Remember the last time you were so loaded down with stuff that you could barely move? Maybe it was a bunch of grocery bags or five gallon buckets of water for the garden or shopping bags on a recent outing with your wife.
Or how about a time when you were completely covered up with something. Buried under sand at the beach. Drenched by hundreds of gallons of water from a waterfall. Smothered in a pile of autumn leaves.
You get the idea.
Being completely covered to the point that you are lost in whatever it is that engulfs you.
He saves my life from the grave and loads me with love and mercy. ~ Psalm 103:4
Of all the things that could totally engulf us, nothing compares to the love and mercy of God!
