Mercy Sweet to Me

Your mercy cares for me beyond what is seen.

Where curses be found, I’m not bound; My heart will pound with your trumpet sound.

Pull me close-Your love’s large dose; The enemy steals, while your love heals.

Your mercy cares for me beyond what I see.

You crown me with favor, that which I savor; Love sweet to me, with you I will be.

But God, being [so very] rich in mercy, because of His great and wonderful love with which He loved us, even when we were [spiritually] dead and separated from Him because of our sins, He made us [spiritually] alive together with Christ (for by His grace – His undeserved mercy – you have been saved…).

Ken and I have been away training to minister to preschool children with CEF ministries. We had such a great time of fellowship and learning. We stayed at a lake house provided by a friend of the ministry, which was lovely. One thing I didn’t bank on, was that there would be no WiFi. It was challenging in the beginning not being able to write to you my friends, but honestly, it was good to be away from the internet. That said, I am glad to be back and sharing with all of you.

May His rich mercy and love encompass you today,

Jacquie ♥

  1. Welcome back Jacquie! I’m glad you had a time of refreshing and that everything went well with the ministry. I love the poem, especially these words…

    “Pull me close-Your love’s large dose; The enemy steals, while your love heals.”

    His love does heal us! 💕

    1. Thank you Dawn, so good to be back. I was just reading a post titled “Inner Strength” @, that spoke of exhaustion in the best way. It’s so good to work hard and have that good exhaustion, and be refreshed because we are in His way. You pulled out my favorite line of this poem as well. When I need His healing presence, I think about how much He loves me, and I am awash in His peace. May His healing love overtake you today – dear Dawn. ♥
