Over My Head

“In Over My Head”
Bethel Music

I have come to this place in my life
I’m full but I’ve not satisfied
This longing to have more of You
And I can feel it my heart is convinced
I’m thirsty my soul can’t be quenched
You already know this but still
Come and do whatever You want toI’m standing knee deep but I’m out where I’ve never been
And I feel You coming and I hear Your voice on the windWould you come and tear down the boxes that I have tried to put You in
Let love come teach me who You are again
Would you take me back to the place where my heart was only about You
And all I wanted was just to be with You
Come and do whatever You want to

And further and further my heart moves away from the shore
Whatever it looks like, whatever may come I am Yours
And further and further my heart moves away from the shore
Whatever it looks like, whatever may come I am Yours

Then You crash over me and I’ve lost control but I’m free
I’m going under, I’m in over my head
Then you crash over me, and that’s where You want me to be
I’m going under, I’m in over my head
Whether I sink, whether I swim
It makes no difference when I’m beautifully in over my head
Whether I sink, whether I swim
It makes no difference when I’m beautifully in over my head
I’m Beautifully in over my head
I’m Beautifully in over my head

This song has totally rocked my world.
I have highlighted the parts that really speak to me (which could honestly be the entire song); however, one of my favorites is:
Then You crash over me and I’ve lost control but I’m free
I’m going under, I’m in over my head
There is something about being swept up. We get swept up in a lot of things: relationships, money, work, kids, hobbies, etc.
But how often do we allow ourselves to be swept up in Jesus?
I have been walking through a difficult season the past 2 months, and I was not allowing Jesus to overtake me. However, last night I was at a prayer group where this song was played, and I can promise you…He crashed over me. I felt like I was drowning in the ocean being continuously hit by waves of love, grace, and healing. I love when God does that. He just sweeps you straight up to heaven. I felt so safe. I felt loved. I felt adored. I felt free.
True freedom in Jesus is when we totally give up control and let Him sweep us off our feet.
I knew in that moment that my circumstance was irrelevant to what God was doing. God knew where I was, and He was ready to meet me there. I wonder what would happen if we told God, “Come and do whatever you want to”
I pray that God takes us to a place of giving up control and letting Him crash into us. Its so beautiful to be in over your head with Jesus. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Let Him carry your circumstance. He is big enough to do it, and He wants to.
