Oceans-Knowing the Mystery of God in the Midst of Deep Waters


How many times have I seen this process at work in my life? Early on when the deep waters came, I got a mouthful of sand  as I went under and bailed out, missing  out on seeing that God was revealing a new side of Himself to me. I failed the test and missed out on the blessing and spent 15 years wandering in the Sinai Desert -- far from the refreshment of ocean water.  Now, through pain, God is once more taking me deep into the mystery of Himself...

"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)"          


Hillsong United


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)

Oh, Jesus, you're my God!

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 
Thank you God, for your embrace and for the lessons in walking on  water.  Thank you for your presence amidst the deep water.  Thank you for the depths of your mystery--where I plunge deep into your love and find it never ends: I never can run short of it and the deeper the water, the deeper You take me into you love. I am Yours and You are mine!
