As I mentioned in my last post, the song "Oceans" by Hillsong United has been on some serious replay here in my little world. Today as I belted it out I was reminded of how powerful and how scary the lyrics of the song actually are...
"Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior"
To be lead by God to where our trust is without borders is a HUGE prayer. It means letting down our guard and letting Him overtake our lives.
To be taken deeper than our feet will ever let us wander is a BOLD statement. It means that we have to give up our plans and let His be the only ones that matter.
Maybe you've never heard of this song or maybe, like me, you've sung it a million times... Either way, take some time to dive into the lyrics (for this song and of other praise songs). Take time to understand what you are singing because you may not realize how huge and bold a prayer those words actually are. And if you do, awesome! Sing them like you really mean them.
My challenge for myself this week is to not sing these words because they are a pretty melody, but I want to sing them because that is what I want God to actually do in my life.
