Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

Its okay

To not be okay

This is a safe place

This is a safe place

 

Don't be afraid

Don't be ashamed

There's still hope here

There's still hope

 

No matter what you've done

Or who you are

Everyone is welcome

In His arms

 

(Chorus)

Just let go

Let His love wrap around you

And hold you close

Get lost in the surrender

Breathe it in, until your heart breaks

And exhale, exhale

 

Spirit come

Tear down the walls

That only you can

That only you can

 

Reconcile, this heart to yours

Right now God, right now

Oh God

We breathe in your grace

We breathe in your grace

And exhale

 

Oh God

We do not exist for us

But to share your grace and love

And exhale

(repeat)

TID-bits

By word count, at 30,047 words, the book of Psalms is not the biggest book in the Bible.  That would be Jeremiah at 33,002 words.  In a more ancient Bible, one before 1st and 2nd Kings were divided up, the book that is Kings would be the longest, at 39,145 words!

However, Psalms does have the most chapters, with 150, and there are lots of laments and prayers - David prays a lot in this book for deliverance in his times of trouble. However, what you will find the most of in this book, is praise.  Praise directed to God.

So, how does a book with chapter after chapter of praise get encapsulated?  How does it all end?  Take a look at the last verse in the last Psalm:

Psalm 150:6 (ESV)  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

It says something that God takes more chapters than in any other book of the Bible to point out the importance of praising Him.   It’s also something that the book finishes with not just one “Praise the Lord” but two!  Don’t you think it tells us that we should put praising Him not only at the top of our list, but as the final say in any matter?

So let it out. Share your lament with God.  Breathe out your need for deliverance, and breathe back in His spirit and His grace.  Let this song be a modern day Psalm, and let it’s words show you how to live through your time of trouble.
