Faith Maker

Ok, it is day 6 of 7 in 7 and I just finished song #2. It's called Faith Maker. I have been learning so much about taking steps of faith. It's terrifying and everything in me fights against it. I think a lot about Peter stepping out of the boat. I think that Jesus didn't let Peter walk on water because Peter had enough faith. I think He called Peter out of the boat to teach him about faith and to provide an opportunity to breath more faith into Peter. Out came this song about walking on water and trusting the Faith Maker.

Everything in me says
It’s impossible
Everyone around says
I’m a fool if I try
Everything I’ve ever known
Points to failure
And I sure comfortable
Right where I am

I’m gonna take just one nervous step onto the waters
Just one timid step onto the seas
I can barely keep my eyes open
For the sting of the wind on my face
I can barely keep balance
For the strength of the waves

But I’m gonna fix my gaze on the one who says it can be done
I’m gonna fix my gaze on the face of the one who calms the storms
I’m gonna fix my gaze on Jesus Christ.
The water walker the faith maker

Truth be told I thought
It would get easier
Once I stepped out of the boat
The seas would be still
But the storm is raging on all around me
And gravity and logic fights to bring me down

I’m gonna take just one nervous step onto the waters
Just one timid step onto the seas
I can barely keep my eyes open
For the sting of the wind on my face
I can barely keep balance
For the strength of the waves

But I’m gonna fix my gaze on the one who says it can be done
I’m gonna fix my gaze on the face of the one who calms the storms
I’m gonna fix my gaze on Jesus Christ.
The water walker the faith maker

When I turn my eyes to the storm
When I start measure the distance to the shore
The waves will swallow me and my little faith
But I will cry out
His arm is not too short to save
