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
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
(Hillsong United, Oceans)
Oh my. What a prayer. What truth.
This morning I’m feeling heavier than usual. Discouraged that we still have not received the ok to pick up our son. There is a sense of urgency, desperation for him to be with us, his family. I can’t seem to stop the tears.
In the midst of this heaviness, I am still God’s and God is still mine. He is my Savior. My Redeemer. My Strength. My wisdom. My Shepherd. My all.
The plans for my life and my son’s life were planned even before we were born (Psalm 139:16). He knows the exact moment when our lives will physically intersect.
Until that day I will continue to pray that He will “keep my eyes above the waves” (Psalm 25:25, Romans 8:5-11, Hebrews 12:2, Psalms 16:8, Colossians 3:2, Phillipians 4:8).
I will trust that “my soul will rest in your embrace” (Matthew 11:28-30, John 16:33).
I will believe that “my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my savior” (1 Peter 1:3-9).
