Oceans

Oceans

This summer I started singing this song. As I sang it with all my heart I asked myself did I really mean the lyrics, did I understand the magnitude of being led beyond what I knew or trusted. In the moment I thought of course, what could possibly be worse then the things I’ve been through…whether trekking through the jungles of Papua New Guinea or protecting myself from loved ones… of course. What else could possibly come my way…

Little did I know that in my womb was journey that would take me here…to the great unknown. Where my feet have failed and fear has surrounded…far beyond the borders of my trust. As the countdown ends I sing this still, with more of my heart because His grace has abounded in deepest waters. His sovereign hand has been my guide each and everyday… even the days I didn’t feel it.

My faith has been made stronger in the constant presence of my Savior.

For the next 5 days I will continue to call upon His Name and keep my eyes above the waves. My soul will rest in His embrace because at the end of this…whether my arms are empty or wrapped around my baby girl…
I am His…
And He is mine.

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
[x6]

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine
