He is Able

If memory serves me correctly, it was in Chapel my Junior year at Cascade College. My good friend and suite-mate, Jill Dodson (who was given the voice of an angel) sang this song.
It was a very trying semester for me and I was in a dark time emotionally. I had returned from my studies overseas and my best friend and room mate for the past two and half years, had transferred to Oklahoma Christian. I felt lonely, afraid, and sad. The lyrics and the way this song was presented showed me Light in my darkness. It pointed me to Him, guiding my thoughts toward not who I was, but who He is and that He believed in me.
As I did the dishes the other day, I couldn't help but sing this song again and again, letting the words wash over me, cleansing me once again.

He is able, more than able,
to accomplish what concerns me today.
He is able, more than able,
to handle anything that comes my way.
He is able, more than able,
to do much more than I could ever dream.
He is able, more than able,
to make me what He wants me to be.
