Amazed. Always. At the many ways the Lord speaks.

My prayers lately have centered around asking for and listening for the Lord’s voice concerning the next steps in answering His call to ministry on our lives. This was my devotion on Saturday night:

“…help me stay focused…remain determined…keep pushing ahead…never let go…”

Ok, Lord. I will.

And then yesterday my dad, daughter and I made a whirlwind trip to Indy to visit my friend Jenny and we visited a newer church in the area. They played a song I hadn’t yet heard. And in the lyrics I heard the Lord again.

“Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”

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

(Italics Mine)

As we sang the bridge (italicized), I leaned over to Jenny and said, “appropriate.”

I just can’t get those words out of my head, particularly the idea “lead me where my trust is without borders.” I hadn’t really thought in those terms before, but it is true, we trust God when it fits into what we have decided this neat little box is that we want to live in, but outside of that, it is hard to trust because it is the unknown.

So this is the song on repeat in my office today, as well as the prayer on repeat in my mind today.

Where do you need to “open up” the borders of your trust in the Lord today?
