Monday Musings: Voices...

Songs can be so powerful.  When lyrics are paired with music, it speaks to the soul.  But, sometimes, when those lyrics are separated from the music and we read and focus on them, it speaks even deeper.  I have often found it so moving to reflect on song lyrics, so that is what I'm posting today.  

Yesterday morning, while I was out running...yes...me...running...I know, shocking...I heard this song on pandora.  Of course, I've heard it many times before, but yesterday it struck me differently so I'm sharing it with you today.  Even if you've heard it before, take time to really read the words (and if you have any thoughts, feel free to share them with us).


Oh what I would do to have the kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I'm in onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out His hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed 
The waves they keep on telling me 
Time and time again, "Boy, you'll never win."
"You'll never win."

But the voice of Truth tells me a different story
And the voice of Truth says, "Do not be afraid."
And the voice of Truth says, "This is for My glory."
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of Truth.

Oh what I would do to have the kind of faith it takes
To stand before a giant.
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors, shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand.

But the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed.
The giant keeps on telling me time and time again,
"Boy, you'll never win.  You'll never win."

But the voice of Truth tells me a different story
And the voice of Truth says, "Do not be afraid."
And the voice of Truth says, "This is for My glory."
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of Truth.

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus singing over me


But the voice of Truth tells me a different story
And the voice of Truth says, "Do not be afraid."
And the voice of Truth says, "This is for My glory."
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of Truth.
