The following song is one that I have listened to more times than I can count. But today, for some "odd" reason when it came one the radio, I listened to it differently. I didn't listen to it from my own perspective. I listened to it from my Grandfather's perspective. It's called "Strong Enough" by Matthew West.
I can't help but wonder if this may also be the cry of his heart as well......
When I come at it from my perspective, the lyrics : "Lord right now I'm asking you to be Strong enough, Strong enough, For the both of us" mean strong enough both me and God. But when I listen to it thinking of my Granddad, it would sound more like for both him and my Grandmother.
Perspective is a funny thing.
This has been a favorite song of mine for a while (I have a few). But coming at from another perspective, changes it.
Lord, I'm asking you, help us all be "Strong Enough" right now.... for him, for her, for all of us. Hands of Mercy cover us. Cover him. Cover her.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
