Spoke to me: Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)

by FeR on November 16, 2016 in blabs

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 Saviour

– Hillsong UNITED –

This song was the first song that came up on Spotify when I started my walk around the Blue Lake today. 

I feel lost in my first few steps. I wondered what am I doing here and have I (yet again) set myself up to live life alone. Starting over and making new friends are not my strengths. I used to think I was pretty good in making new friends but I must’ve mistaken it with making new acquaintances. I see people walking with friends or family or loved ones and I see my one lonesome shadow. When this part came up, something clicked in me. Step. Step. Step. With every step, I have to remind myself that I’m not doing this alone. If I have prayed for it, then I had better step into it without hesitation or doubt. With every step, I remember praying for God to call me out of my comfort zone and to be used for His glory. 

Maybe what I’m doing now is something I’ve prayed for. Maybe what I’m doing now is answering that call to “walk upon the waters”. I remember listening to this song over and over again after watching the Hillsong movie, I even shared the song on Facebook. 10 days after that, I handed in my notice. I also submitted my application to UTAS today. If all goes well, I will definitely need a new computer by February. 

Everything happened really quickly that I’m not even sure if I really thought it through. Perhaps with my tendency to over-analyse, this quick decision-to-action is a good thing. Perhaps I’ve done so much thinking in the last couple of years that I need not think too much now. Just keep moving forward.  

I’m self doubting, for sure, but I’m thankful to know that there is no doubting in what God can do. I will continue to take my steps. By faith.
