02. Like I Never Felt Before

Whispered And Shouted
by Aaron Shust



 

(Been) training all this time
Iím at the starting line
A marathon Iím gonna have to run
In such a way as if to win the prize
And I believe
Even though I canít see
All the athletes from days gone by
Are in the stadium surrounding me
And in the days
before the final phase
I sacrificed the things that held me down
And concentratedly I fixed my gaze.
A shot resounds
My heart begins to pound
And I begin to know what itís like
To run as if I had nobody around
And I feel like I never felt before
I ran through the open door
And I feel like I never felt before
And it seems Youíre aware of so much more
Than I gave You credit for
And I feel like I never felt before

Climbing high
I can almost touch the sky
But every time Iím halfway there
I think Iíll never reach the top alive
But Iím aware
Iím safely in Your care
And with Your help Iíll never face a day
That I am unable to bear
You taught me to crawl/ You taught be to stand
You taught me run one step at a time/and watch out for the quicksand
You taught me to live/ You taught me to die
You taught me to spread My wings and how to fly





Behind the Song:
"The author of the book of Hebrews portrays a scene of great excitement and anticipation when describing the life of a follower of Christ. He says that we are a part of a massive race and are surrounded by heroes of great faith in God, cheering us on in our own lives. The Message says it this way: ďDo you see what this meansóall these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means weíd better get on with it. Strip down, start runningóand never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, Who both began and finished this same race that we are in. Study how He did it. Because He never lost sight of where He was headedóthat exhilarating finish in and with God. He could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now He is there, in the place of honor, right alongside God the Father. When you find yourself flagging in your faith, go over that story again, line by line, and review that long litany of hostility that He plowed through, for us. That should shoot some adrenaline into your soulsĒ (Heb. 12:1-3)." - Aaron Shust
