Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

Your spirit hovers over my waters

Your love burns longer than the sun

The skies of thunder echo you wonder

Your praises can't be over - sung

 

The whole Universe is witness

To only a part of what you've done

So let me rediscover you

And breathe in me your life anew

Tell me of the God I never knew

Oh, let me rediscover you

 

You see my weakness, my pride, my blindness

You wield your power through them all

Of all the mysteries, still, the greatest to me

Is that you're faithful when I fall

 

How can I say I know you

When what I know is still so small?

Let me rediscover you and breathe in me your life anew

Tell me of the God I never knew

Oh, let me rediscover you

 

Let me cry "holy, holy, holy"

Let me awaken to your majesty

And see a glimmer of your glory

Let me abide in you

 

let me rediscover you

and by your grace I'll follow through

reveal to me the God I thought I knew

 

let me rediscover you

And breathe in me your life anew

Tell me of the God I never knew

And let me rediscover you

 

Oh, let me rediscover you

Tell me of the God I never knew

Jesus, let me rediscover you.

TID-bits

  • You know how it is when your finally get your kid to clean their room, and they rediscover that little game cartridge that’s been missing for months?
  • Then they spend the rest of the day with it?
  • When we rediscover God after being away from Him, we find that we want to have more of Him.
  • Usually, the best way to keep that going is to not let our lives get so cluttered to begin with.

  • If you ever learned CPR, you probably heard of the ABC’s of resuscitation.
  • They are Airway, Breathing, and Circulation.
  • In that song, Downhere sings about breathing in God’s life anew.
  • However, you gotta check the Airway first - are you keeping the lines of communication open with God?
  • Then are you breathing deep what He’s telling you - meditating on it, letting it soak in?
  • And finally, are you circulating it out to the rest of your life?   Letting it   change you?

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

  • There’s a cool line in this song to think about...
  • It says “The whole Universe is witness, to only part of what you’ve done.”
  • I know that I can’t even begin to fathom the scope of the whole universe, with it’s billions of galaxies, each with billions of stars.
  • And yet, the group Downhere says it’s only part of what He’s done.
  • It kind of puts what you’re going through in perspective, doesn’t it?

    Your Own Experiences

    Most people have had a wilderness experience, a time when they were wandering.   Describe yours, better yet describe when you came out of it and discovered God anew.

    There’s a line in the song that says:   “You see my weakness, my pride, my blindness.   You wield your power through them all”   How has God wielded His power through your weakness?”
