Lyrical Friday - Please Be My Strength

Hi Friends!
This past Sunday I had the honor of worshipping with Gungor Band live. It was awesome, beyond words. Definitely a worship experience. Go to their website and find out when they are playing in your city/state. You'll thank me.

Please be my Strength is one of those songs that cuts deep into fears. It serves as a reminder to me that God is my strength. I cannot create such strength nor can I sustain my futile strength- only God and God alone can create it and sustain it. I pray that this song may serve you as a reminder, an anthem to stand firm on. God is your strength. With Christ you can and will overcome your fears, your affliction and regain faith, passion and strength. He can give you strength where there is none and bless you with peace.

Unless your faith is firm, You cannot stand firm. Isaiah 7:9b
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him. Psalm 28:7
But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;
He is their strength in the time of trouble. Psalm 37:39
My flesh and my heart fail;But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:6

Please be my Strength, Gungor Band

I've tried to stand my ground
I've tried to understand
but I can't seem to find my way
like water on the sand
or grasping at the wind
I keep on falling short

please be my strength
please be my strength
I don't have anymore
I don't have anymore

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 (captured) me

Please be my strength...

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

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