6 days to my birthday

"But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain......." Ist corinthians 15 vs 10.
"... I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion." Exodus 33 vs 19.

Happy new month everyone, and Thank God for seeing yet another new month in great health and a sound state of mind.
Six more days to the day i would be born. I can't begin to imagine how my mum felt when she was pregnant with me.
I'm thankful to God for yet another new day, which starts as a new month, a month when i was born. There are many things i truly can't remember to be thankful to God for, but one thing i thank Him for everyday of my life is for being so merciful towards me. I say it day after day, i won't be alive today if not for the grace of God (Sure the same applies to everyone). I'm not one of those who have their christain life at a report card of satisfactory or excellent, so imagine where my christain life would be. I have disobeyed Him countless times, i have been so wrong many times, but He never ceased to have mercy on me, my case with God is like the jury reading out the verdict to God:
God: (Asking Jesus) How does your client plead?
Jesus: Your Honour, my client has confessed of her sins, and pleads guilty to you.
God: No recess, the case continues........ Has the jury come to a conclusion?
Jury: Yes Your Honour.
God: Read out the verdict.
Jury: "We the jury, find the defendant; Rinsola guilty of the white and black lies, guilty of disobedience. guilty of not paying her tithes, guilty of being ungrateful, guilty of being guilty.
God: I appreciate your time and dedication in looking for all her faults, and for finding her guilty, But I the Judge would have mercy on whom I will have mercy on, and compassion on whom I will have compassion on, and Rinsola you are hereby sentenced to My grace and mercy. I would not want to see you here again, but never fail to remember that my grace is sufficient for you.
Rinsola: DUMBFOUNDED! Are You saying You are letting me go just like that?
Jesus: He's the Judge remember? His word seals it all. But remember that Prov 28:13 (NIV) He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
I'm not encouraging us to keep doing the wrong things all the time and asking God for His mercy, but i want us to realize that, while we are yet on this earth, sin sure would be lurking around. Romans 3 vs 10 & 23....... Meaning we all cannot live up to God's perfect way But we would have to deal with God's discipline for messing up.
Rinsola is a testimony of God's never ending grace and mercy. His grace is unlimited and forever, But His mercy is vast, yet limited.
I'm thankful to God today for His grace and mercy, and i desire and pray that it's not exhausted over my life. I hope you all experience His mercy and grace in your lives. HAPPY NEW MONTH EVERYONE!
