Mercy and Goodness, Publishers to the King

You can never go home again, but the truth is you can never leave home, so it’s all right. 

~ Maya Angelou

But in our time something new has been added. What Moses and the prophets witnessed to all those years has happened. The God-setting-things-right that we read about has become Jesus-setting-things-right for us. And not only for us, but for everyone who believes in him. For there is no difference between us and them in this. Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them) and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with himself. A pure gift. He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ.
~ Romans 3:23-24
Mercy and Goodness, Publishers to the King
Always a domicile,
a haven of rest.
Always a place
where yourself is the best.
Always to trust
in the work that’s been done.
Always complete
restored in the One.
Sent to mist over
our mirrors of sin
wipe it all clean
see our image in Him.
Into the rag pile
go fear and doubt
Rags to fine paper
New stories will sprout
fine paper sewn up
binding light-scored.
Mercy & Goodness
this story  restored.
Because of Him,
