Strong Enough?

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that we all suffer times when we feel alone, even though in reality, we are not.

I realize that my strength to survive trials in life does not come from within me.  It comes from my Lord, Jesus Christ, who lifts me up, encourages me, and provides for my every need.  Just as He does, you.

Here is a Youtube link to a song I came across recently.  It seems to reflect how I feel about life.  It is entitled Strong Enough, by Matthew West:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FYDcvY2lfI  Here are the lyrics:

Strong Enough - Matthew West

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 stong 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 stong enough
 Hands of mercy won't you cover me
 Lord right now I'm asking you to be
 Strong enough
 Strong enough
 Strong enough


I cannot make it, alone.  I need Jesus... and am glad He is in my life!


Please don't think that I am complaining, for I am not. I am not looking for pity, or for anyone to feel sorry for me. That's not my intention.

The reason I am writing about this, is so that you, my friend, can see that you are not alone.   You may be going through a trial in your life, that you feel you just cannot handle.  Please understand that I am not strong enough, nor are you strong enough, to make it through this life, alone.

If this is the case, please know that you are not alone.  Jesus is here for you, too!

He's a friend that sticketh closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).  He also promised to never leave you, nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).

So friend, don't ever feel you are alone.  The truth is, you're not!


Until next time...
