and yet

“And yet, because your mercy is great,
    you did not forsake or destroy them.
You are a gracious and merciful God!” Nehemiah 9:31

you could hold a grudge,
but gift us grace;
you could stay constantly frustrated,
but choose to remain patient;
you could close your ears,
but always listen to our brokenness;
you could be as hard-headed as we are,
but you melt your heart
and pour it unto us over and over.
