Every Man - by Casting Crowns



Every Man - by Casting Crowns

I'm the man with all I've ever wanted
All the toys and playing games
I am the one who pours your coffee, corner booth each Saturday
I am your daughter's favorite teacher
I am the leader of the band
I sit behind you in the bleachers
I am every man

I'm the coach of every winning team and still a loser in my mind
I am the soldier in the airport facing giants one more time
I am the woman shamed and haunted by the cry of unborn life
I'm every broken man, nervous child, lonely wife

Is there hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
Is there hope for every man
Is there love that never dies
Is there peace in troubled times
Someone help me understand
Is there hope for every man

Seems there's just so many roads to travel, it's hard to tell where they will lead
My life is scarred and my dreams unraveled
Now I'm scared to take the leap
If I could find someone to follow who knows my pain and feels the weight
The uncertainty of my tomorrow, the guilt and pain of yesterday

There is hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
There is hope for every man
There is Love that never dies
There is peace in troubled times
Will we help them understand?
Jesus is hope for every man




These few lines really speaks to me right now :

Seems there's just so many roads to travel, it's hard to tell where they will lead
My life is scarred and my dreams unraveled
Now I'm scared to take the leap
If I could find someone to follow who knows my pain and feels the weight

There is hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
There is hope for every man
There is Love that never dies
There is peace in troubled times
Will we help them understand?
Jesus is hope for every man

After I failed my exams ... I was trying to figure out what to do with my life ... sit for exams again (private exams in Singapore or Australia ) .... change my field .... sit for MBA or go for Nutrition or alternative medicine or ....... the choices are endless .... I wanted to find someone who understands me and knows my strength and weakness .... and guess what ... most of them are busy with their lives .... and God by His grace arranged it in a such a way to make me realized that the only Person I need to consult is HIM. There was no one to turn to but Him. He alone knows my strengths and weaknesses.... He alone holds my future in His hands.

Once again .... I say to myself : " Be still and know that He is God " I am learning to quiet down myself .... to shut off all the voices within from myself and outside, the world .... so that I can finally hear His still small voice again. I am waiting on Him. I surrender myself again at His feet. May His will alone be done. Amen

I envy you because you know so much what else to do in life than being a doctor.

I know it could not be a co-incidence. Probably, "The Rest" in my posting/blog today is for you too.

God Bless you.
