Spirit Moments - "Where Feet May Fail..."
Open your heart, close your eyes and listen to this song. Once it's done, open your eyes and continue reading some of the thoughts and verses that I am sharing...my hope is that through my raw vulnerability, you too will feel God's perfect love and grace, even in our mess.
I don't know about you, but this song speaks to the center of my soul. It shares so many things that my heart longs for...It is my heart's desire to go deeper in Jesus, to be lead further than I could imagine, and have faith worthy of where He is leading. So much of my life, I struggled with feeling worthy...worthy of love, worthy of abundance, worthy of forgiveness and grace...
One of my favorite lines in this song is "your grace abounds in deepest waters." Oh how this one line has reassured me in the darkest of nights when my mind races down a road it shouldn't be on...when my mind tells me I'm not good enough, not strong enough, that I'm no good, that I'm a failure and no one loves me.
John 16:33 says "...In Me, you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer - take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted! for I have overcome the world. I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you." (AMP).
This brings peace to my heart when I am in over my head. I can "keep my eyes above the waves." It reassures me that when I mess up, there is always grace because I'm not perfect and never will be. And that's ok. I'm finally ok with that. I can be my real, authentic, raw, flawed imperfect self because when I am a hot mess, Jesus turns it into a message. "Each time he said, My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me." 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLT)
Grace abounding in deep waters brings hope when all that is going on in this world seems hopeless because He is victorious, and in Him, I am too. So are you.
So my prayer for myself, and for you, is that "where my feet may fail," that our faith and trust will be strong enough to move the mountains and barriers that our mind makes up; that we will be as bold as a lion and step into the courage and strength Christ commands of us in Joshua 1:9; that we embrace our weakness and our mess because that's when God's strength and perfect plan comes forth...into the deep...into a place without boarders, into the presence of Jesus.
