Special Message from our President and Founder--
Kenneth R. Walls
My name is Ken Walls, I am the President and founder of Touched by Mercy Ministries. My wife Kim and I, along with our ministry team, would like to thank you so much for taking the time to journey through our site and discover what this ministry is all about.
Each of us here at Touched by Mercy Ministries has been radically touched by the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through our own wrong choices and sins in our life we understand what it means to find ourselves lost and in need of Hope, Forgiveness, and Restoration.
The feelings of despair and the thoughts of unworthiness scream at you, holding you down in the mud. But, picture this; a loving hand reaches down through the darkness into the mud, grabbing hold of your frail hand. A light brushes away the blackness and a love beyond your understanding permeates your world. The words "I forgive you" ring in your ears. Psalm 86:2 says, "You have forgiven the iniquity of Your people; You have covered all their sin. Selah"
What an awesome truth. The Psalmist didn’t say, some of their sin, but ALL! You see, we believe here at Touched by Mercy Ministries that if you genuinely with your whole heart ask the Lord to forgive you of your sins, He does. And as He does, He begins the restoration process. And when Jesus restores, He fully restores. Remember what 1 John 1:9 says," If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
We at Touched by Mercy Ministries do not, by any stretch of the imagination, believe that we have it all figured out, or that we have some how arrived to a higher level of understanding. We simply believe we are messed up people who have found restoration in Christ beyond what we deserve. We believe like the Apostle Paul when he wrote to the Philippians in Philippians 3:12-14 "Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
It is our prayer that as you visit our website you will sense the presence of the Holy Spirit and are ministered to by the weekly podcast, various blogs, and music, along with books and literature that will be made available.
God bless you so much!
