Lyrical Thursdays: Touch the Sky

Good morning!

Today is a good day for some song lyrics.

The song for the day is Hillsong United's "Touch the Sky." 

Here's an honest confession:  my eyes will literally tear up when I hear this song.  It is an honest prayer and a cry out to God of the realization that we need Him.  We need Him.  We cannot "do" life alone.  We're not designed to do so.  He created us to need Him and to rely on Him.

This song is just honest, and I think all of us can relate to it.  The song starts by admitting that we get caught up in the world's jewels.  We try to keep up with the Joneses.  *I'm raising my hand over here* We trade our self-worth for fleeting objects.  But you know what?  Jesus loves us still.  He rescues us.  He wages war for us.  He traded Heaven to have us again.  

You guys-- this song captures the rawness of life and the pure yearning that each of us have to be filled.  Earthly things will not fill up the space inside us.  Only God will.  A God who loves you.  He made you.  He cares for you.  He will rescue you. 

Read the lyrics as you listen to this song and I pray that it speaks to you as it did for me.

"Touch The Sky"

What fortune lies beyond the stars
Those dazzling heights too vast to climb
I got so high to fall so far
But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars
This gift of freedom gold can't buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky
When my knees hit the ground

*****



Until Next Time,

Much love,
Reba
