The worship leader on our Mexico trip played the following song.  I *knew* I had heard it before.  I was so sure it was a song by Steven Curtis Chapman.  I was wrong!  It’s by Nichole Nordeman and Charlie Peacock!

I was reminded of it tonight after an encouraging time at small group (God’s Anointed Servants, G.A.S.)!

My Ensenada, Mexico testimony will be up later tonight/tomorrow morning!

2. * Mercies New *
(by Nichole Nordeman and Charlie Peacock, ©2002 Ariose Music)
Is it fair to say I was lured away
by endless distractions and lovelier attractions then
Or fairer still, my own free will
Is the better one to blame for this familiar mess I’ve made

So I would understand if You were out of patience
And I would understand if I was out of chances

Your mercies are new every morning
So let me wake with the dawn
When the music is through, or so it seems to be
Let me sing a new song
Old things gone…
Every day it’s true, You make all Your mercies new

The distance left between east and west
Is how far You would go to forgive the debt I owe
And thrown into the sea the wicked ways in me
Will never have a chance to wash back on the sand

So I would understand if You would make me pay
And I would understand lying in the bed I made again…

Up comes the sun on everyone of us
Gone, gone, gone the guilt and shame that knew Your name
