Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

Sometimes the day won't ever end

Sometimes you just throw up your hands

It's the little things sometimes

 

Sometimes the world has just gone dark

Sometimes you’re praying for a spark

It's the little things sometimes

 

But if you lift your eyes

See it in a different light

Just a cloud up in the open sky

Let the rain, fall away

Cause today is beautiful

 

Lift your eyes

See it in a different light

Just a cloud up in the open sky

Let the rain, fall away

Cause today is beautiful

 

Right now it feels so hard to breathe

Right now you're asking God why me

It's what you can see right now

 

Cause right now there's a greater truth

Right now there's a bigger view

Than what you can see right now

 

But if you lift your eyes

See it in a different light

Just a cloud up in the open sky

Let the rain, fall away

Cause today is beautiful

 

Lift your eyes

See it in a different light

Just a cloud up in the open sky

Let the rain, fall away

Cause today is beautiful

 

If you see more than what's in front of you

You might see more of heavens view

If you see more than what's in front of you

You might see more of heavens view

 

So lift your eyes

See it in a different light

Just a cloud up in the open sky

Let the rain, fall away

Cause today is beautiful

 

Lift your eyes

See it in a different light

Just a cloud up in the open sky

Let the rain, fall away

Cause today is beautiful

TID-bits

Sometimes we get just a little bit depressed.  Perhaps we feel unappreciated, or un-needed.  In reality, we know it's not the case.  We know that our contributions would be missed if we weren't around.  We just get a little black rain cloud following us through a particular day.

That's why I like this song.  It reminds me that the down feelings I'm going through are only clouds -  and no matter how big a cloud may seem, it is still small compared to the whole big sky around it

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Romans 15:4

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.

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

Psalm 27:4-5

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.

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

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.

Psalm 18:19

He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.

One Response so far.

  1. Eeyore tends to walk around with a black cloud over his head….when the sky over the Hundred Acre Wood is clear and beautiful. Our attitude about our issues in life do the same thing to our otherwise beautiful day. So take David Dunn’s advice and lift your eyes to see things in a different light!
