From the first time I heard Oceans to the last time I heard it which was literally a few minutes ago, I still am in awe that it always helps usher me in to a different place within worship. The words of Oceans are not meant to just be sung but to be lived.
"SPIRIT LEAD ME WHERE MY TRUST IS WITHOUT BORDERS, LET ME WALK UPON THE WATERS WHERE EVER YOU WILL CALL ME"
I truly love this song but I tell people to be cautious of singing the words and using it for worship if they are not ready to live it out. It is a COMFORT ZONE KILLER. I've been out of my comfort zones plenty of times but lately, I've felt the nudge that I'm comfortable and it's time to shift. Part of me wants to pout and another part wants me to celebrate because it means there's something new for me to experience and learn. As I begin to leave my comfort zone again, I use this song as a reminder of how we all have to leave the zone and let the spirit lead us. The question is...will we leave or will we stay? When was the last time you were in a comfort zone and are you ready to leave it?
My favorite version of Oceans.
