Please Be My Strength

I’ve tried to stand my ground
I’ve tried to understand
but I can’t seem to find my faith again

like water on the sand
or grasping at the wind
I keep on falling short

please be my strength
please be my strength
Cuz I don’t have anymore
I don’t have anymore

How many times do I try to do too much under my own strength? I have said yes to too many things. I’ve had something happen that showed me my own imperfections. I let my life get away from me again, feeling like I had everything under control. Before I knew it I was looking in the mirror and wondering how I got here. How did I get so off track? I made one step to the left or to the right and before I knew it I was in the forest of uncertainty. Before I knew it I was lost and confused. I felt so alone. For a time, I just wandered around, lost. But then I remembered who I was and whose I was.

I’m looking for a place
that I can plant my faith
one thing I know for sure

I cannot create it
I cannot sustain it
It’s Your love that’s keeping me

Please be my strength…

I remembered where my strength comes from. I remembered that I can say to this mountain, “Move!” and it will. (Mark 11:23) I look to the hills, where does my help come from? It comes from the Lord. I remembered that Faith can move mountains, but doubt can create them. What mountains am I creating by not trusting in God’s goodness?

at my final breath
I hope that I can say
I’ve fought the good fight of faith

I pray your glory shines
through this doubting heart of mine
so my world would know that You

“Faith can move mountains, but doubt can create them”

You are my strength
You and You alone
You and You alone
Keep bringing me back home

I’m coming back to where my strength is. I’m looking away from the things of this world and up to the heavens. I know where my strength is.

Love, Semalee

Turn it over to him through prayer and action. Lean on me he said. Always there even if we don’t see him. Faith and works go hand in hand.
