This is gonna make you STRONGER!

Friday, April 01, 2011

I heard a new song on my Christian radio station this week. It is talking about the problems of life, but it seemed so appropriate as I train for my first triathlon and the fears I have about the Open Water Swim. Here's the chorus:

When the waves are taking you under
Hold on just a little bit longer
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger
The pain ain't gonna last forever
And things can only get better
Believe me
This is gonna make you stronger
Gonna make you stronger, stronger, stronger
Believe me, this is gonna make you ...

Those words just really spoke to me!

And, here's one of the verses:

Try and do the best you can
Hold on and let Him hold your hand
And go on and fall into the arms of Jesus
Oh, lift your head it's gonna end
God's right there
Even when you just can't feel Him
I promise you that He still cares

Love it!!! This is definitely going on my iPod and is now my "Theme Song". emoticon

    Great song!! I love it too, when a song comes on that speaks straight to what you are experiencing. Thanks for sharing the lyrics, they are very powerful! My mud run posted the course map and it has pipes-my biggest fear!! I'm mildly claustrophobic and am afraid of my big hips getting stuck-lol! But, I won't let the pipes keep me from doing the race, I'll cross that bridge when I get there :). I'll try to remember these lyrics when I do :).
