One of my favorite songs from Hillsong United is “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”

“Take the very hardest thing in your life – the place of difficulty, outward or inward, and expect God to triumph gloriously in that very spot. Just there He can bring your soul into blossom.”

 Lilias Trotter

This song was a living stone for me, and gave me the proper foundation of FAITH in a time when I needed it. I felt like the Lord sang it right into my heart as he reminded me of when the disciples faith was tested, and how we should respond – leading by faith through his belief that his Father in Heaven would protect him while walking on water. Jesus showed me during that time in my life that stretching your faith in God is a crucial test we all must endure on this journey, and when he calls us to follow him we must have faith no matter where he is leading us. I was in an abusive relationship during this time in my life, and my kid’s father was actively using meth. I struggled with what love meant during this season, and wasn’t sure whether to stay or go. The guilt and condemnation had me bound, unsure what to do. After getting raped and beaten one night, I was mentally fractured and it really felt like death had surrounded me. I prayed and fasted for 3 days. During that time I realized that not all love is love, and only God can define what that looks like and how to handle the situation I was in with grace as I handed the decision into his hands. It was a time that I needed to keep my eyes upon Him, and when I did, there was nothing to be afraid of when he asked me to come follow him, even when it was upon a raging sea. This song made me strong like a lion, and it was my battle cry! When I sang it, and pressed into the Lord’s love for me, the raging sea was surprisingly calm and crystal clear.

God has pre-planned for us to win our fights but that requires listening ears, good timing and a humble spirit. This song really helped me through my time of need, and it was the Lord that sang it to my heart. This song put me in the proper perspective, safe under eagle’s wings, soaring right over the chaos below with proper perspective and under his strength. I learned during this season of my life that when you add the Lord to your fight, it becomes F-Light … and that is how this song makes me feel – LIGHTER IN THE DARK. Ever step I took during that season was guided by his light, I only needed to allow him to carry me out of the storm. The footprints were not mine, but his … I just needed the faith to take the first step after I heard the word “Come and Follow Me”.

The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17
