Why This Blog?

"His steadfast love never ceases." Music to my ears. And oh how I need it. I am continually amazed at how the Lord has been faithful and "full" of mercies in my life..

When I started this blog, I never thought that my journey would have so many twists and turns...joys and heartaches along the way.  I definitely never thought that divorce would be part of my story.  But what God has been speaking to my heart lately is...."your story didn't END in's just PART of the story...and there is more to tell."  So I would be remiss to stop blogging now.  I HAVE A STORY!  YOU have a story!  And no matter how messed up our stories our, God uses them to encourage others.

I almost started a new blog all together, but for some reason I just couldn't let this [New Mercies 4 U!] go.  To start all over seemed like I was ashamed of something or that I was trying to pretend I'm something I am NOT.   It's time to let God build on what is already here.

The reason I decided to start this blog years ago was to remind myself that God fills in the gaps in my life. No matter how much I try to be the "perfect mom" the "perfect wife" or the "perfect friend," I fail royally. But you know what? God knew I would mess up and He allotted just enough mercies for that particular day. And I receive new ones the next day.

I don't want this blog to be about me.  I want it to be about pointing you to Jesus. My story will be splashed here and there but only for the purpose of encouraging you.  I really don't want this to be a blog about my opinions.  I want it to be about truth! If I ever get off the path, PLEASE let me know.   

Greek--"Mercies"--- Eleeo
-to help the afflicted and bring help to the wretched.

My prayer is that this would be a place you can be encouraged and championed to pursue the Lord with abandon knowing that you have mercies afresh every morning!

This blog will be about a little bit of everything...
  • Encouragement from the Word
  • Healthy Living
  • Decorating
  • Travel
  • Cooking
  • Women's issues
  • [You name it]
The goal is to make it all encompassing, incorporating Spiritual, Physical, Mental and Emotional topics [the 4 in "New Mercies 4 U"] And who knows, Craig might even be a guest every now and then. :)

Please share any ideas or stories or prayer request with me as well. I would be honored to pray for you! May we walk alongside each other willing to appeal, beg, beseech on one another's behalf.
