Who We Are To Be – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Who We Are To Be – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

The battle is the building
The thing that makes us
Who we are to be
Hard pressed
Yet never left to be crushed
Perplexed
Still comforted before despair
Persecuted
Never yet are we alone
Struck down
Still He won’t let them destroy us
Yet we are built
Made to be
Just who we are meant to be
Through the battle
In the trial
Yet never alone

Seasons Change – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Lord, I heard You today
Through the words of another
As I opened my voice
Let free my soul
To a child of Your kingdom
Now I understand
Once again
The pressures I feel
The squeeze and the crush
Leaving me cold and empty
It’s all but a moment in time
But still I’m not alone
Not destroyed
But to be shaped by the challenge
For moments to come
Prepared for my own tests
And the trials of others
I understand it’s just a season
And I see the pattern shift
A time is coming
It’s already upon the horizon
When I will taste the free air
Breathing freely once again
For now I’m holding on
As tightly as I can to You
With a renewed hope
Now I’ve heard Your voice

At Our Side (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

At Our Side (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Pressure from every angle
A life hard pressed from every side
No one said it would ever be easy
Yet we are never crushed
Because the Father is at our side

Our minds confused by their actions
Perplexed at the words they cast
In our despair we feel so lonely
Yet we will never be destroyed
While we have the Father at our side

From The Pain

From The Pain (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Where do I move
Where can I turn
Hurt closes in
From every side
My body it writhes
Pain infests the bones
It craves for the poison
It thrived on for so long
Can’t take any more
This spirit is crushed
Can I give in?

Yet I’m not abandoned
I’m not here alone
The hands they are reaching
Bringers of comfort
Light of my hope
This pain it subsides
Victory is mine
The soul it stands
Free not destroyed
So now I rise
Free from addictions
With the Father I now walk

Verse of the Day – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

2 Corinthians 4:8-9

2 Corinthians 4:8-9

At some point I’ve felt all of these, but never abandoned or destroyed through His grace, He has been there to pick up the piece and fix me.

FIX YOU by COLDPLAY
When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I…

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I…

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
