Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place where we can’t’ find peace
There’s no end to amazing grace
 
Take me in with Your arms spread wide
Take me in like an orphan child
Never let go
Never leave my side
 
I am
Holding on to You
I am
Holding on to You
In the middle of the storm
I am holding on
I am
 
Love like this
Oh my God to find
I am overwhelmed
With a joy divine
Love like this sets our hearts on fire
 
This is my resurrection song
This is my halleluiah come
This is why it’s to You I run
 
There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place where we can’t find peace
There’s no end to amazing grace

TID-bits

  • What if George Clooney suddenly became your best friend?
  • You’d be able to talk, joke, carry on a conversation about deep subjects.  You’d watch as regular people got all nervous and tongue-tied around Him.
  • Most of us treat big celebrities with awe and we’re standoffish around them.
  • Some of us treat God that way. Like He’s a big unapproachable celebrity.  We get all nervous around Him.
  • But the Bible says that He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24)
  • Do you feel free to talk, joke, and carry on a conversation about deep subjects with Him?

—————————————————

  • Sometimes I start to pray and I just can’t think of words to say.
  • Do you ever feel that way?  Does it ever feel like you’re in His presence and you feel the pressure to think of something brilliant - or at least coherent?
  • Well don’t, because He wants you to feel like you’re in the company of a loving daddy, and not just an awesome Father.
  • Try to imagine yourself just crawling up in His lap and holding on to Him, without having any sort of pressure to impress Him.

—————————————————

  • This (That) song says there’s no place that His love can’t reach.
  • That’s true, but I find there’s times that He can’t reach my heart - because I won’t let Him!
  • There are times that I want to wallow in self-pity, and moan about how the world treats me.
  • Times that I won’t let Him in to love me.
  • If you’re in that place today.  Stop and open yourself back up to Him, and let Him tell you how much He loves you.

    Your Own Experiences

    Confess how often you feel far away from God.  Then make a commitment that you’re going to stop once again and let yourself hold on to Him.  Tell your listeners how much you need to do that kind of “reset” pretty much on a daily basis.

    —————————————————

    Paint a picture of sitting quietly in a room.  A picture of stopping down and letting God hold you.

    —————————————————

    Describe a time in your life that you were running from God.  Describe the futility of it, because He ultimately found you.
