Into Faith I Go (Jersey Village)

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1

When we read through Hebrews 11, we are given examples of those who have been defined by their faith: Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and many others. What was the measure of their faith? It was that they sought God and followed in the path where He directed them.

It can be hard to step out into the unknown, but there are times that God calls us to do just that: to be obedient and to go where he would send us, do what He asks of us, and become who He is calling us to be. You may not see the end of the road, but Psalm 119:105 tell us that he will illuminate our path every step of the way – “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

This song from our Jersey Village Campus worship team is an encouragement to seek the Father and follow in faith where He leads.


Lyrics

Verse 1
I’ve never been good at change
If I’m honest, it’s always scared me
But I can’t deny this stirring deep inside me
Now I know it’s time to stop resisting

‘Cause I’m not getting any younger
Fear is a such a sad way to live a life
So face to the wind, I’m jumping out, I’m walking in
Every single thing You want to show me

Chorus
To the ups and downs, the highs and lows
The taking in, the letting go
To tears and laughter, the great unknown
To the open journey, into faith, I go
Into faith, I go

Verse 2
Nobody said this would be easy
Anyone who did never went through anything painful
But faith is not some fragile thing that
Shatters when we walk through something hard
So, we walk on whatever may come

Chorus
To the ups and downs, the highs and lows
The taking in, the letting go
To tears and laughter, the great unknown
To the open journey, into faith, I go

Bridge
Running like a child in an open field
Stepping off the edge, I’m facing all my fears
If this is what it feels like to be born again
I’ll be born again

Verse 3
So when I feel like giving up
When I feel like throwing it all away
I look back over my shoulder
And I can see Your goodness
Every single step that I have taken

And it beats like a drum
And it rings like a bell
And it sings like a choir
And it’s leading me on my way
Oh, You lead me on my way

Chorus
To the ups and downs, the highs and lows
The taking in, the letting go
To tears and laughter, the great unknown
To the open journey, into faith, I go
Into faith, I go
Into faith, I go
