Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I can’t say that everything’s okay
‘Cause I can see the tears you’re crying
And I can’t promise to take the pain away
But you can know I won’t stop trying
 
[Chorus]
I’ll be the angel by your side
I will get you through the night
I’ll be the strength you can’t provide on your own
‘Cause when you’re down and out of time
And you think you’ve lost the fight
Let me be the angel
The angel by your side
 
I know it feels like you’re running out of faith
‘Cause it’s so hard to keep believing
But if I can bring a smile back to your face
If for a moment, you’ll forget all about it
 
[Chorus]
I’ll be the angel by your side
I will get you through the night
I’ll be the strength you can’t provide on your own
‘Cause when you’re down and out of time
And you think you’ve lost the fight
Let me be the angel
The angel by your side
 
‘Cause this won’t be the last time
You’ll need a little hope
But I want to be the first to let you know
 
[Chorus]
I’ll be the angel by your side
I will get you through the night
I’ll be the strength you can’t provide on your own
‘Cause when you’re down and out of time
And you think you’ve lost the fight
Let me be the angel
The angel by your side

TID-bits

  • There’s a commercial I’ve seen lately where a family is trying to save money on vacations by making their own cheap theme park.
  • There’s a shot of a dad pulling his daughter through a cardboard tunnel with a garden hose.
  • This (that) song is like that.   God will send either angels or people to pull you through when things are lame.

----------------------------------

  • Here’s some things you can give thanks for:
  • For God’s feet, that move toward you.
  • For His hands and arms that lift you and hold you,
  • And for those friends that act as God’s hands and feet when you need them.

----------------------------------

  • The definition of an angel is this: Angels are spiritual beings created by God to serve Him, and they are higher than we are in the spiritual order.
  • The Bible doesn’t say anywhere that we will become angels, but when we attempt to serve others because of the love that God has shown us, we are acting like angels.
  • Our goal should always be to serve others.

----------------------------------

  • A windstorm knocked over a small tree in a neighbor’s yard.
  • As he put it back up, he placed rods on either side of it, and tied the tree to them.
  • All so the tree could be strengthened as it recovered.
  • When we get knocked down by life, we need someone to get us back up - someone to hold onto, someone to keep us sturdy while we try to grow our roots again.
  • If you need that today, we’d be more than happy to pray with you, and we’re always here to encourage you.

    Scripture References

    Psalm 103:20

    Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.

    ----------------------------------

    Psalm 91:11  

    For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

    ----------------------------------

    Hebrews 1:14

    Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

    Your Own Experiences

    Talk about a friend who showed up unexpectedly when you were sick.

    ----------------------------------

    Ever been stranded on the side of the road, and someone stopped to help?   Did you describe that person as an angel?

    ----------------------------------

    Feel free to admit that maybe this song isn’t completely theologically sound - people can’t actually be “angels,”   but people can serve others the same way angels do.   It’s an example of the spirit of the law more than the letter of the law.
