Taking It Deeper


Everytime I try to play it safe
Holding back just a little part of me
I find myself forgetting what
I say that I believe
The promise of Your Word
Is all I need
I'll lay my life down
And give it up
I'll give it up
I wanna be reckless
Cause You are endless
I wanna be shameless
And shout Your greatness
I will not be afraid
To surrender my way
And follow who You are
I wanna be reckless, reckless
I will lose my life
And just let go
Because I know this world is not my home
With fearless faith
I won't be moved
Unshakeable inside Your truth
You laid Your life down
And gave it up
So I'll give it up
(Repeat Chorus)
I won't waste any more time
My life's Yours it is not mine
Use me Lord no matter what's at stake


  • Quick - try to remember what you got for Christmas!
  • The further away we get from December 25th, the harder it is to remember.
  • So you can probably relate when this (that) song says “I find myself forgetting what I say that I believe."
  • It's because we often forget that which is most meaningful to us.
  • For instance we know that God loves us unconditionally, but we tend to not live that way on a daily basis.
  • This (That) song invites you to remember and live in the love God has for you.


  • What are your plans for God?
  • What do you plan for Him to do for you?
  • I think that's where most of us like to live, because it seems safe when we lay out our life's plan for God to follow step by step.
  • This (That) song has it the other way around.   It talks about us being reckless when we decide to trust in God to lay out the plan.
  • It's a way that seems frightening to us, because we have to give up control.
  • But it is a way that is ultimately safe, because it allows the one who has our total interest at heart to have total control.


  • We have a natural fear of recklessness.
  • We don't drive recklessly, and if we're smart we're careful when we climb a ladder.
  • We also remind our kids not to run through the house with toys because something might slip and break.
  • This (that) song reminds us that it's OK to be reckless in one regard, though, and you want to know what it is?
  • It's in trusting God to lead you to a better place.
