Taking It Deeper


Ramblers in the wilderness

Yeah we can't find what we need

We get a little restless from the searching

Get a little worn down in between

Like a bull chasing a matador is man left to his own schemes

But everybody needs someone beside em

Shining like a light from the sea


Brother let me be your shelter

Never leave you all alone

I can be the one to call when you're low

Brother let me be your fortress when the night winds are driving on

Be the one to light the way

Bring you home


Face down in the desert now

There's a cage locked around my heart

I found a way to drop the key where my failures were, now my hands can't reach that far

I ain't made for a rivalry and I could never take the world alone

I know that in my weakness I am stronger, but it's your love that brings me home


You remember Anne Hathaway, the actress?  Maybe you saw her in the Princess Diaries, or in Les Miserables where she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

She has a quote that goes along with this song.  She said:

“Loneliness is my least favorite thing about life. The thing that I'm most worried about is just being alone without anybody to care for or someone who will care for me.”

If an actress who has won the highest accolades in her profession can worry about loneliness, then it’s normal if you do too.  One of the most comforting things that I know is that if anything were to happen to me or my wife, the other one would have a loving family and a loving church that would care for them.

That’s why it’s important that we build those relationships now.  How can you reach out to someone today who either needs a friend, or who you may need as a friend someday?



Proverbs 18:24 (ESV)

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.


Zechariah 7:9 (ESV)

Thus says the Lord of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another,


Matthew 12:50 (ESV)

For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”


Ecclesiastes 4:12 (ESV)

And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
