You delight in showing mercy | Amanda Cook

This video is a live rendition of a song “Mercy” by Amanda Cook from her “Brave New World” album. We’ve been singing this song at our church. I especially like this verse…

Oh love, great love

I will build my life upon Your love (Housefires)

Today is my birthday. I was introduced to this planet 61 years ago (on a Sunday). And like everybody else, spent the rest of my time trying to figure out why I’m here.

After about 45 years of wandering and trying everything else, including 20-something years of trying to be a “good Christian,” I finally found Love. Continue reading
