Taller, Stronger, Better

Hi!  Thanks for reading my REAP articles.
I’m currently on holidays at the moment so thought I would do something slightly different.
I have found a number of songs have been really helpful to me over the last year for various reasons.  I would like to honour the artists by sharing their song with you.

Now, anyone who knows me would not be surprised that Guy Sebastian would have to feature in my 'meaningful songs' catalogue, but you should be impressed that I only added one Guy song!!  Taller, Stronger, Better was released around the time I was struggling with infertility.  Due to the medications I was on I became very depressed and struggled to go through a day without bursting into tears.  This song gave me the words that I couldn't piece together and reminded me of how my faith could pull me through.

Taller, Stronger, Better – Guy Sebastian

I've met the darkness
Been held by the night
Lonely was there in my arms
I've been with broken
I've stared in her eyes
Emptiness left me this scar

But I heard your voice
Calling me out of the cold

And now I can live again
I have been chosen to run with the wind
I can go higher I know I will soar
I'm taller, I'm stronger, I'm better than before

I've walked through fire so I could become
All that you said I could be
And now my breath has a reason
My sky has a sun
Cause in you I've found all that I need

Your touched revived me
It was your love that opened my eyes

And now I can live again
I have been chosen to run with the wind
I can go higher I know I will soar
I'm taller, I'm stronger, I'm better than before

I broke through the rain
Stood through the storm
Now I know I remain
And I can do the impossible
I can reach the unreachable
Its my time
I will rise and live

And I can go higher I know I will soar
I'm taller, I'm stronger, I'm better than before

And now I can live again
I have been chosen to run with the wind
I can go higher I know I will soar
I'm taller, I'm stronger, I'm better than before
