Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

In open fields of wild flowers
she breathes the air and flies away
She thanks her Jesus for the daisies
and the roses
in no simple language
Someday she'll understand
the meaning of it all
 
(CHORUS)
He's more than the laughter or the
stars in the heaven
As close as a heartbeat or
a song on her lips
Someday she'll trust Him and learn
how to see Him
Someday He'll call her and she will come running
and fall in His arms and the
tears will fall down and she'll pray
 
"I want to fall in love with You"
 
Sitting silent wearing Sunday best
The sermon echoes through the walls
A great salvation through it
calls to the people
who stare into nowhere
and can't feel the chains on their soul
 
It seems too easy to call you 'Savior'
Not close enough to call you 'God'
So as I sit and think of words I can
mention
to show my devotion
 
"I want to fall in love with You'
 
(CHORUS)
He's more than the laughter or the
stars in the heaven
As close as a heartbeat or a song on
our lips
Someday we'll trust Him and learn how
to see Him
Someday He'll call us and we will come
running
and fall in His arms and the fears
Will fall down and we'll pray,
"I want to fall in love with You,
my heart beats for You."

TID-bits

An old Pastor of mine had a phrase that he would use all the time near the end of his messages.   He’d say “this is for you if you’re kicking the tires.”   It was because he knew that there were some in the congregation who weren’t ready to make a commitment.   Like people shopping for a new car who were just in the showroom exploring.

Most people hear the title or the chorus of this song and they think “it’s a song about love,”  but really it’s a song about trust.   It’s about people who are “not quite there yet” in believing that Jesus is what they need.   They are “kicking the tires.”

This song uses the word “someday” a lot, as in “someday she’ll trust Him.”   So use this song to tell those who are listening - who might just be searching - that it’s OK to hang out in the showroom and kick the tires.   Invite them to grab a cup of coffee, and assure them that when they’re ready, you’ll help them into a relationship with Jesus that they will love.

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

  •  There’s a point that’s brought home a number of times in the Bible:
  • It’s about showing love to God by being obedient to His commands.
  • John 5 talks about it.  So does John 14 and John 15.
  • It is one of the toughest things to do.
  • But the more you try it, the easier it becomes.
  • This (That) song has one line in it that points that out.  It says:
  • “Someday we’ll trust Him, and learn how to see Him.”
  • The more we trust, the more we obey,
  • And the more we obey, the more we get to see how His love works in and/or through our lives.

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

  • Sometimes stuff happens to us that we have no control over,
  • Like “falling in love at first sight.”  It’s an involuntary thing.  It just happens.
  • However, when it comes to Jesus,  most of us have to work at falling in love with Him.
  • It’s a voluntary thing.  We have to make ourselves do it.
  • Here’s an example:  Giving.  It’s a voluntary act.  We have to write a check, or click online, or sign up to help build a house.
  • The more we do it though, the more we see how positively it effects us.
  • And it moves from something we do voluntarily to something we do naturally.
  • This (That) song make me wonder if I’m progressing on the scale of  “wanting to fall in love with Jesus.”

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

  • This song is for those who are still trying to trust in Jesus  
  • Because there’s a difference between sitting in church and sitting at His feet.

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

  • We hang on to our self reliance.
  • It starts when we’re young.   One of our favorite phrases is “I can do it myself, Mom!”
  • As we mature though, we find that the majority of things in life are done better when we ask for help.
  • That’s what this (that) song is saying when you hear “I want to fall in love with you.”
  • It’s about letting go, and finally trusting that Jesus can handle everything.

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

  • We struggle through life trying to make things happen:
  • We try to get others to love us, to accept us, to notice us, to pay attention to us.
  • When we finally get to the point where we’re so tired of making it happen; so tired that we just don’t care anymore,  it’s then that we realize that Jesus has been calling us all along to rest.
  • To fall in His arms as this (that) song says.
  • When we finish fighting it,   He find that He's been fighting for us.
  • And when we see someone fighting for us, we fall in love with that someone.

    Your Own Experiences

    Did you ever fall in love at first sight, and had to build trust afterwards?   Isn’t that often how our relationships go?   Describe how you fell in love with your spouse, but how you found it takes years of putting aside yourself - basically trusting completely in him or her - to grow an incredibly satisfying love.   Describe that it’s the same with Jesus.

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

    Did you ever get a piece of technology that you absolutely wanted to love - like a new cell phone, or computer?   Didn’t you find yourself having to adapt to it’s methods of operation before you loved it?   Describe how all relationships are like that, including our relationship with Jesus.

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

    Did you ever want to love a person but that love wasn’t reciprocated? Talk about those feelings of hurt.   Then talk about a relationship with Jesus, and how it is one love that always puts it’s best toward you.   It may not always be comfortable, just like any relationship, but it is one you can trust.
