Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I don’t know where to go from here
It all used to seem so clear
I’m finding I can’t do this on my own
 
I don’t know where to go from here
As long as I know that You are near
I’m done fighting
I’m finally letting go
 
I will trust in You
You’ve never failed before
I will trust in You
 
(Chorus)
If there’s a road I should walk
Help me find it
If I need to be still
Give me peace for the moment
Whatever Your will
Whatever Your will
Can you help me find it
Can you help me find it
 
I’m giving You fear and You give faith
I giving you doubt You give me grace
For every step I’ve never been alone
 
Even when it hurts, You’ll have Your way
Even in the valley I will say
With every breath
You’ve never let me go
 
I will wait for You
You’ve never failed before
I will wait for You
 
(Repeat Chorus)
 
I lift my empty hands (come fill me up again)
Have Your way my King (I give my all to You)
I lift my eyes again (Was blind but now I see)
‘Cause You are all I need

(Repeat Chorus)

TID-bits

  •  If you’re searching for which direction to take, maybe ask yourself this:
  • Which one would give you more time, and more peace, with God?

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

  • With Jesus, every road is a crossroad.
  • Because every direction in life should lead you back to His cross.

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

  • Robert Frost’s famous poem “The Road Not Taken” mentioned taking the road that was less traveled, and it made all the difference.
  • Are you finding yourself at a crossroads, one where you can take the conventional wisdom way vs. one where you have to trust in God.
  • I can’t tell you which one to take, but I can tell you that the one where you have to trust in God is the one that’s less traveled in this world.
  • and that road always makes a big difference.

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

  • If you’re confused over which direction to take, I’ll give you the answer:
  • You should always take the one that leads to Jesus.
  • What does that really mean?
  • Here’s an example:   Say you’re feeling called to do something,
  • And, as you’re walking it out, you start to get excited over making money with it.
  • However, that doesn’t happen.
  • But you do grow a lot closer to Jesus in the process.
  • Even though by the world’s standard, your calling may have seemed a failure, was it still the best direction to have taken?
  • You bet it was.

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

  • Andy and Erin wanted to have a baby.
  • They had been married for nine years, and had been unable to.
  • So they decided to adopt.
  • They got information from dozens of agencies, and their heads were spinning over which direction to take.
  • So they decided to trust God with the choice.
  • Two days later, a former co-worker of Erin’s called.
  • Her niece was expecting a baby, and she wanted to adopt it out.
  • Seven months later, Andy and Erin brought home a baby boy.
  • I could probably open the phone lines and have hundreds of stories like this pour in.
  • The point is... God is directing people in paths to take all the time.
  • And your time will come too.
