TRY AGAIN...TENDER MERCIES, LOVING KINDNESS

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

TRY AGAIN MY FRIEND... MAYBE THIS TIME...

BLESS THE LORD WHEN THE DOVE COMES, BLESS THE LORD WHEN THE DOVE FLIES...BLESS THE LORD...GET UP, MY FRIEND AND TRY AGAIN...

WHAT CRUSHES ONE WILL BUILD ANOTHER...

Praise God, there has been a terrible storm. The damage appears to be a total DESTRUCTION.

But God's mercy comes again...

There is a new day coming... This storm shall pass...

The building of the ARK has been long and wearisome.

The first time out the DOVE RETURNED as she found NO REST...

Genesis 8:8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; 9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. 10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;

We have been tossed to and fro, the storm has been so long, and there seems no answer. God's tender mercies

and loving kindness is STILL THERE.

GOD IS BRINGING REST TO THE WEARY...

RETURN O, MY SOUL TO THE REST IN THE LORD...

WEARY AND TIRED THE DOVE RETURNS TO THE HAND OF NOAH...

THE DOVE COULD NOT FLY ANY LONGER... SHE COULD NOT MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT...

WE MUST TRY AGAIN... TRY AGAIN...

Genesis 8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

Genesis 8:11 (MSG) It came back in the evening with a freshly picked olive leaf in its beak. Noah knew that the flood was about finished.

THE DOVE DID NOT JUST RETURN TO THE ARK, THE DOVE RETURNED TO THA HAND OF NOAH... Praise God from whom all blessings flow...

THE DOVE BROUGHT BACK THE OLIVE BRANCH --- A SIGN OF GOD'S TENDER MERCIES AND LOVING KINDNESS to the hand of Noah...

God's mercies come from the nail scarred hands... THE PRESENCE OF JESUS!!!!

GET UP, MY FRIEND AND TRY AGAIN...

WHAT CRUSHES ONE WILL BUILD ANOTHER...

WE MUST COME INTO HIS PRESENCE FOR HIS TENDER MERCIES AND LOVING KINDNESS...

Abraham came to God and was never the same...

Jacob came into God's presence and was forever changed...

In one night SAMUEL HEARD THE LORD AND WAS FOREVER CHANGED.

Psalm 63:3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Psalm 63:3 (NIV) Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

Psalm 63:3 (NLT) Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!

Psalm 63:3 (MSG) In your generous love I am really living at last! My lips brim praises like fountains.

GET UP, MY FRIEND AND TRY AGAIN...

WHAT CRUSHES ONE WILL BUILD ANOTHER...

COME, THERE IS AN INVITATION: COME...

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

HEAR THE INVITATION TO COME AND STAY IN THE PRESENCE OF JESUS... NOT JUST VISIT, BUT DWELL FOREVER.

There are some serious issues that can make the DOVE STAY AWAY... We need the tender mercies.

1. DO NOT CRITICIZE OTHERS.

Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Why think we have the right to JUDGE others?

Judgment shows a lack of respect and appreciation. Your attitude should be an attitude of gratitude.

To constantly criticize each other is building a WALL OF DIVISION THAT WILL ALWAYS BOOMERANG and bring great harm.

GET UP, MY FRIEND AND TRY AGAIN...

WHAT CRUSHES ONE WILL BUILD ANOTHER...

2. Hear a general observation: DO NOT SIGH/SNORT. we fall into stupid habits that injure those around us...

There is a dangerous habit that PUSHES OTHERS AWAY...

To sigh often becomes an involuntary act that expresses body language and shows your emotions or feelings.

It is taking in and letting out a long breath in a way that shows you are bored, disappointed, not interested, or weary.
