Mercy - a pastel painting by Mary Zore

The Savior's Hand--Mercy's Touch (Pastel)
This pastel was created as an image to depict Christ's healing touch.The woman could be any of us who have felt God's touch in their lives.
It expresses my faith that God's arms are always open, and that any pain we have can be changed into joy through His grace and mercy, which is boundless.
Today, many women suffer sorrow from a culture that has encouraged them to have abortions. I have several friends who shared with me the pain they feel over a past abortion.
I know that it must feel like they have done something which cannot be undone. Yet God can turn every situation into good in some way. We must never lose that faith.
Christ's cross and resurrection gives us perfect confidence in His victory over death.
If some woman who feels pain over an abortion, sees this picture, I hope that she realizes that God loves her and that her tears can be turned into joy. God can bring good out of every situation if we will only turn to Him.
