Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
Wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
 
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
Wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
 
Our God You reign forever
Our Hope our strong Deliverer
 
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint You won't grow weary
 
You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles
 
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
The everlasting God
The everlasting

TID-bits

  • This song reminds me of retirement planning.
  • The strength of my account balances rise as long as I keep waiting.

  • Volkswagen has made a prototype car, the XL-1, that can get up to 261 miles per gallon.
  • To do that, most of the parts are made of lightweight carbon fiber, the fuel tank is only about two gallons, and the engine switches between diesel and batteries.
  • It made me think about how much better I run when I take away all the things that weigh me down,
  • And how much stronger I am when I switch from my own power to God’s power.

  • Have you ever experienced jet lag?  Growing weary in the middle of the day?  Waking up at 3am?  Feeling foggy, a little cross-eyed and weak?
  • They say that for every hour you go forward, it could take that same number of days to recover - so if you go somewhere that’s 7 hours ahead, it could take 7 days to fully recover.
  • Even if you’re not jet lagged, but you just feel like your clock is off, let this song remind you to wait.
  • You will recover - thanks to a God who never grows weary, even if you are.
