02. Surrender

Wide-Eyed and Mystified
by downhere



 

Iím in a constant freefall
When Iím following You
Canít see the next stepís footing
But I know that You do
And life is all just a bunch of work
Nothing more than a climbing fall

Till I surrender, surrender, surrender
All these things to You
All my life to You, to You

I was a meteor burning
With a need for Your rescue
And itís the safest kind of falling
Now that Iím falling into You
And itís true I still donít have control
'Cause Youíve got it all along

So I surrender, surrender, surrender
All these things to You
All my life to You
All my dreams to You
I keep falling in surrender

I end where you begin
Lose it all to win
A constant realign
Beneath Your love divine
In this fall without a bottom
The deeper my surrender
The higher we will rise

Surrender
All these things to You
All my life to You

Surrender, surrender, surrender
All these things to You
All my life to You
All my dreams to You
I keep falling in surrender to You




Behind the Song:
"I walk a lot. I try to go for a 4-6 mile walk almost every day. I've heard it said that walking is like a constant free-fall. I like that idea because it makes something I already love even more exhilarating. Ok, maybe "exhilarating" is a strong word for it, but when you walk, your body is in motion. You're always falling forward, and it is only the act of putting one leg in front of the other on a firm surface that is preventing your body from hitting the ground and causing injury. I think that's a good way to talk about surrenderósurrender to God. I always hear people saying that surrender is the same as letting go, or giving in, but I think surrender is much more involved than that. It's much more deliberate. Surrendering is putting your life in someone's hands, and trusting them to do with it as they please. In my walk of life, I'm trusting that with each step, God will provide firm ground for me to move on. Now I don't know where my next step will land, but God gave me talents, desires, open and closed doors, to choose a particular direction, and in that direction, the ability to be faithful or unfaithful to Him. The Word of God says a lot about how I should walk, and the consequences of either putting my steps into His hands, or taking them in mine. The walk of surrender to the Almighty, though not remotely devoid of nicks and bruises, is really the safest kind of free-fall." - Marc Martel (downhere)
