We Are Not As Strong As We Think We Are.

Title: Rich Mullins - We Are Not As Strong As We Think We Are lyrics


Well, it took the hand of God Almighty
To part the waters of the sea
But it only took one little lie
To separate you and me
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

And they say that one day Joshua Made the sun stand still in the sky
But I can't even keep these thoughts of you from passing by
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

We are frail, we are fearfully and wonderfully made
Forged in the fires of human passion
Choking on the fumes of selfish rage
And with these our hells and our heavens
So few inches apart
We must be awfully small
And not as strong as we think we are

And the Master said their faith was
Gonna make them mountains move
But me, I tremble like a hill on a fault line
Just at the thought of how I lost you
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

We are frail, we are fearfully and wonderfully made
Forged in the fires of human passion
Choking on the fumes of selfish rage
And with these our hells and our heavens
So few inches apart
We must be awfully small
And not as strong as we think we are

And if you make me laugh
I know I could make you like me
'Cause when I laugh I can be a lot of fun
But we can't do that I know that it is frightening
What I don't know is why we can't hold on
We can't hold on.

It took the hand of God AlmightyTo part the waters of the sea
But it only took one little lie
To separate you and me
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are
When you love you walk on the waterJ
ust don't stumble on the waves
We all want to go there somethin' awful
But to stand there it takes some grace

We sang this song on Sunday, and it has been in my head all week.

Today I really feel that I am not strong. My job runs out in four weeks and I don't have a permanent job yet. I have and interview tomorrow, but it is in the hospital. I have not been in the hospital in 7 years. I feel intimidated by the thought of being on the floor again. (something I said I would never do, was work on the floor again) Robert doesn't have a job yet, and neither does Drew. And, Drew lost his keys this afternoon. Which makes me nervous, because he was cleaning out our cars on the side of the building, and we cannot find them anywhere. The question is did he lose them or did someone see an opportunity and pick them up? So, we may wake up tomorrow with our cars gone. And there are house keys and shop keys on the key chain as well. (Robert is out buying new locks for the house and shop as I type this.) So, today I am feeling overwhelmed, tearful and weak. Even riding my bike has been a total chore this week. I am not as strong as I think I am.

I differ. I think you are so much stronger than even you think you are. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!!!! However I did love the lyrics to the song. I've never heard it before, but will now go and find it! :)
