I Didn't Know my Own Strength

The emotions I am feeling... this journey I have been on can be quite overwhelming at times.It's almost all in hindsight. The feelings can be felt so strong and so deep into the core of my heart that it really physically hurts, yet feels so GOOD! I love it! I welcome it! Fairly recently I learned that in order to heal, you have to feel. Heal and grow that is.

At various times I was faced with the unthinkable yet I learned so much and feel so grateful.

I heard this song for the first time tonight and it sure got my attention. I immediately had to look up the lyrics and was flabbergasted when I read them. I could have written this! I just have to share.

Whitney Houston 2009 (?)

I Didn't Know My Own Strength Lyrics:

Lost touch with my soul
I had no where to turn
I had no where to go
Lost sight of my dream,
Thought it would be the end of me
I thought I’d never make it through
I had no hope to hold on to,
I thought I would break

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

Found hope in my heart,
I found the light to life
My way out of the dark
Found all that I need
Here inside of me
I thought I’d never find my way
I thought I’d never lift that weight
I thought I would break


I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

There were so many times I
Wondered how I’d get through the night I
Thought took all I could take

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength
