Way Beyond Myself


I've been thinking it's about time

To win the war that fights against all the lies invading my mind
You have brought me to my senses
Even though You built this world to shake
You still love me in a personal way
So I think it's time to leave my doubt behind

There's so much more than meets the eye
Or what's going on inside
I believe in something way beyond myself
Like the wind that moves the leaves
Lord, You move me to my knees
I believe in something way beyond myself

Oh the way we build our empires hoping to impress our friends
We've forgotten how to inspire those who fall to rise again
Oh my God, You've built this world to shake
You still love me in a personal way

So I think it's time to leave my doubt behind

Storms are gonna come my way, I know
Some things are out of our control but there's a hope beyond myself
It's You and You will never let me go
Now I want my life to show You got me thinking beyond myself
Way beyond myself

There's so much more than meets the eye
Or what's going on inside
I believe in something way beyond myself
Like the wind that moves the leaves
Lord, You move me to my knees
I believe in something way beyond myself

I love this song right now. So many times God is so abstract to us. We go through the motions, we say our prayers, go to church, teach our kids, but God doesn't seem real. Look outside at the wind moving through the trees, that is how God breathes His Spirit on us everyday. If you can feel that wind with your skin, you can feel the breath of God with your heart. Let God be real to you!
