Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I made You promises a thousand times

I tried to hear from Heaven

But I talked the whole time

I think I made You too small

I never feared You at all No

If You touched my face would I know You?

Looked into my eyes could I behold You?

 

(CHORUS)

What do I know of You

Who spoke me into motion?

Where have I even stood

But the shore along Your ocean?

Are You fire? Are You fury?

Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?

What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

 

I guess I thought that I had figured You out

I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about

How You were mighty to save

Those were only empty words on a page

Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be

The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees

 

(CHORUS)

What do I know of You

Who spoke me into motion?

Where have I even stood

But the shore along Your ocean?

Are You fire? Are You fury?

Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?

What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

 

(CHORUS 2)

What do I know of Holy?

What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?

And a God who gave life "its" name?

What do I know of Holy?

Of the One who the angels praise?

All creation knows Your name

On earth and heaven above

What do I know of this love?

 

(CHORUS)

What do I know of You

Who spoke me into motion?

Where have I even stood

But the shore along Your ocean?

Are You fire? Are You fury?

Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?

What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

 

What do I know of Holy?

What do I know of Holy?

 

TID-bits

  • What do we know of a person’s heart?
  • We can never really see what’s inside it.
  • Instead we see only the face they show the world.
  • God, though, is just the opposite.
  • We don’t see His face, but we can know His heart,
  • and His heart, in addition to being holy, is full of love for you.

  • How often do we find that a celebrity isn’t necessarily who they show themselves to be?
  • We’ve come to expect the “spin.”
  • One of the things you can be sure about God is that there is no spin.
  • He his who He says He is,
  • and because He is Holy, He treats everyone the same...
  • ...with love
  • ...with compassion
  • ...with respect
  • That’s what I know about His Holiness.

 

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

 

  • The first verse where says “I tried to hear from Heaven, but I talked the whole time.”
  • The Bible in 1 Kings mentions Elijah didn’t hear God in an earthquake or a fire, it wasn’t until a whisper came along that He heard Him.
  • God shows up to us in the most unexpected ways, usually not in the fire or the fury of life, but usually when you take time to be still.

 

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

 

  • There’s a line here that says “Spoke me in motion.”
  • Often all you need to hear to get going again is a word from God.
  • And one of those words is this:  It doesn't matter what you've done, God still loves you.
  • You may not be holy, but you are loved and you are accepted.
