SONG OF THE WEEK: Walk on the Water by Britt Nicole

So when was the last time you walked on the water?  When was the last time Jesus called you to step out of your cozy comfort zone and come towards Him in the middle of a storm?  Maybe you invited your neighbor to an event up at church or you offered to pray for a coworker facing a hard time.  Maybe you got help for a problem you know has been pulling your life off track.  Britt Nicole uses her soothing yet passionate voice to identify with the fears of walking towards Christ.   It’s like she says “Your insecurities they try to hold to you.”

This song softly nestles into my mind and then it’s like a shout out right into my soul– “What are you waiting for?”  Before I know it, I’m singing along and wondering the same thing.

You look around, staring back at you
Another wave of doubt, will it pull you under? You wonder
What if I’m overtaken? What if I never make it?
What if no one’s there? Will You hear my prayer?

When you take that first step into the unknown
You know that He won’t let you go

So what are you waiting for? What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities, they try to hold to you
But you know you’re made for more, so don’t be afraid to move
Your faith is all it takes, and you can walk on the water, too

Don’t ignore your call to walk on the water and draw closer to your Lord.  Amen to that!
