Song: “You are My Strength”

I’ve been listening to this song that our college band played tonight at the Bible study–“You are My Strength” by Hillsong (from their album, Saviour King):

You are my strength
Strength like no other
Strength like no other
Reaches to me

You are my hope
Hope like no other
Hope like no other
Reaches to me

In the fullness of Your grace
In the power of Your Name
You lift me up
You lift me up

Unfailing love
Stronger than mountains
Deeper than oceans
Reaches to me

Your love O Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness
Reaches to the skies

I think I’ll be playing this song for about a good week! (As some of you know, when I get hooked on a song, I play it over and over again, I put it on one-song repeat on all my devices!)

This song expresses exactly what I’m feeling, especially in the midst of ministry burdens: I need strength, strength like no other…and it’s the strength that only God can provide to those who are weak. I need hope, hope like no other…and because of Jesus, I can have hope even in times of despair. This song is really ministering to me (I’m already on my 12th time listening on repeat)… That’s right–God’s strength, hope, and love reaches down to me because He loves me! What can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord? Nothing! Nothing is able to separate us from the love of God and because of that, I am lifted up once again.
