Strong Enough

The song "Strong Enough" by Matthew West has been on the radio every time I get in the car recently. I usually turn it up and belt out the words, through tears in my eyes.
The first scripture that comes to mind with this song is from 2 Corinthians 12:9 " But He said to me "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest in me." 

I would describe this phase of my life as a "valley" I am not saying that everything is going wrong, but we are struggling with the one thing we want the most, and maybe this is the reason as to why little problems seem so much larger. I am not strong enough on my own or with the support from Monroe, family and friends. I have to find my strength in the Lord and trust that He WILL provide me that strength to get through whatever trails I face. 

I just really love the words to this song and in a way it put my feelings and my prayers to the Lord into a song. I  pray daily and I know that Monroe prays the same prayer for me, for strength and courage. I need to add the prayer of  really looking up and totally getting all my strength from the Lord. 

Hope this song provides some encouragement to others! We aren't strong enough, we have to get our strength from the Lord.

Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Isaiah 40:29 "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak."


  1. Thanks for this -- exactly what I needed to hear right now, too.

  2. I love that song! Several months ago I listened to it several times a day.
    We are looking forward to seeing you guys soon!

  3. I love this song as well! Thanks for sharing it! I'm praying for your little miracle!

  4. Hi, I just found your blog through Kelly's Korner. I am in Austin not Dallas, but I love finding other Texas bloggers.

    I love your post and it caused me to read through some of your last few posts. I will be praying for you as you travel this road of infertility. My husband and I have been trying to have a family for almost 3 years now. It is a VERY tough journey. I want nothing more than to have a family with my husband. I feel like God created me to be a mother...I have never wanted anything more. It is tough and some days are harder than others but I know that He is good. I don't know why we are faced with these struggles but I know that God is asking us to steward our stories well. To trust Him, to find hope and peace in the fact His plan is perfect, and to look to Him and be refined.

    Best of luck to you as you work towards your family! XOXO

  5. Stopping by Kelly's Korner and I'm from the DFW area too. Just reading some posts through your blog and I'm sorry you are struggling with infertility. My husband and I struggled for 2 years and I don't wish it on anyone. I also have PCOS. Looking forward to reading more and praying for a miracle baby for you!


I would love to hear from you! I read each and every comment and they make my day!
