FAITH

Strong Enough

 

After worship night and Purple People Leaders’ Camp, God has been speaking to me in great and many ways, some through His people (namely, Kuya Chris and Kuya Sky, thank God for leaders like you ^.^). He’s not looking at my past but at my future, His destiny for me. He doesn’t care what I’ve said and done. He’s strong enough especially now that I’m weak. He’s breaking me, pouring me out and starting again…and during the process, I get to know my Potter more and more…I now love being a jar of clay.

Can I just say that this season is way way difficult? A lot of things happened in my life and I dare not say that they are easy…I’ve made mistakes that God knows really hurt me and the people around me…they’re so many and so heavy that all I can do is cry out to Him…I didn’t know what else to do and for that single right decision I did…I realized great and wonderful things about Him…things that I couldn’t have learned if He didn’t break me…so here it goes…the song that kept playing in my head (and dare I say, my heart. This song plays alongside “Full of Grace” and “I will remember you” by Sarah Maclachlan a.k.a. Soundtrack ng Buhay ni Joei, hehe)…Stacie Orrico’s Strong Enough

As I rest against this cold hard wall, will you pass me by?
Will you criticize me as I sit and cry?
I had fought so hard and thought that all my battles had been won
Only to find the war had just begun

Is He not strong enough?
Is He not pure enough?
To break me, pour me out and start again?
Is He not brave enough?
To take one chance with me
Please can I have one chance to start again

Will my weakness fall and and now make me suffer for a lifetime?
Is there any way to be made whole again
If I be renewed and find forgiveness by the strength I’ve never had
Will my scars forever ruin all God’s plans?

Is He not strong enough?
Is He not pure enough?
To break me, pour me out and start again?
Is He not brave enough?
To take one chance with me
Please can I have one chance to start again

He took my life into His hands
And turned it all around
In my most desperate circumstance, is where I’m finally found

That You are strong enough
That You are pure enough
To break me, pour me out and start again
That You are brave enough
To take one chance on me,
Oh thank You for my chance to start again
