Today I had a song stuck in my head..don’t you hate when the world just pushes its way into your thinking when you are working so hard to keep it out! This is what was in my mind…
I don’t want you to come round here no more
beggin for mercy!
You don’t know how stong my weakness is
or how much you hurt me.
I am so glad that Jesus gave me a new song…that old song was so depressing and so very much condemning. I love that there is no condemnation in Christ, and mercy that is new everymorning. I do always need HIS mercy, and a do-over from time to time…just saying the word gives me so much confidence to try harder, and trust more. When weighing out the words in the old song, against CeCe Winans “Mercy said No”…hands down I want Jesus!
Thank you Jesus for putting a new song in my mouth, and dance in my heart. Thank you for extending your mercy freely, and not a chance you will ever say the words of the old song. We must break your heart when we walk away and become so distracted. How do we do that? You are so much more beautiful than all the things we run to. Forgive us for our waywardness, and strengthen us in your Word. Thank you for being so Merciful to ones like me who don’t deserve a thing from you. I love that you looked the enemy in the face and made him cower as you told him, “no, this one is mine”. How I praise you, thank you and adore you!
New song–Cece Winans-Mercy said No (it gets a little long, but i won’t know if you turn it off or don’t listen at all)
I wanted the youtube at the bottom of the post–LOL more mercy needed here folks!

Mercy. That word is holy to me. I was thinking the other day about how precious our tears are to God…he keeps them in a bottle…and I wondered if they will prove we are made in God’s image. The enemy has no mercy or compassion…so no tears.
But our tears show our mercy and compassion. We are His beloved.
I love Mercy Said No by CeCe Winans almost as much as Alabaster Box.
Thanks for the comment on my blog and I think I have it where you can post now without your old blog address…
Take care, princess.
I love this song too, but alabaster box is my all time favorite!
twinkle- missed you girl!
Yay for mercy and do-overs! Love ya!
I don’t know Darla…why DO WE ever run to anything else? That question pierced me. It’s so easy to do isn’t it? But I DO know where my Hope, my Stability, my Future, my Love, my Mercy and my Grace always is – and I will always know where to run to and that HE will always embrace me!
Twinkle, I loved this…”they will prove we are made in God’s image. The enemy has no mercy or compassion…so no tears.
But our tears show our mercy and compassion.”
Wow – Beautiful! Thank you for that!
Wow… this was a powerful post for me. And I agree with Tam… why do we ever run to anything else!? Thanks for this post.
why am i not linking
baby you are linked!
i love all things CeCe! oh do I know what you mean!!
Amen, where would we be if Mercy hadn’t stepped in!
love you. 🙂
Love this girl. Just what I needed. Cece is one of my favorites and this song is wonderful. Mercy did say no and my favorite line is “When Heaven looks at me its through the eyes of Jesus” Amen!
