Strong Enough

I've had the lyrics to an old Stacie Orrico song stuck in my head for the past few days, and thought I'd share:

"Will my weakness for an hour make me suffer for a lifetime?
Is there anyway to be made whole again?
If I'm healed, renewed, and find forgiveness, find the strength I've never had
Will my scars forever ruin all God's plans?

Is He not strong enough? Is He not pure enough?
To break me, pour me out and start again?
Is He not brave enough to take one chance on me?
Oh can I have the chance to start again?"

This song is one of a very short list of songs that can bring me to tears. The words always pop up in my head, every now and again. I struggle with a never-ending battle of control. Control to do things my way, in my time. And every time my plans fail, I wonder why. These words remind me of the amazing grace of God. My favorite part is 'Will my scars forever ruin all God's plans?' I'm so thankful that God is bigger than any trouble of mine. That I can come, broken and shattered, and still be used for His purpose. That every day, I get the chance to start again.

Wow, seems like we have a lot in common. :) I also struggle with control, and love to have a plan for everything. Gives me the feeling(ahem...false illusion) of control. I really enjoyed reading this post. I look forward to reading more!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
