ABC Scripture Challenge - 'C'


When I read the post from Patter's ABC Scripture Challenge, I was excited to see the word Confidence.  When I think of the word confidence I think of being bold and without fear.  Then I thought of one of my favorite songs, Mercy Seat. I love knowing that the grace of God allows me to confidently run to the throne of my God, my Lord, my Savior, without fear, and know that His blood will cover my healing.

So for the challenge this week I used Hebrews 4:16 "Let us then approach the throne of grace with CONFIDENCE so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." I cannot even begin to count the times I have run boldly to that throne!  I also included the lyrics to the song in my project and I am also including them at the bottom of this post.  If you have never heard this song, I challenge you to click here to listen.

The lyrics to the song on are on the inside.
I kept this one very simple because I want the focus of this to be the message of the verse and the song.  I used some older CTMH products (Emporium Creative Basics, Twilight & Cocoa Cardstock, Connections Stamp Set, Foundry Flourishes, Flowers and Cocoa Opaques)

Mercy Seat (Words by Don Moen)
In the darkness 
Where everything is unknown 
I face the power of sin on my own 
I did not know of a place I could go 
Where I could find a way to 
Heal my wounded soul. 

He said that I could come into 
His presence without fear 
Into the holy place where 
His mercy hovers near 

I'm runnin' I'm runnin' 
I'm runnin' to the mercy seat 
Where Jesus is callin' he said 
His grace would cover me 
His blood will flow freely 
It will provide the healin' 
Come runnin' to the mercy seat 
I'm runnin; to the mercy seat. 

Are you livin' where hope has not been? 
You're lost in the curse of a 
Lifetime of sin 
Lovely illusions they never 
Come true I know where there's a place 
Of mercy for you 
He said that you could come into his 
Presence without fear 
Into this holy place 
Where his presence hovers near. 

Come runnin' come runnin' 
Come runnin' to the mercy seat 
Where Jesus is callin' he said his 
Grace would cover you. His blood 
Will flow freely it will provide the healin' 
Come runnin' to the mercy seat 
I'm runnin' to the mercy seat 
He said that you could come into his presence 
Without fear into the holy place 
Where his mercy hovers near
