I”m Not As Strong As You Are . . .

im-not-as-strong-as-you-are-pic2-2016-12-29-at-8-22-31-amI’m not as strong as you are . . .
your words really hurt me
and when you say that
I’m blind and I can’t see—
I’m not as strong as you are . . .
your words really hurt me!
I’m not as strong as you are . . .
your words cut me deep
and when you say that
I’m stupid, I weep—
I’m not as strong as you are . . .
your words cut me deep!
I’m not as strong as you are . . .
your words say hate another
and when you say that
I’m dumb to love
and one who’s different is not
my brother—
I’m not as strong as you are . . .

But there was one I know
who as a babe came to earth for me
lived through trials here below,
gave all He was so I could be . . .
in poverty
showed the riches of love,
In silence
showed power of the One above
in sacrifice
brought supremacy unmatched in time
out of nothing
made the universe in beauty sublime
out of emptiness
filled all that there is so I can see
as God/man
opened the kingdom of God to me
as God/love
died to release life to redeem the Fall
for God
so loved the world . . .
that HE gave Himself and
HE is stronger than all!

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
