oceans

last look at sunset on our wedding day

Hillsong United recently released a new song “Oceans ~ Where Feet may Fail,” that has been speaking to me from the first time I heard it.  Being one that rather likes to feel the earth beneath my feet, for me the ocean is so beautiful, but yet so very daunting.  

Listening carefully to the lyrics, my own personal struggles not only flood my heart, but so do those of our family and friends who are also facing struggles and trials.  There’s the precious couple who suffered a miscarriage, another facing infertility, several friends dealing with major health issues, despondency and depression, the family whose three-year old daughter will never walk or develop normally because of a freak accident, the healing of a marriage, the untimely death of a former student, difficulties at work, a heart hurting from a broken relationship . . .

All we have to do is look around us and the oceans are there.

The way we go through trials reflect to others how we go through life.  Our feet can not carry us, but His grace abounds in the deepest water.

Oceans ~ Where Feet may Fail
Hillsong United

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

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 will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
