Mercy

21 Dec

Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!

she cries, she cries so silently.

Muffled by shame, her spirit exclaims,

but from her mouth not a sound escapes.

Jesus, Son of David, it’s mercy she needs,

the fight much too rough on her own.

It seemed yesterday she was doing just fine,

but her monsters, oh Lord, they have grown.

And her hands they are weak,

and her eyes they are heavy,

she’s weary from all her striving.

Jesus, Son of David, it’s mercy we seek,

the victory won in your dying.

And as she cries out, on her floor, face down,

prepared to be punished for sin,

Your mercy pours out, oh the floodgates are down,

Your love, oh Lord, always wins.

    Amen and Amen again!
    How very true of our Lord to pour out love and mercy when we are such wretched souls; He grabs our hand and walks with us and promises to forgive and forget as far as the east is from the west and from there He promises to never leave us or forsake us!
    Merry Christmas everyone! Salvation has come!

    WOW!! Literally, a few seconds before I opened my email, I said, “Lord, all of this I’m handling is just too much for me to handle any longer!” And then I see this posting confirming that God will give me mercy in my time of need!
