Sabbath: "Oceans"

I wasn't really sure what I wanted to post today until I was worshiping at church and we sang the below song, which is apparently from Hillsong United.

(Lyrics found here)

"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)"

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

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

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

[3x]
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 will call upon Your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine 
We've sung this song before and even my Bible Study did an acoustic version of it one week but each time the chorus calls to me. I've struggled a lot this year and I want to reach a place where my trust is without borders again whether it's following God into international missions like we talked about at church today or ministry through work or whatever He has planned for me.
 Perhaps I was also inspired by the beautiful ocean I viewed yesterday, a view that tends to give me great peace. I hope everyone has had a restful and rejuvenating weekend :)
