Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

This is where it begins
This is where all the worry ends
This is where I say
I don't need to have control
 
This is where I admit
I don't know how to handle it
Life in all of its chaos
You are my only hope
 
And all that I have offer
Is the white flag of surrender
 
(Chorus)
So take me to the middle of Your heart
Lead me to wherever Your love starts
To a new day dawning
To the place You are
And if You wanna take me over the edge
I'll let You because Your love is where I'll land
Wanna be right where You are
In middle of Your heart
 
This what I believe
That if I give You my everything
I will become who I was really born to be
 
I'll stand up to say it
Yeah, Your love is something I can put my faith in
 
(Repeat Chorus)
 
I carried what I carried
But now I can let it go
Yeah I carried what I carried
But now I can let it go
Now I can let it go
 
(Repeat Chorus)

TID-bits

  • This (That) song makes me think of those safety nets the firefighters use.
  • Specifically where it says: "And if you want to take me over the edge, I'll let you, 'cause Your love is where I'll land.
  • It also talks about letting go.
  • To jump away from a place that will harm us requires a leap of faith that He will catch you.
  • And God, in His love for you, will ALWAYS catch you.

  • Have you ever bounced on a trampoline?
  • You know then that the best spot is right in the middle.
  • It's the best and most safest place to land.
  • Think about that when you hear the chorus of this song
  • Once you've landed safely in the middle of His heart, you can be bounced into a new day dawning,
  • Plus it's great to know that He's under you to keep you flying.

  • Have you ever seen one of those coin spinners in a store?  Charities use them to collect money.
  • It's a thing where you roll a coin down a ramp, and it rolls into a giant funnel, and as the coin gets closer to the center it seems to roll faster and faster until it drops into the hole.
  • It reminds me of this (that) song, especially when it talks about letting God take us over the edge, because His love is where we'll land.
  • If we're living life the way God wants us to live, we'll be like that coin, spinning around in life, spinning faster and faster, and hopefully always spinning back to the middle of His heart.

  • To me, I hear a song about parenting when I hear this.
  • It talks about giving up control, and realizing you don't know how to handle it, which is where a child lives on a daily basis - having to trust in a parent every day.
  • And it talks about going over the edge - like a child leaving the nest, but always having a place of love to come back to.
  • Then it talks about becoming who you were born to be, which is hopefully what a good parent will help their child do.
  • That's one thing I got out of this song when I first heard it - what about you?

    Joshua 1:9  

    Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

    Psalm 37:3-6

    Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

    Your Own Experiences

    Have you ever given up what you thought you were supposed to be, to become who you were truly supposed to be?   For instance, I thought I was destined to rise the ranks of a certain corporation, but God said I had talents and abilities in radio.  If you have a story like that, encourage a listener who may be struggling to find their way.  You can point them to these words found in this song:  "This what I believe. That if I give You my everything.  I will become who I was really born to be."

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

    What is something you lost control of?  Something that only God could put back together?  Talk about how you had to let go of that thing and hold on to God instead.

    Talk about your last plane trip, and how you love the certainty of those wheels touching down on the runway.  When we are in a plane, only the pilot is in control, and the passengers are in states of uncertainty.  You don't know what's ahead, where exactly you are, etc.  Compare that to this song.  We are all in some state of flying through life, and we have to trust in the pilot - God - who will bring our wheels back to the ground.
