WHEN MERCY FOUND ME

Hey, I am starting a series on some key ‘principles’ (I do not know what else to call them) of Christianity going into the new year.
WHOOOP WHOOOP!
Something new and a great writing challenge for me.
I’ll title it ‘ THE P.O.J SERIES’, yes you will find out eventually what P.O.J stands for but wait till the new year.
I AM BEYOND EXCITED TO SEE HOW THINGS UNFOLD.
So stick around and keep an open mind.

P.S: This is the first of the sequence.

Mercy found me on my knees
Begging with endless pleas,
‘Please, my King,
Unto You my lowly self I bring!’
Over and over, this was my heart’s sorrowful song
Sung unto my Lord, Mighty and Strong.
When Mercy found me.

When Mercy found me,
I could not breathe.
For my glorified temple of sin came crumbling down and there I was beneath.
Undeserving of rescue but Mercy said ‘no!’
So I presented my scarlet-stained records yet Mercy said ‘even though’,
Pointing me to the blood-stained cross
That built a bridge to the Father and carried me across.

When Mercy found me,
He came in the company of grace and love
So that when I was too tired to utter a prayer to God above,
Mercy interceded for me and grace empowered.
Even when I could not hold love for my tainted hands were cowards,
Mercy so tender washed me clean,
Please get what I mean.

When Mercy found me,
In the alley of unworthiness, badly beaten up by the bully called condemnation
He offered absolution and reconciliation.
Took my stripes on His back, stricken and afflicted
So this very girl could never be restricted.
Where awful judgment should have been my conclusion,
You made everlasting life my portion.

When Mercy found me,
He towered over me, my Solid Cover.
‘My Loving Preserver
Take my corrupted words
Give me Yours which is sharper than all two-edged swords.’
Where grace was once frustrated,
Mercy invades where sin once separated.

When Mercy found me,
He roared courage and made me bold.
Took my broken pieces and made me into this masterpiece mold
Mercy so great I could never run from Him.
Mercy so everlasting I could never exhaust Him.
For the Lord is good
And His mercy endures forever, just as He would.

Psalm 116:1-9

 I love the Lord, because He has heard
My voice and my supplications.
Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

The pains of death surrounded me,
And the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me;
I found trouble and sorrow.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord:
“O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!”

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
Yes, our God is merciful.
The Lord preserves the simple;
I was brought low, and He saved me.
Return to your rest, O my soul,
For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

For You have delivered my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
And my feet from falling.
I will walk before the Lord
In the land of the living.here

    Also, can’t wait to see what else God has in store for us.

    Mercy, Grace and love of God – deserving of none, yet overflowing with all – are all the strength a Christian needs to walk this world.
    Thanks for the reminder Ore.

His grace is abundant for all and amazing how He gave His all to see us smile and each day we Crucify Him and He still gives it all for us…people think love is hugs and smiles but what God does for us is my true version of true love….selfless and endless…. We lie to Him but He tells us the truth and still doesn’t leave us well He even added grace to us wow……God bless you Ore
