music monday// oceans

it's mondayyy! let's have some music that speaks to our souls. :)

there are times and seasons when God asks us to make some choices, changes, moves, and we become really scared of the unknown. i'm right there in one of those seasons. as much as i would want to have things go my way and be 'safe' and 'comfortable', God is just like, no, no, no. I need you to be here in this for a purpose, Gen. it's going to be tough, but you will overcome, just trust Me. you need to pass this test and grow in Me. I'm refining and pruning you, you'll be fine if you keep your eyes on Me. 
and i know it's wise for me to listen to Him and obey, although it's not as easy as i want things to be. i trust that He's not allowing me to go through this season because He disdainfully wants me to suffer, no. i believe He's got a lot to teach me with all of what's going on with me, and i will overcome with Him guiding my steps. i will survive this and leave people wondering how i did it. i'm in a process of refinement. :) 

and He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." therefore, most gladly i will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

i love oceans. it reminds me that grace {unmerited favor} is available for me when i'm faced with uncertainties, doubts, fear. it reminds me that God's grace makes me strong when i'm weak and feel super fragile for this big, uncertain world. 


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.

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.




"Lord, if it's You," peter replied, "tell me to walk on the water." "come," He said. then peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towards Jesus. but when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him. "you of little faith," He said, "why did you doubt?" matthew 14:28-31

enjoy your day. :)

  4. I love this song Gen! We sing it often at praise and worship in church... I cry every time. It's such an intimate expression of love and prayer. Gives me goosebumps every time I hear it too.

    I love your message of trusting in God. I don't know how I "survived" before without Him. Knowing that I can trust Him with everything gives me such peace that I would have never thought possible. Even in the midst of trials, there's still peace in Him.

    Blessings to you.
