“Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”
Lyrics by Hillsong

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
Oceans
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 mineOceans
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 nowOceans
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
Oceans
Spirit lead me where my trust is without boarders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever you will call me
Take me deeper than me feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior.
Oceans The words to this song have been my prayer for a few months now for no other particular reason except to grow closer to Christ.  I sing it as my prayer to him…”Lord, lead me to a place where my trust has no boarders, no limitations to what you can do.  Let me walk upon the waters, in faith, wherever you want me to go.  Take me deeper in my faith with you, so much deeper than my feet could ever wander.  Don’t let my influence be wider than my character is deep.  In that, I know my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.”
Oceans What I failed to remember is that He will answer prayers in his own way.  He is answering that prayer right now.  He has called me out upon the waters, the stormy waters, of watching my brother fight for his life in ICU.  This is a place where my feet will fail.  It is out of my control, my knowledge, my experience.  My faith in Him to take care of my brother is being exercised to trust without any boarders.  It’s simply, “I trust in you God. PERIOD.”  No if’s, and’s, or but’s.  I am LIVING this song right now.  I am calling upon his name, when oceans rise, I keep my eyes above the waves, and I rest in his embrace.
OceansJust like in Matthew chapter 14 when Jesus called Peter out of the boat to walk on the water with Him, he was able to through faith.  When Peter saw the wind around him, he started to sink.  Jesus came to his rescue and asked, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”  I don’t want to be a Peter.  I WILL decide every time fear sets in to keep my eyes above the waves…on Jesus.  Because I am His…and He is mine.  The deepest waters are where His grace abounds.  His sovereign hand will be my guide.  I will have child like faith to trust that my Daddy will not fail, because he never has.
OceansAfter thinking about how God parted the Red Sea for Moses to lead his people away from the Egyptians, I had a vision.  There was a storm, with dangerous waves tossing about in the ocean.  Jesus was in front of me, holding my hand, pulling and guiding me through the waters….on dry land.  The waves parted and were still violently raging, but we were safe.  I was following Him.  My eyes were fixed on Him.  And I was ok.
