Jackie’s Line Up: March 16, 2014

While perusing through Facebook this week I saw a post that reminded me of “Oceans.” As I remembered it, I played the song and just started meditating on the lyrics…the whole song is compelling, but the part that most resonated with me was this: “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 make stronger, in the presence of my Savior.”
Trusting and following God on that level is not at easy task. It’s challenging when I lose focus and, like Peter, start to sink in the water. Although Jesus is there, my faith sometimes wavers because I forget who my God is and what he’s so capable of. It’s such a blessing to have moments to reflect on the past and realize that my God deserves better – my full and undivided focus and faith in Him.
One time we had a guest comment about the songs sung by the modern church. He felt they were too personal, too individually minded for corporate worship. Bro. Aggie made an interesting point. He said that it’s also good to sing songs about what we’re aspiring to be/hope to be someday. I feel like “Oceans” is that for me, I want to be the version of Peter that has grown from his sinking days and has learned how to fully trust, the way God deserves.

Matthew 14: 22-33 22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.

27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

29 “Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
