hope“Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders.

Let me walk upon the waters wherever you may call me.”

 

 

I’m watching the world and what I see leads me to think that every believer is being led to a deeper place. A place where faith dictates the next step. I don’t know what that looks like for you, and surely all of our stories are different in some way, but we have common ground in that there’s a hunger to leave behind the fake and empty life and go farther in truth than we even know is possible.

 

There’s more.

 

God is real.

 

And eternity is coming at us so much faster than it ever has before. Is there something inside you reaching forward? Is there some magnanimous movement spreading across the globe through us who know the truth? Is it possible that these are the days of trimmed and ready lamps and opening up our mouths and hands and feet to shout that the bridegroom will be here soon?

 

I don’t know, but I do know that the song I’ve chosen for Tuneful Tuesday is both wildly popular and speaks to a life lived in faith and raw trust in a holy God who stays by our side. Why are Christians all over the world embracing this song? It could just be that it’s a great song, or maybe it’s God’s Spirit among us tending to the soil in our hearts that we would stop waiting for something to happen and start making things happen.

 

“Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.” James 2:18

Most of what I do is safe and predictable, but I’m aching to break down those borders and walk on unfamiliar ground. Maybe the time is now. Maybe today is the day we stop waiting to have the faith to heal and build and grow and challenge. Maybe today is the day we step out, and though our feet may fail, we find the water firm and his promises true.

 

What do you think? Shall we go out on the ocean?

 

Close your eyes and listen to this song and listen to the Spirit. May God guide you with his sovereign hand and never stop.

Mary Beth, thank you so much for introducing me to this fabulous song. I’ve listened to it several times today and it really speaks to me. Your words — once again — are just what I need to hear. You make a difference to me.
