Another Day Strong

italy-2080072_1280

Some days are harder than others
Without your curves under the covers
Waking up knowing I’ll never hold another…like you
But then there’s days when I think everything’s gonna be alright
And nights when my heart tells me I’m gonna survive
Without you snuggling by my side

Another day gone, another day strong
I’ve gotta long way to go, down this lonely road
I don’t feel like I’m getting far, when I’m missing you so hard
But I’m praying one day at a time, since you’ve been gone
I’m another day strong

Some days I’m haunted by your face
Driving by spots where we used to date
Sometimes you appear in crazy ways…out of the blue
Like hearing that song you always sang the wrong words to
When a caller on the radio sounded just like you
Catching the scent of your perfume

I’m moving on, never the same
Changed by love, changed by pain
But your memory will never fade

Another day gone, another day strong
I’m another day strong

The Purpose Of Our Lives

target-755802_1280

Our sin leads to death and heartbreak
Makes life a headache
And this world leaves us
Dissatisfied

Our hearts long for something higher
A Consuming Fire
Who’s grace fights for us
Until we cry

There is no other
Sisters and brothers
Nothing compares to
The Savior seated on high
Let’s tell the world this truth
And live to glorify
The Purpose of our lives

Lord, we question what your Word says
We have our own plans
We lose our way when
We look within

But You have told us to trust You
In all that we do
Not to trust ourselves
For we’re not God

Lord, when we don’t know what to do
Our eyes are on You
When we don’t know what to do
Our eyes are on You
Lord, when we don’t know what to do
Our eyes are on You…
The Purpose of our lives

Tom’s Song

Tom Carpenter
Tom Carpenter

One wretched sinner, saved by grace
Through Christ the Son Who took my place
Once dead in sin, a guilty man
Until I met the Great I AM

He knows the number of my days
Discerns my thoughts, sees all my ways
Sealed with the Spirit – guaranteed
O Praise His name! How can this be?

His way, His path, His narrow road
My life’s journey will yet unfold
And when “God help me!” is my cry
My Sovereign knows, He’s not surprised

Though dark and desperate days find me
I’ll fix my hope on Calvary
For Sin and Death cannot prevail
When Christ, the Cure, has made me well

Behind the lines

This song, and the idea behind the GraceSyllables blog, was inspired because of how God worked through Tom Carpenter’s life and his final days with terminal cancer. Tom passed away February 16, 2010 at the age of 51. You may learn more here along with the compelling words he wrote before he died.
