Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I came up out of the water
Raise my hands up to the Father
Gave it all to Him that day
Felt a new wind kiss my face
Walked away, Eyes wide open
Could finally see where I was goin'
It didn’t matter where I’d been
I’m not the same man I was then.
 
I got off track, I made mistakes
Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won’t go away
I hit my knees, Now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am
Changed
 
I got a lot of “hey I’m sorry's”
The things I’ve done, man that was not me
I wish I could take it all back
I just want to tell 'em that
Tell 'em that
 
I got off track, I made mistakes
Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won’t go away
I hit my knees, Now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am
 
I’ve changed for the better
More Smiles, that’s better
I even started to forgive myself
 
I hit my knees, I’m here, I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am, Here I am
I'm changed
Yes, I am
I’m changed for the better
Thank God, I'm changed.

TID-bits

  • Think about the last time you had eggs for breakfast.
  • They had to be broken to bring you any benefit.
  • Change will break us.
  • But change also makes us into something better.

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

  • What if our legs could only move in one direction?   That’d be kind of silly wouldn’t it?
  • See, every time we move we have to have some sort of change of direction.   Even trips from one cubicle or office to another isn’t always in a straight line.
  • It’s not frightening because you know where you’re going.
  • It’s the trips without a destination that are scary.
  • That’s when you have to realize that God has the complete overview, and that He’s made you to accomplish voyages full of change. (A.K.A. “Life”)

  • That is a song of someone having a lot of trust.
  • I think the saddest thing in life is when a person decides to stay in a situation that will hurt them, because it’s the “only thing they know.”
  • God wants us to trust Him, though.   He wants to bring you out of the places and away from the things that harm you.
  • Isaiah 43:19 says “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”
  • Can you trust Him to take you to a new place?   A better place in life?

    Your Own Experiences

    Think about your baptism and answer this question:   Is change really change unless you outwardly show it?

    Talk about an airplane door, or a car door, and the time you went through one to go away from a place you wouldn’t be returning.   We’re you scared?   Did God help you work it out?
