Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

All the oceans and the seas know the sound of Your beautiful voice.
And if You tell them to be calm and be still they have no other choice.
You put the stars in the sky and then You taught them to shine.
They know just what to do.
Every morning's a symphony that's perfectly timed by beautiful You.
 
Chorus
Beautiful You. I can't imagine life without You.
Beautiful You. I can't imagine being alone.
Beautiful You. God all I ever want to do is have You hold me in Your arms.
Beautiful You.
 
All the waterfalls know just where to fall brilliant every time.
And when it rains You are behind it all with gentle rhythm and rhyme.
Mountains high know Your voice and they are ready to move where You tell them to.
With all my heart I believe that power lives in me because of beautiful You.
 
(Chorus)
 
Every ocean, every sea, every morning's a symphony.
Every drop of rain, every waterfall, all the stars in the sky are so beautiful.
Every breath I breathe, every beat of my heart. I feel so alive because of who You are.
Every day I rise, every time I sing I'm reminded of Your great love for me.
You're beautiful, so beautiful.
 
(Chorus)

TID-bits

This is a song about creation acknowledging it’s Creator.   That includes us.   Another song with the same topic is “Everything Glorious” by David Crowder Band which says “You make everything glorious and I am yours - what does that make me?”

You can easily tie this song into a beautiful vacation spot or a beautiful geographical area located near you.   Follow it up by describing how the Creator of all that beauty wants to let you (the listener) know how beautiful you are to Him.

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

  • A friend was showing me pictures of his Colorado vacation.
  • One picture had his son looking at a rock.
  • Another showed them by a stream.
  • It made me think of how  just looking at a rock, or listening to some water falling  is often the most energizing thing we can do.
  • It gets us reconnected to our creator.
  • Just like this song.

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

  • One thing you might want to consider doing is writing your daughter a note about how beautiful she is.
  • Then, during the next full moon, string some white Christmas lights on your patio, and take her outside and read her the letter.
  • After that, download this song, and also the song “Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman and dance with her.
  • If you don’t have a daughter, then you can write your wife or girlfriend the note and dance with her under the moonlight, (and drop the “Cinderella” part).
  • That’s a way to understand what this (that) song is all about.   That we can feel His love under His creation.

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

  • I saw a story about the folks in the town of Viganella in the Italian Alps who had a problem.
  • Their village is down in the bottom of a steep valley, and the surrounding mountains block out direct sunlight from mid-November through early February.
  • Can you imagine how depressing it is to be deprived of sunlight for a long period of time?
  • So they put up a big mirror up on the mountainside above the town to reflect sunlight down into the village.
  •  1 John 1:5 says “This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you:   God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.
  • The lesson of Viganella is that God will find a way to shine His beauty down on you, so that you can be the mirror to reflect it to others.

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

  • Everyday I go to work the same way.   I see the same things.   Read the same signs.
  • But have you ever thought about getting off the beaten path?   One day, I did, and I decided to go through a neighborhood that I’d never been through before.
  • And I saw a yard with a waterfall in it.
  • I think about that when I hear this song because it says “all the waterfalls know just where to fall   - brilliant every time.”
  • God has bits of beauty all around you, like undiscovered waterfalls in neighborhoods.   He’s always ready to delight you.
  • Who wouldn’t want to spend time with someone like that?

    Scripture References

    The first verse of the song talks about the sea and the stars obeying His voice.   These first two scripture references talk about how natural objects reflect the praise that God is due.  

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

    Mark 4:39-41 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves,   “Quiet! Be still!”   Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

    He said to his disciples,   “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

    They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

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

    Luke 19:38-40   “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”   “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”

    Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”

    “I tell you,”   he replied,   “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”

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

    Ezekiel 36:25-27. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

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

    With this verse you can talk about how all of creation praises Him, and since we are a "new creation" in Him, we too should look forward to praising Him.

    Ephesians 4:22-24.  You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

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

    Explain an instance where Christ made things work out in the long run - How, with hindsight,  you saw that He helped things fall into place.   Tie that into the thoughts Trent Monk has about seas becoming calm and stars and waterfalls falling into place.

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

    Talk about the first time you looked through a telescope and someone showed you Jupiter or Venus.   We get amazed when we actually see things that we know are there but we can’t really see.   Tie that into this song.   It’s because God loves you so much, that He created beautiful things for you to discover, so that you can share in the wonder of them together.

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

    Talk about a time that you created something for somebody.   It could be a piece of furniture, or something simpler like a pie.   The truth is, we create because we love.   That’s what this song is all about.

  1. I headed home yesterday, amid cloudy skies. As I came over one of our bridges, the sun broke through the clouds. It made everything look spectacular. Grass was a deep shade of green, water in the marsh glistened, and behind us the sky was the bluest-blue I have ever seen. Everything that the light touched, was suddenly beautiful and spectacular; even the local chemical plant. I looked at the smoke stack and thought “if that nasty dirty place can be brilliant in God’s light, what must His children look like when we shine his light?”.
