Fighter Verses

I thought I’d share something tonight that has been a valuable tool for months now. Fighter Verses. (see their website below) {and this is not an advertisement}

At my house, we have a family Bible time every morning around eight, in which we pray, and memorize catechism and Bible verses. Although we have gone with Fighter Verses for years now, my dad informed us that there was a Fighter Verse app (he knows these things). It turns out that included with the app are Fighter Verse songs. (they are also on the website)

Songs. 🙂

If something is put to music, my whole family, even the three year old, can memorize it pretty easily. These songs have opened up a whole new world for me since January.  They have made Scripture memorization so much easier for me and my family. I can now recite or sing two whole Psalms!

No, I’m not advertising. If I was, I wouldn’t say this. They are definitely….creative. They aren’t rock songs or even really the style of popular Christian music. But they work, I tell you. Yes, indeed. If it helps me hide God’s Word in my heart, hearing the same song for Psalm 103 over and over and over again is worth it.  (link includes this week’s verse)



Random Musings of Melody

I’ve been thinking.
I’ve been known to do that.
I’ve been known to do that…a lot
I’ve been known to call it pondering

Perhaps I’ll try this “blogging” gig again.

I’ll still go by Melody, instead of Mercy
I’ll probably still post things on Anna and Karen’s blog
Perhaps it’s time to get personal
To create something
To jump in with both feet

Maybe I should try again
Maybe it’s worth doing
Maybe it’ll be fun

Metamorphosis (love that word)

Why not?

Why not get personal?
Why not try?

In the hopes that someone, somewhere, will want to read what I have to say.

Even though I am far from the best blogger
The best Singer
The best Writer
The best Christian
The best…anything
But I’m me
I’m Melody

And that’s fine with me

More to come soon!

Have a wonderfulicious night!


DON’T READ THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!

HA! Gotcha! 🙂

Anywho, this is actually veeeerrryyyyyyyyy important. I have decided to merge blogs with my good friends, Anna and Karen, since our blogs both have similar purposes and visions. You can find me blogging at (Anna and Karen changed their blog’s web address). I am now called “Melody” instead of “Mercy”, for a stronger connection with my old blog’s vision.

I shall leave this blog online and not delete it. I’ll redirect you again, K?

I hope to see you over there!



The Unborn

The Unborn
By: Kate Weber
Before my first smile,

My mother thought

I wasn’t worthwhile.


Before my first breath,

A burden to the world

That resulted in death.


I had a life,

God had a plan,

That Satan spoiled,

Through deeds of man.


I will never love,

Before I’m born,

With Him above.


Never dream,

Never sleep,

Never walk,

Never scream,

Never talk,

Never laugh,

Never cry,

Never wipe a tear-stained eye.


I will never be,

If I am not helped

One single request,

My only plea,

Is for you to help,

Please, Save me!

Learn the TRUTH about abortion at

Sadly, this is true. America is a country that has legalized the murder of unborn children. Please visit the website to find out more.
Thanks for posting this, MK.



I know, I know….I haven’t blogged for a long time, and, so it seems, I actually have an explanation.


Before I write a full post on the subject, I would like your opinion, small amount of readers.

When you see that word, what does it mean to you? Love or hate? Wish you had it?




Thank you to all you sweet friends who commented on my first post. You really got me going. Without you, this girl would never have started blogging in the first place. Thank you! 🙂

I feel obligated to post some links. Here are my awesome friends! (I shall most likely sometimes post things based on ideas from them. They make me think. 🙂 )

*yawn* after a day filled with babysitting and random fun, I’m ready for bed.

Also, God is good. Yes indeedy.

What was your day like?




Hello, readers! My name <read: nickname> is Mercy. This is my “journal”, for lack of a better word, about my thoughts on life. May it bring glory to God.

“Why “Mercy”?” You might ask. “Never heard of that name.”

According to Wikipedia, “mercy” means price paid, or wages. In other words, bought. I was bought.

I was bought from slavery to sin. I wasn’t free. I was bought from a punishment I deserved. I was hopelessly apart from God, the meaning of life. I was bought.  I was paid for…by the son of God’s innocent, perfect blood. How He loves! It was nothing I ever did or could do. He loves me because He IS love. I was made for His glory, and I want to live like it.

Will you join me?
