What are you waiting for?

Song of the Week: "Walk on the Water," Britt Nicole

I barely have 10 seconds to post because I'm smack dab in the middle of law school exams.  But, there's so much I want to talk about, like: 
  • The So Long Insecurity Simulcast yesterday - WOW! is all I have time to say for now, but that's going to have to be a post unto itself.
  • How I feel about graduating from law school and thus closing the Wake Forest chapter of my life.
  • And, the fact that Bobby got a JOB! Yes!  And he loves it!  God is so faithful!
But, since I don't have time to talk about anything because outlines are calling my name, we'll save those topics for another day.  Today, let me just challenge you with the words of this song by Britt Nicole.  (Yes, I love her music.  She truly has a fresh perspective on what it means to follow Christ.)  The song is called "Walk on Water."  The lyrics speak for themselves:

You look around
It's staring back at you
Another wave of doubt
Will it pull you under
You wonder

What if I'm overtaken
What if I never make it
What if no one's there?
Will you hear my prayer?

When you take that first step
Into the unknown
You know that He won't let you go


So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities try to alter you

You know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all
It takes in you
You can walk on the water too

Verse 2:
So get out
and let your fear fall to the ground
No time to waste
Don't wait
Don't you turn around and miss out
Everything you were made for
I know you're not sure
So you play it safe
Try to run away

If you take that first step
Into the unknown
He won't let you go


(Step Out)
Even when a storm hits
(Step Out)
Even when you're broken
(Step Out)
Even when your heart is telling you, telling you to give up
(Step Out)
When your hope is stolen
(Step Out)
You can't see where you're going
You don't have to be afraid

So what are you waiting for?


 I can't find a music video for the song, but at least you can listen to it:
