Strengthening Faith Through the Unknown

I had a friend post that she had sung the song titled, Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United, in her church the on the first Sunday of the new year, January 1st. While the entire song is beautiful, these excerpts stood out to me:

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

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 made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I love these elements of the song, as it speaks to how God will be my guide, no matter what I am facing, each day. Reflecting on the line, “Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander,” stands out. Often, it is much easier to focus on the known, rather than the unknown. I know that this year, like every new year, will bring its share of new challenges and new experiences. I trust that through all of it, my faith will be made stronger.

You can find the song, here. And, the full lyrics on their site:
