On the Radio

My ‘commute’ to work is about three and a half to five minutes, depending on traffic, and recently, sewer reconstruction has disrupted my usual route.  To pass the time I listen to the radio; both to and from work today, the song Strong Enough was playing.  This afternoon, it was followed by Stand in the Rain.

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 Cause I’m broken
Down to nothing
But I’m still holding on to the one thing
You are God and you are strong
When I am weak I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be Strong enough
Strong enough

She never slows down.
She doesn’t know why but she knows that when she’s all alone, feels like it’s all coming down
She won’t turn around
The shadows are long and she fears if she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down
So stand in the rain Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain You won’t drown
And one day, what’s lost can be found
You stand in the rain
She won’t make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself and the fears whispering if she stands she’ll fall down
She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything she’s running from wants to give up and lie down.
