My Strength

My Strength

by Marcus Mikhail

If God is for me who can be against me?
I know I can trust Him in every difficulty
With life and all its ups and downs,
I rely on Him and His strength through all my hours

Life is hard; I need to be tough
But God makes it easier with His love
Nothing will phase me; nothing will make me cease living,
Because I continue in the Lord and never stop striving

Times can be awful and it feels like He’s not there,
But I trust in His promises that show His unconditional care
They say life is a merry go round with its ups and downs and sometimes round and round
With God, all I see is that His grace does truly abound

I pray, Lord, that You continue to help me fight in this life
And look towards my eternal destination, free from trouble and strife
I can’t wait for that day; I can’t wait to finally be with You
Oh dear, Lord, how I thank You that I know this to be true!

You died for me on the Cross and forgave me of my sin
You consumed it with holy fire and threw it all in the bin
You took my place; I should have been the one that died,
But it was You who took the beatings and the shame, and made the church Your bride

I am convinced that nothing can separate us from the Love of God (Romans 8:38-39)
It gives me such peace to know that His love is so broad
He know the plans He has for me, plans to prosper and not to harm (Jeremiah 29:11)
What have I to fear, why should I be in alarm?

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call in Truth (Psalm 145:18)
Especially now in my youth I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13)
He has won my battle and granted me victory And we know that God works to the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28)
This is true encouragement when life is dim

Cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7)
He’ll be with us always till this life is through
My peace I leave with you not as the world gives to you (John 14:27)
I find it hard to believe people try to get through life in all the things they do

I have swept away your offences like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist (Isaiah 44:22)
Oh the joy of knowing that your greatness is so Bliss!
His word is so rich no other book has such power You can get relief when life gets sour
I thank my God, my Lord, my Rock For helping me through the storms, and it wasn’t just by luck
