Strength of My Heart

Lord, You are the strength of my heart
You are always for me in every part
No matter what happens each day
I know You will show me the way

When I feel like I cannot continue
You carry me under Your wings too
When I am too discouraged to fight
You pick me up to Your secure light

Like an athlete competing in a race
You cheer me on applauding my pace
I hear Your voice shouting my name
Someday calling me home all the same

Yes, this world has heartache and pain
With You by my side, hope I always gain
There will be ups and downs in my journey
It will be worth it all when I reach eternity

Thank You, Lord, every need You will meet
Satan will try to discourage, but cannot defeat
It only takes one job, which You have in store
Your timing I await by open and closed doors

Based on insights from the following
Max Lucado devotional:

God is for You
By Max Lucado

"God is the strength of my heart."  
Psalm 73:26, NKJV

God is for you. Turn to the sidelines; that's
God cheering your run. Look past the finish
line; that's God applauding your steps. Listen
for Him in the bleachers, shouting your name.
Too tired to continue? He'll carry you. Too
discouraged to fight? He's picking you up.
God is for you.
