The Promise Is: Mercy

Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while
 he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his
 thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon 
him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your
 thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are 
higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts 
than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, 
and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and
 bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: 
it shall not return unto me void, but it 
shall accomplish that 
which I please, and it
 shall prosper in the
 thing whereto I sent 
it. For ye shall go out
 with joy, and be led 
forth with peace: the
 mountains and the hills 
shall break forth before 
you into singing, and
 all the trees of the field
 shall clap their hands. 
Instead of the thorn shall
 come up the fir tree, and
 instead of the brier shall come up the
 myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
~*~ Isaiah 55:6-13 ~*~

Because You give mercy, I will seek You. Because Your word cannot lie, I will seek You. No matter how long; no matter how dark. If I must climb the heavens to find You, I will. If I must be still, I will. If my eye never sees my reward on earth, I will die seeking You. For a life spent seeking Your face is better than one without it.

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, 
Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
Psalm 27:8
