"I Didn't Know My Own Strength"
The above are the lyrics to Whitney Houston's I Didn't Know My Own Strength.... For a while, I've been in a very bad place.... like I've been waking up depressed for a while. But I realized that each time I played this song, I just got strength from somewhere to do whatever it was I had to.
This morning, I woke up deeper in depressionville and I started playing this song while I bawled out my eyes wishing I didn't have to come out from under my blanket, a little while later I decided to do my morning devotion under my blanket. Lo n Behold, today's topic was The Silent Comforter; and this was the outline under the topic
It was just like whoever the author of the devotional is and Whitney Houston knew what I needed. I finally got out of bed and I tried to get ready to set out, i heard I had lost someone close and it got me thinking. Perhaps I really didn't have a thing to worry about after all. I was awake, hale, hearty, healthy but just sad, I had a roof over my head, and I had one more day to look forward to. I began to think of all the times I could have died, all the accidents I had been involved in but I came out unscathed.
Adeyemi Lawal, death came too soon for you and heaven gained a really young soul. There was so much you had left to do, see; there were places you still had to go, but God knows best and he took you away from us. I don't know how your mom is taking the news but I pray that God gives her the strength to bear this great loss. EBCO misses you already and I miss you more. I wish I could turn back the hands of time to spend more time with you but God knows best. RIP BROTHER AND FRIEND.... TILL WE MEET TO PART NO MORE.
