Through Mercy

“For the king trusts in the LORD,
And through the mercy of the Most High
he shall not be moved.”  Psalm 21:7

What a blessing to be weighed down by His mercy, unable to move away.

Lord, please teach me more of what You desire to do through mercy today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Weight of Mercy

source –

I cannot move
away from You
I just have
to stay.

There is no
reason to
that Your love and mercy
can’t out weigh.

  1. I LOVE this concept, Sis Deb–His mercy weighing on me in a good way, so that I can’t move (“settle, settle”). Wonderful encouraging word of His great love for us! God bless you Big, as you walk and ride through Tremendous Tuesday–love, sis Caddo Delight

  2. I hoped I wasn’t too far out there with this one! Thank you for understanding what I was thinking and trying to say! Love you and God bless you, as He settles you right next to Him! hugs!

  3. “Weighed down by His mercy” – what a wonderful image. Held securely by Him… The true meaning of freedom!
    Thanks again and God bless, Debbie.

  4. To be weighed down…anchored to mercy.

    I just love to think on that!


  5. “…I cannot move
    away from You
    I just have
    to stay…”

    I like the word picture in these words because it explains the magnetic power of our love for God. We have to stay.

    Grrrrreat poem, as usual. (The extra r’s are my way of revealing the morning temps in Northern Illinois, a million miles from you and Aub.)

  6. Our spiritual foundations, security and peace all come as acts of mercy from our Lord. What would we do without Him?

  7. Love your poem today. to do through mercy… I need to contemplate that today.

  8. our god is an awesome god!

  9. Nothing beats mercy for mercy look down and said YES and Oh boy I for one am so glad…He looked beyond my faults and said she’s worth it

  10. Definitely not a weight too heavy to carry.

  11. I see that we’ve both been thinking about his mercy, today! I love how you said that there is nothing that his mercy and love cannot out weigh! What a gracious God we adore!
    Blessings ~ Wendy
