Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Strong Enough

November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month. I hope to post some more information and links to some epilepsy websites for you this month and hopefully post the video from the interview I did recently in New York for Women Succeeding with Epilepsy.

I thought this song by Matthew West was appropriate for how I feel sometimes when Spencer's seizures are out of control. Whatever your circumstance, know that He is strong enough for both of you.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

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

Hope you have a blessed weekend!

I absolutely can relate to how you feel when physical conditions seem out of control. Great song and my favorite Scripture. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

I remember when our son had seizures and also spent days in an oxygen tent. It was during one of those times I hit rock bottom and that's when I started looking up and reaching out to Him, the One and Only Savior. He saw me through the rough times.
This is a wonderful song.

I've not heard that song before. Very good words. Thank you for letting me participate.

Things have been tough for my family recently and I have to keep reminding myself that nothing has happened that hasn't first gone through the hand of God. So there must be a reason. Somehow that keeps me focused and brings me back every time to "Do I trust God or not?" Today I choose to trust Him.

Beautiful song! It speaks volumes for a lot of us and probably for your son too.
Thanks for sharing it with us!

I echo this song's lyrics. Such humility!

I don't think I've heard this song before. Our son is a childhood leukemia SURVIVOR! I know there is NO WAY I would have made it through without the Lord by my side!

Thanks for the linky. Hope your having a great Sunday!
