uganda, Albania and the Czech Republic on short-term mission trips. In 2012, God also gave me an amazing opportunity to go to Mozambique for the Harvest Mission School with Iris Ministries as well. I love children, reaching out to people who are in need and vulnerable, I have a passion to fight against the injustice issue of human trafficking and to simply share the love of Jesus wherever I go. I also love cats too and I have a cat of my own named Minnie!
