If you’re in over your head, standing at the edge of indecision over the pool of God’s love, today’s song is for you.
Album: Welcome Home
Title: Over My Head
Oh, I could not hardly wait to serve up this week’s Worship Smoothie! One listen to today’s love song, Over My Head, by contemporary Christian recording artist, Brian Littrell (best known as a member of the Backstreet Boys), and you will be hitting that replay button again and again.
If you’ve been standing at the edge of indecision, at the pool of God’s love, this song was sung for you.
If you’re trying to figure out if it’s safer to stay dry on the sidelines or just jump into the cool, refreshing calm waters into Jesus’ arms, this song was written for you.
And if you feel like I do, in over your head in this walk of faith — you’ve come too far to go back, yet still journeying through the land of letting go — this song is for us.
I listen to this song, and it makes me want to run out of my small world into the love and safety of God’s big world.
I hear the lyrics, along with it’s guitar acoustics and sweet piano notes, I feel sunshine, spring flowers, and ice cream cones on a hot summer day.
For those who have a sweet tooth for happy days, filled with the laughter of childhood trust and innocence, we have a chorus to sing today:
I’m in over my head
Right where I wanna be
I’m so lost within Your love
The love that always covers me
So high, so deep, so wide
A strong and cleansing tide
My soul has found a place to rest
I’m in over my head
Hold on tightly, and let the current of God’s love carry us through. Whatever challenge you may be facing, whatever joy you may be celebrating, jump in. God’s rest is just right… over our heads.
Happy Friday! And may everything beautiful fill your long weekend. May the hours run slow to be enjoyed and fast to stir your hearts with laughter.
What do you think of your smoothie today? You like?
Lyrics to Over My Head - By Brian Littrel I tried to figure it out Time and time again and time again I guess there's just some things I'll never understand 'Cause Your ways aren't our ways But deep down in my soul, down in my soul There is one thing I know that I know I'm in over my head Right where I wanna be I'm so lost within Your love The love that always covers me So high, so deep, so wide A strong and cleansing tide My soul has found a place to rest I'm in over my head I've been holding on Now I'm letting go, just letting go Gonna let Your love carry me away I don't know where I'm going But I'm surrounded by the truth And I can feel the current pulling me Deeper into You I'm in over my head Right where I wanna be I'm so lost within Your love The love that always covers me So high, so deep, so wide A strong and cleansing tide My soul has found a place to rest I'm in over my head You see me for who I am You did reach out Your hand You made me understand That Your love has always covered me
