My Strength Alone

My strength alone cannot compare
With power God gives to me through prayer.
I draw fresh power both day and night
To walk by faith and not by sight.

My batteries need charging, Lord;
My power’s running low.
My will is bending to itself;
Without You, I can’t go.

My charge has drained since my last prayer
While doing what I would.
Lord, plug me in and fill me up.
Help me do what I should.

My batteries need charging, Lord;
My power’s running low.
My will is bending to itself;
Without You, I can’t go.

About This Song:
God gives each of His beloved human beings a certain amount of physical and mental strength, and some people have more than others. He expects us to use the resources He’s provided us with.

But our resources are limited. Sometimes they run out.

I can’t speak for you, but all too often I don’t have enough strength to face the daily challenges of life on my own. “My Strength Alone” isn’t good enough.

I find that praying for God’s help is like plugging a battery charger into an outlet in order to give run-down batteries a fresh charge. To return them to useful condition. In effect, to give them new life.

Do you find yourself running out of strength sometimes? Are you having difficulties keeping up with the demands of life?

Plug into God’s unlimited resources and let Him provide the strength you need.
