I love this song:
I remember being in tears over it late last year because I could not get my heart to sing the chorus:
“Spirit, lead me where my trust in without border
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”
Oh, to have that kind of faith, a faith that is not stopped by terrifying waves because He is there in the midst, because He is calling; a faith that knows Him to be faithful no matter what; a faith that simply knows Him. Because in knowing Him, we are safe. Because in knowing He is with us, the size of the storm does not matter.
Oh, what joy that must be, to rest in His embrace when hell is breaking loose.
It took me days of working with Him to get to the place where I could sing these words with all my heart. And then I could not stop singing them, praying them, speaking them.
And the Lord heard me.
I have walked where I certainly would have drown if I had not kept my eyes on Him this year. I have found a trust in Him that is beyond my own ability to trust. I have gone where no man could make me go, but He called and His grace took me there. And my faith in Him, it is more precious than ever. It is sweet, and tender like a lamb, but strong and fierce like a lion. Because I know Him in a way I never knew Him before. I know that His hand is upon me, and I need not fear where He leads.
I have rested in His embrace in the midst of the storm. Because I know He is mine, and I am His.
