Strong Enough

I've heard the phrase, "The Lord works in mysterious ways" all my life.   I don't think it's in the Bible, but there may be something similar from wence it came.  Today's posting is just the lyrics of a song I heard driving home.  It's called Strong Enough and it's by Matthew West.  You can catch a portion of it if you YouTube it, but no one has yet to make a video using it.

I hope Matthew won't mind me using the words in the blog.  But, the song spoke to me.

Strong Enough from Story of My Life, Copyright 2010

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 strong 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.
