Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

You always think I'm somewhere on a mountaintop

But never think behind bars

You'd be amazed the places that I go

To be with you, where you are

 

So forget what you've heard

What you think that you know

There's a lot about Me

That's never been told

 

CHORUS

I'm more than you dream

More than you understand

Your days and your times

Were destined for our dance

I catch all your tears

Burn your name on My heart

Be still and trust My plan

I'm more than you think I am

More than you think I am

 

Rumor has it there's a gavel in My hand

I'm only here to condemn

But let Me tell you secrets you have never known

I think of you as My best friend

 

So much has been said

Even done in My name

But I'm showing you now

Who I really am

 

CHORUS

 

Let me open your eyes to see

The heart of Me, differently oh oh

Come closer than you've ever been

Let Me in like never before

Bring Me every broken part

The wounds and scars of who you are

Hide in Me and you will see...

 

CHORUS

 

More than you think I am

More than you think I am

I'm more than you think I am

TID-bits

You know how you hear a song and you think you know what it says, but then you look at the lyrics and you discover that you weren’t even close?  There’s an instance of that in this song.  I thought he sang “Your days and your times were destined for YOUR HANDS.”   However the song says “Your days and your times were destined for OUR DANCE.”

That’s a big difference.

As I remember that this is a song sung by God to us, I find myself picturing the two of us dancing through life.  Having been to a number of weddings, I know that the Father/Daughter dance is one where Dad always leads.  I don’t usually see the child breaking away and doing a jitterbug or break dance on her own.  However in the dance of life, I will often find myself breaking away and trying to move at a tempo that is not where God is.

Here’s an example:  My son has been accepted into a particular school.  There is no way that I can afford it.  I’m scrambling and scheming and stressing to try and figure out how it’s all going to work.  What I fail to realize is that God has orchestrated the dance so far, and I need to keep in His embrace and let Him lead.  I shouldn’t go right when He wants to go left.

My days and my times are destined to be directed by God, and so are my son’s.  Days will go by like a dance. Left, right, left, left - at times spinning around faster than I’m comfortable with.  It’s OK as long as I hold on to Him.  Come to think of it, my days and my times are also destined for His hands too.  It’s good to know that He still leads and He still makes it right even when I get it wrong.
