After I hit publish on my last post, I ran out the door to pick up Paul from work, just like I do every day.
As I was driving, Strong Enough by Matthew West came on the radio.
I’m not going to lie and say it pulled me out of this emotional pit I’ve fallen into. Or that it suddenly made me feel like everything is going to be okay. Or even that it prevented me from almost bursting into tears in the middle of a crowded grocery store not thirty minutes later, as I told Paul all the things I wrote on my blog today.
But, at least for those four minutes and three seconds, it did make me feel like even though I meant to blog as though no one was reading, He heard me.
And for that I’m thankful.
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
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
Cause I’m broken down to nothing
But I’m still holding onto 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
I don’t have to be
