"Strong Enough" as written by Brian S. Macleod, Sheryl Crow, Kevin Gilbert, David Jeffrey Ricketts, Bill Bottrell and David Francis Baerwald....
As I rest against this cold, hard wall
Will you pass me by?
Will you criticize me as I sit and cry?
I had fought so hard and thought that all my battles had been won
Only to find the war has just begun

Is He not strong enough?
Is He not pure enough?
To break me, pour me out, and start again
Is He not brave enough?
To take one chance on me
Please can I have one chance to start again?

Will my weakness for an hour make me suffer for a lifetime?
Is there any way to be made whole again?
If I'm healed, renewed and find forgiveness and find the strength I've never had
Will my scars forever ruin all God's plan?

Is He not strong enough?
Is He not pure enough?
To break me, pour me out, and start again
Is He not brave enough?
To take one chance on me
Please can I have one chance to start again?

He took my life into his hands and turned it all around
In my most desperate circumstance
It's there I finally found

That You are strong enough
That You are pure enough
To break me, pour me out and start again
That You are brave enough
To take one chance on me
Oh Thank You for my chance to start again

    General CommentAhh, this song. This song has great meaning to me personally. I mean the basic meaning of the song is that no matter what your troubles are, Jesus Christ is going to be there to help you and he is always strong enough for everything. :) Thanks Jesus! :D

    General CommentI haven't actually heard a lot of Stacie Orrico songs but I will most defnitely be download lots more. This song sounds very nice, and the poster above is correct, God is always there and for as long as we want him in our lives.

    General CommentOMG! when I first heard this song I was sitting against my wall crying about how sorry my life is, listening to my Staci Orrico, and thinking "Look at me God, Im pathetic, I thought everything was going great, and now all this crap snuck in. What am I gonna do?" Then this song came on and it described everything I was feeling and even doing at the time, and I started bawling my eyes out realizing had just spoke to me.

    General CommentThis is a powerful song. To me this is her relationship with God. She has gone off her path so badly that she cannot see her way back. She's afraid and questions if God is powerful enough to forgive her for the things she's done and to re create her into a whole person again.
    Will my weakness for an hour
    Make me suffer for a life time
    Is there anyway to be made whole again?
    If I'm healed, renewed and find forgiveness
    Find the strength I've never had
    Will my scars ruin all God's plan?

    This part means the most to me.... Will she ultimately be forgiven for the things she's done, and even if she is renewed and starts a new life, can she still be apart of God's plan? She's questioning her worthiness...as we all should.

    General CommentShe doesn't know if God will be able to help her, but then she finds out that he will. Beautiful message.
    "He took my life into his hands and turned it all around
    In my most desperate circumstance
    It's there I finally found"

    "That You are strong enough
    That You are pure enough
    To break me, pour me out and start again
    That You are brave enough
    To take one chance on me
    Oh thank You for my chance to start again"

    Best part in the entire song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love it.
