Sometimes, the words invoke despair. They bring about a world of doubt, hopelessness, and cynicism. They fill me with anxiety.
But for the last several days, I've opened my eyes and immediately remember that I'm "seated in Christ in the heavenly realms" and that I'm invited to receive from God and replenish any empty places in me.
These mercies are new every morning. I wake up today and live in the words receive and replenish.
