I’ve been sharing some experiences of people who have shown me such grace, forgiveness, patience and kindness and how it changed me for the better.

There is one who has gone beyond everyone else.

I might not a serial killer or drug dealer, but I don’t have to look too long and deep into my heart to find a self-absorbed, arrogant, know-it-all, fake.

When I weigh it all up I realise, if God sent me to an eternity without Him, He would be doing the right thing. Justice done. I have nowhere left to go but fall on His mercy.

And heart-rendingly, that’s what He gives me, His mercy. God has been so merciful to me; I’m trying to show mercy to others.

That is a life truly at the top; giving up on ego, and throwing yourself on God’s mercy.
