digging deep

Forgiveness. Do you ever feel like 70 x 7 has gone and passed already? Sometimes the forgiveness I'm required to give just wears me out. I wonder how I can possibly extend mercy - again - when I feel like I've been stomped on more times than the doormat in front of my house.

Fill me Lord and forgive me, as I know the mercy you extend to me comes with no limits. Help me to overflow your mercy and forgiveness to others when my own patience and willpower to extend it is gone.

Micah 7:18
Who is a God like you,
who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
but delight to show mercy.
