Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

There are days of taking more than I can give

And there are choices that I made that I wouldn't make again

I've had my share of laughter

Of tears and troubled times

This has been the story of my life

 

I have won

And I have lost

I got it right sometimes, but sometimes I did not

Life's been a journey

I've seen joy, I've seen regret

Oh, and You have been my God through all of it

 

You were there when it all came down on me

When I was blinded by my fear and I struggled to believe

But in those unclear moments You were the one keeping me strong

This is how my story's always gone

 

I have won

And I have lost

I got it right sometimes, but sometimes I did not

Life's been a journey

I've seen joy, I've seen regret

Oh, and You have been my God through all of it

Oh, through all of it

 

And this is who You are, more constant than the stars

Up in the sky, all these years, all my life

I, I look back and I see You

Right now I still do

And I'm always going to

 

I have won

And I have lost

I got it right sometimes, but sometimes I did not

Life's been a journey

I've seen joy, I've seen regret

Oh, and You have been my God through all of it

Oh, and You have been my God through all of it

Oh, and You have been my God through all of it

TID-bits

 

There are a lot of Acronym’s for the word “Faith.”  Here are a few:

Forsaking All I Trust Him

Fantastic Adventures In Trusting Him

For All I Trust Him

Find Assurance In Trusting Him

Full Assurance In Trusting Him

Forever Always I Trust Him

For Anything Impossible I Trust Him

Fully Anticipating It To Happen

and

Fear Ain’t In This House

Not only is “Faith” a word that means trusting God, but it is also a verb; It’s something we have to walk out.  This song talks about that walk, and about the journey that is sometimes good, and sometimes bad.  

Listen to this song and take a moment to remember a time when you walked through faith before, then thank God that in faith He will walk you through again.
