My Weakness: His Strength

January 14, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Talking to a friend the other day about depression and weakness. I could sense he was not used to being in a position of such weakness.  I tried to show him that being shown his weakness is a great gift.  It was always there anyway! So, why not let God use it.  Here are some lyrics to a song by Jason Gray, called “Weak” from his album All The Lovely Losers.

All the Lovely Losers

All the Lovely Losers

I also like his song grace off of this album.  His music works for me.

I was afraid to be weak
Afraid to be me
I was afraid
Because I didn’t want them to see
What’s broken in me

But I guess I was wrong
I should’ve known all along
When I’m weak You are strong in me

You make up what I lack
You shine through the cracks
Where I was shattered
Because You pour out Your grace
Through my broken places

CHORUS

So I won’t be afraid to cry
To confess or question why
I won’t hide the pain I feel
Now I know these wounds are how you heal
No I won’t be afraid to cry
I don’t want to live a lie
They will see Your love is real
When I let You use my wounds to heal
These wounds are how You heal
You can use these wounds to heal

If they’re afraid I stand too tall
They’ll tear down the bridges and build a wall
But if they see I stumble the walls may crumble down

I was wrong
I don’t have to be strong
I didn’t want to believe
But now I finally see
My deepest point of need
Is the better part of me
`Cause when I’m weak You are strong in me
