You heard me.
You answered me.
It's been three days since Your mercy sought me out and found me. Your mercy swallowed me up and covered me completely. I have not seen the light yet. I have not tasted warmth yet. It is still cold and wet and dark where I sit, but now I know- I am not alone. You see me. You hold me in the palm of your hand. By His grace I have been saved and I know I will be delivered. My Deliverance is Coming!!
