Oceans...


‘Oceans(Where feet may fail)’ from the Hillsong album Zion is my song of the moment. I've played it on repeat daily in the last couple of days. There's such a huge comfort and trust that comes trailing after every word that is sung and even the sound of the instruments... and it's not about how beautiful Taya Smith's voice is... It's about how beautiful the Savior she sings about is.

There’s something about trust. We trust humans and they fail us even with the simplest things and so we kind of hold back when it comes to trusting and we put that attitude up with God, because, we’re not so sure, maybe He would fail us too. I want to get to that place of absolute trust… believing God is leading me somewhere beyond my dreams. I want to keep my eyes on Him as I go with His leading, not doubting, but drawing strength from His presence and His faithfulness… I know He’s doing something with me right now, I don’t understand it all, especially when they don't happen the way I envisioned them to. Thus in my own understanding, I tend to freeze and let the questions rise up within me sometimes, even if it's for a split second, the questions rise.

It takes a constant reminder to myself to stop and let God have His way, to trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. (Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Proverbs 3:5-7(the msg))
My understanding is limited, His wisdom is limitless, and the best thing I can do is rest in His wisdom.

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



I pray the song speaks to you as much as it's spoken to me!
