Your Grace Abounds In Deepest Waters



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

When I was young I stood at the sink washing dishes when suddenly the drinking glass I was cleaning shattered in my hand. As I was pulling my hand out of the water, a jagged piece of glass caught my right hand and sliced it wide open, just underneath my thumb.
I’ll never forget that day, because at the first sight of blood I passed out cold.
The sight of that gash in my hand was more than my mind…or my heart…could take.
And dreaming? It feels just like being cut right in two. We have the choice to live life God’s way or the world’s.
It’s living a life that has meaning and purpose ordained by God in a “me-first” world that values material success and fame at all costs more than the individual person.

I’ve had dreams and plans fail when I was certain they were from God. (<====Tweet This)
I'm writing over at God-sized Dreams today as part of the Oceans series, will you join me over there to read the rest?

  1. Are journeys are sounding very similar. Only this is the year that God is really calling me into brave waters. Our church sings this song all the time. Love it.

  3. Alicia, this subject just makes me want to scream right now. I feel like I have had the green button to dream and it feels so big and overwhelming, just one BIG missing piece and I think it's just that putting the foot to the water and the waters will part. I tell the Lord each day, 'I want to be brave'......
