My Sunday Song – “Stronger Than We Think” by Danny Gokey

Welcome to My Sunday Song #31.  I am back in the driver’s seat after my wife picked the last 10 weeks.  For the next 10 weeks we are back to the Christian Artists and songs that have a positive message and have connected with me in some way.

First up we have “Stronger Than We Think” by Danny Gokey off his latest album ‘Rise’. If you want to read the review of that album click on “RISE”.  The first song on the album is “Stronger Than We Think” and I loved how timely it felt for everything crazy going on in this country right now.  Everything does seem much darker, but there seems to be a fire igniting in all of us and we realize we are all so much stronger than we think we are.

That fire for me is my faith and my family.  Without both of those, I would probably be a mess right now.  I want everyone to realize they are definitely stronger than they think and there is nothing you can’t do if you set your mind to it.

Take a listen and take the words to heart.  Play this song in the morning while you are looking in the mirror and sing the words real loud.  I hope they motivate you.  I personally haven’t done that as it would wake my whole family as I get up earlier than they do for work. I usually sing it loudly in the car…I don’t want anyone’s ears to start bleeding so that seemed like a safe place.  Enjoy!

“Stronger Than We Think”

Does it seem much darker than it did before, before?
Does it feel like we’re up against so much more, much more?

But hope is stirring us inside
And the darkness has to run and hide
‘Cause we illuminate the night

There’s a war we’re fighting
We’re waking up and calling on love to rise
Like a battle cry
There’s a fire igniting
It’s burning everything trying to hide
The light we shine

Cause we’re stronger than we think we are
There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts
Pushing up against the dark
Yeah we’re stronger than we think we are
Cause we’re stronger than we think we are
There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts
Pushing up against the dark
Yeah we’re stronger than we think, stronger than we think

‘Cause the night has no power on its own, on its own
Through our fear we give it space where it don’t belong, don’t belong

But hope is stirring us inside
And the darkness has to run and hide
‘Cause we illuminate the night

There’s a war we’re fighting
We’re waking up and calling on love to rise
Like a battle cry
There’s a fire igniting
It’s burning everything trying to hide
The light we shine

Cause we’re stronger than we think we are
There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts
Pushing up against the dark
Yeah we’re stronger than we think we are
Cause we’re stronger than we think we are
There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts
Pushing up against the dark
Yeah we’re stronger than we think, stronger than we think

Calling every heart chosen from the start
You’re not made for hiding
There’s a love igniting

There’s a war we’re fighting
We’re waking up and calling on love to rise
Like a battle cry
There’s a fire igniting
It’s burning everything trying to hide
The light we shine

Cause we’re stronger than we think we are
There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts
Pushing up against the dark…
Stronger than we think we are
There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts
Pushing up against the dark
Yeah we’re stronger than we think we are
Cause we’re stronger than we think we are
There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts
Pushing up against the dark
Yeah we’re stronger than we think, stronger than we think
