After spending some time this afternoon writing a long letter and email, I thought I’d better change clothes and eat some dinner so I’d be ready to leave for the movie Samaritan’s Purse is showing at Calvary Chapel San Antonio tonight. The CDs that had been playing all day in the living room were still going. I’ve heard these CDs many times, so the songs are all familiar. As I walked over to the work table where I had been packing boxes of things to give away, one of those familiar songs was playing. I love God’s sense of humor. The song was “If You Say Go,” and it goes like this:
If You say go, we will go
If You say wait, we will wait
If You say step out on the water
And they say it can’t be done
We’ll fix our eyes on You and we will come
Your ways are higher than our ways
And the plans that You have laid
Are good and true
If You call us to the fire
You will not withdraw Your hand
We’ll gaze into the flames and look for You
I don’t know who the author is. It might be a Vineyard song. The interesting thing, though, is that as that song was playing, I picked up the book The Divine Diet by Carole Lewis. I thought, “Oh, yeah, I wanted to read this.” I would guess it was not more than 10 or 15 seconds after hearing “Your ways are higher than our ways” that I opened the book, just to glance through it, and started reading a lady’s testimonial. What did she say? She quoted Isaiah 55:8, “My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts.”
Yes, Lord. I do know that’s true! Given last weekend’s post, you would be absolutely correct in guessing that the words of this song strongly resonate within me.
Have a blessed week!
