Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I've got waves that are tossin' me,
Crashin' all over my beliefs,
And in all sincerity, Lord,
I wanna be yours,
So pull me out of this mess I'm in,
Cause I know I'm wanderin'
Lead my soul back home again,
I've always been yours,
 
And this world may push, may pull,
But your love it never fails,
 
You lead, I'll follow, Your hands hold my tomorrow,
Your grip, Your grace, You know the way,
You guide me tenderly,
When you lead, I'll follow,
Just light the way and I'll go,
Cause I know what you got for me is more than I can see,
So lead me on, on, on and on,
Just lead me on, on, on and on,
 
As a child I heard your voice,
But as a girl I made my choice,
There is no other way for me,
I'm devoted to you,
You're my peace on the heavy days,
You're the warmth of an autumn blaze,
Your love carries me away,
And it's never too soon, no...
 
And this world may push, may pull,
But your mercy never fails,
 
You lead, I'll follow, Your hands hold my tomorrow,
Your grip, Your grace, You know the way,
You guide me tenderly, yeah,
When you lead, I'll follow,
Just light the way and I'll go,
Cause I know what you got for me is more than I can see,
So lead me on, on, on and on,
Just lead me on, on, on and on,
 
Sometimes when I wake up, I don't wanna rise up, Out of my bed, too many thoughts in my head,
Don't wanna be who I used to be,
Gonna take the back seat and let you lead,
And I...
Need to stop, need to stop,
Cause I'm going too fast,
And I...
Know my God is still God, And you got my back,
 
You lead, I'll follow, Your hands hold my tomorrow,
Your grip, Your grace, You know the way,
You guide me tenderly, yeah,
When you lead, I'll follow,
Just light the way and I'll go,
Cause I know what you got for me is more then I can see,
So lead me on...
Lead me on...
 
And I...
Need to stop, need to stop,
Cause I'm going too fast,
And I...
Know my God is still God, And you got my back,
You got my back,
I know ya got me, I know ya got me,
I know ya got me, Lead me on...

TID-bits

  • We don’t tend to think about gravity.
  • But it’s there with every step
  • Holding us to the earth.
  • It’s just like God’s grace
  • Which is another invisible force holding on to us.
  • Aren’t you glad you’re in His grip?

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

  • When you take a horse by the reins he tends to trust his master and go where he leads.
  • A donkey on the other hand tends to be more stubborn.
  • Only by trusting in the master’s lead will any work get accomplished.
  • So are you feeling more like a horse or a donkey today?
----------------------------
  •  Do you feel like your life is at a crossroads and you’re not sure which direction to take?
  • Maybe the way to solve that dilemma is to take yourself out of the equation.
  • And the way you do that is to ask “God, which way will glorify you more.”
  • He’ll always lead you in that way.

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

  • There are three letters you need to remember:
  • N.F.Y.
  • They stand for “Not Finished Yet.”
  • If you’re struggling because you don’t know which direction God is going to take you, then you’re in an “N.F.Y.” time.
  • Just keep repeating that to yourself to give you hope.
  • And for right now, you can get a little comfort when you hear in this song about how His hands hold your tomorrow...

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

  • If you want your grass to grow, you have to direct (or lead) the sprinklers to deliver water where it’s needed.
  • Same thing with your life. You have to allow God to water you in those places where you need to grow.

    Your Own Experiences

    Talk about a time you regretted following the crowd.   Did it play a factor in you deciding to follow Jesus?

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

    How is God leading you this week

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

    Pick a story from the Bible like Moses or David.   Mention that these were people who put an emphasis on letting God lead.   Talk about how God can do something extraordinary through people who let Him be in charge.

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

    Talk about “the yoke of God”   How a yoke is a collar that allows an ox to be steered, and how God says His yoke is easy and His burden is light.   Mention the benefit of being yoked to Him, and how that allows Him to easily direct you.
