I dedicate this post to anyone who needs strength, who almost wants to give up in their life right now. Please hang on  and remember that God our Father in heaven loves us so much; He promised that He won’t leave us nor forsake us. Stay still and wait patiently for Him. Give it all to Jesus, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

This is a song I like from my Christian song collection. It’s called “Strong Enough” by Mathew West.

For so many years I had thought differently until I heard this song. I know the scripture says:

Philippians 4:13

I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me

What I don’t realize is that I don’t need to be strong enough to carry my cross because I have Jesus inside me who will carry it for me. He’s the one Who will give me strength, Who will walk with me, Who will help me to get through my trouble, difficulties, my sadness etc..

I don’t need to be strong enough because I’m not strong. I’m strong because of Him. He loves and cares for me deeply. The only thing I need to do is just surrender to Him and let Him work in me.  I love you Father and I know you love Suzana too.

 

Here’s the lyrics of the song:

You must
You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through

Well, forgive me
Forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

I know I’m not strong enough to be
everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up
I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough
For the both of us

Well, maybe
Maybe that’s the point
To reach the point of giving up

Cause when I’m finally
Finally at rock bottom
Well, that’s when I start looking up
And reaching out

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up I’m not stong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me

Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough
Cause I’m broken
Down to nothing
But I’m still holding on to the one thing
You are God and you are strong
When I am weak

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

Oh, yeah

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough
Strong enough

    1. I can’t help but be reminded of this awesome scripture in 2 Corinthians 12:9 – …”My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
