Where I Find My Strength

When my Mom goes for her tests I have her very own playlist loaded on my ipod so she doesn't have to lay there silently. Just recently she asked me if I had the song "Everything Falls" by Fee. I did not, so I purchased it and I loaded it onto my ipod. Not thinking much more about it the days went by. Then just a day or two ago, I was driving and that song I had downloaded came up on my playlist while I was driving. I understood why my Mom wanted it. I listened to the words and just cried. I kept it on repeat. I have found great strength and comfort from the words.

Here are the lyrics:
You said
You'd never leave or forsake me
When you said,
This life is gonna shake me
You said
This world is gonna bring trouble on my soul
This I know
Chorus:
When everything falls apart
Your arms hold me together
When everything falls apart
You're the only hope for this heart
When everything falls apart
And my strength is gone
I find you mighty and strong
You keep holding on
You keep holding on
When I see
Darkness all around me
When I see
The tragedy has found me
I still believe
Your faithful arms will never let me go
And still I know
Chorus:
When everything falls apart
Your arms hold me together
When everything falls apart
You're the only hope for this heart
When everything falls apart
And my strength is gone
I find you mighty and strong
You keep holding on
You keep holding on
Sorrow will last for the night
But hope is rising with the sun
(It's rising with the sun)
There will be storms in this life
But I know you will overcome
But I know you will overcome
Chorus:
When everything falls apart
Your arms hold me together
When everything falls apart
You're the only hope for this heart
When everything falls apart
And my strength is gone
I find you mighty and strong
You keep holding on
You keep holding on







I have had some days, especially lately that I really have felt that my world was falling apart, but I'm so thankful that I have a God that is bigger than anything I could ever go through!! All I have to do is bring it to Him!! All I have to do is cling to Him and He will be my strength, how awesome is that!!!
Psalm 28:7 says, "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song."
and
John 16:33 says, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
I do not know what tomorrow holds. I do know that this will not be the last hard time I will go through. But I am so thankful that I have a Heavenly Father that I can turn to because I know that He will carry me through!!





Please have a listen to Fee's "Everything Falls" (there are also many wonderful verses in this video)

Oh Donna, what a wonderful post about the Love of the Lord. He carries us through EVERYTHING. He will never leave us or forsake us. He carries us, I know because He's carrying me right now and has been over the past year more than ever. Praying for you! So glad you found a song of comfort.

Love,
Anastasia

Donna, what a beautiful post. We would all be so lost without our Lord. I had never heard of the group Fee before reading about it here. This song says it all! Praying for you and your mom.
