Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

The dream is fading now I’m staring at the door
I know it’s over ‘cause my feet have hit the cold floor
Check my reflection, I ain’t feeling what I see
Its no mystery

Whatever happened to a passion I could live for?
What became of the flame that made me feel more?
And when did I forget …

That I was made to love You
I was made to find You
I was made just for You
Made to adore You
I was made to love and be loved by You
You were here before me
You were waiting on me
And you said You’d keep me never would You leave me
I was made to love
And be loved by You

The dream’s alive with my eyes open wide
Back in the ring You got me swingin’ for the grand prize
I feel the haters spittin’ vapors on my dreams
But I still believe …

I’m reaching out, reachin’ up, reachin’ over
I feel a breeze cover me called Jehovah
And Daddy I’m on my way …

Anything, I would give up for You
Everything, I’d give it all away

TID-bits

  • Are you just trying to keep up?
  • And, because of that, you've gotten away from time with God?
  • This song is about remembering what your main priority in life is,
  • And getting back to it.
-----------------------------------------
  • I'm needing to shuffle.
  • Shuffle my priorities.
  • because right now, I'm just shuffling from one habit to another,
  • and I'm wanting to rediscover what Toby Mac talks about here:
  • "The passion I can live for."
  • How about you?
------------------------------------------
  • You get to be my age and you forget a lot.
  • For instance, I keep forgetting that I was actually made for something.
  • Something great and grand and full of purpose.
  • I may have been made just to let you know that you are great and grand and full of purpose in God's eyes.
  • And I may have been made to introduce you to this song at this time...

    Scripture References

    Deuteronomy 31:6

    Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

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

    Phillippians 3:8-9

    What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.

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

    Psalm 139:14-16

    I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.   My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,   your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

    Your Own Experiences

    What do you feel made to do?   Are you doing it?   If not, are you at least aware that you’re ultimately made to love God?

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

    Have you had your passion for something ever die?   How did you make it through?   Share with the listener that God loves them just for who they are and not necessarily because of what they can do.

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

    If you look at the overall structure of this song’s lyrics, it takes you from a dream dying and then being brought back.   In-between that is a realization that you are made to love God, and to be loved by Him.   Talk about how you came to realize that God loved you through a dream you had that He made happen.
