Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I just let go

And I feel exposed

But its so beautiful

Cuz this is who I am

I've been such a mess

But now I can't care less

I could bleed to death

 

Oh Lord I'm ready now

All the walls are down

Time is running out

And I wanna make this count

I ran away from you

And did what I wanted to

But I don't wanna let you down

Oh Lord I'm ready now

Lord I'm ready now

 

You called my name

I turned away

But now I

Am listening

I was so caught up

In who I'm not

Can you please forgive me?

 

I've nothing left to hide

No reason's left to lie

Give me another chance

TID-bits

  • You know what I find is most true about Home Improvement stores?
  • I always have to go back to them.
  • It’s true.  I think the 24 gauge wire nut will work for the ceiling fan when I really need a 14 gauge.  So back I go.
  • Sometimes we get frustrated when we just can’t get it right the first time.
  • God knows that - and He doesn't get frustrated with you when you mess up.
  • He loves to see you come back to Him time after time.

  • Do your teenagers have selective hearing?
  • You call them…they don’t answer…however, you have a quiet conversation about buying a new iPhone and they immediately shout down the hall that they want one too.
  • Our lives our often examples of selective hearing.  God will call us to do something, and we’ll wait to respond until it’s something we want to hear.
  • However, this is a song that discovers the wisdom of responding to everything He wants to say.

  • Have you ever “let your house go?”
  • You spend a couple of days on a project and the dishes don’t get put away.  There’s a pan of spaghetti sauce left on the stove.  Counters full of mail are stacked up, and so on.
  • Finally, you’ve had enough and you go through this big energy burst of getting it all back in order.
  • That’s kind of what this song is about.

  1. KSWP says:

    I wonder if the title should have been Lord, I give up now. So many times you can “fight” what God wants to do in your life. There’s is real freedom in just saying I give up God – God promises to do more than we can hope or imagine so consider giving up today…
