Posts Tagged ‘Strength’

It’s been a hectic week.  I can’t believe it’s the weekend already.  I started the week feeling overwhelmed, and now with everything that was accomplished this week, I actually feel a little bit ahead of the game in some areas. 

I posted about the power of prayer a couple of weeks ago, and here He is, showing me how very powerful our prayers are.  Even the little “God please help me!” prayers we cry out during the day are powerful.  Anytime we talk to God, it’s powerful because HE is powerful. 

On my own, at the beginning of this week, I was overwhelmed and ready to pull out my hair.  After stopping to pray and refocus, it was amazing how different my attitude was.  I even got the icicle lights out front working again and it only took me 5 minutes to figure out the problem. 

 After praying on Monday morning, God reminded me of the verese  “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” and “Faithful is He that calls you, who also will do it.”  I needed a reminder this week that it’s not all about me and what I can do, It’s all about God and what HE can do…..He even provided me with two new piano students that are starting in January! 

It’s amazing to me how I fail God over and over again by not trusting, not obeying, trying to do things in my own strength.  Time and time again, He gently reminds me that I need His strength, and time and time again, He blesses me when I finally obey.

Here is another one of my favorite songs.  This one is written by Mac Lynch and is published by the WILDS.  This song is such a reminder to me when I feel like things are falling apart, that it’s not me.  It’s not my strength that gets me through each day and each trial, it is only by His strength that I am able to make it through each day with a smile on my face and a kiss for Grace.  You can click here to hear this song.

He Is My Strength

Though the road ahead may be uncertain,
Though the path we travel be unknown,
Our God has given an assurance,
We can have peace, we can have joy, we can be strong.

He is our Strength, He is our Fortress,
We can be sure we are secure within His hand,
He is our Joy, our Hope of Life Eternal,
He is the Rock, the Solid Rock on which we stand.

Even when I cannot see tomorrow,
His Word is like a Lamp unto my feet,
and when the laughter turns to sorrow,
In His embrace, we find His grace when we are weak.

He is our Strength, He is our Fortress,
We can be sure we are secure within His hand,
He is our Joy, our Hope of Life Eternal,
He is the Rock, the Solid Rock on which we stand.

And when the storms of life surround me,
And when the winds of sorrow blow,
I will hold on to the Rock of Ages for I know, this one thing I know.

He is my strength, He is my fortress,
I can be sure I am secure within His hand,
He is my Joy, my Hope of Life Eternal,
He is the Rock, the Solid Rock on which I stand.

He is my Joy, my Hope of Life Eternal,
He is the Rock, the Solid Rock on which I stand.

He is the Solid Rock on which I stand.
