Dig Deep


 Dig Deep

So many plans for the future

But they seem to always get stalled

I really need to get it together

But on the ground I sprawled

I need a way to move forward

But I'm stuck at Nowhere

I can't even see

What's stopping me

I wanted to reap

So I had to dig deep


I dug

And I lugged

And I chugged

And I tugged

Until I made it to the bottom

And found a God so awesome

Who keeps me going

So I'll continue growing

He was there all the time

Waiting for me to climb

Out of the slime

So He can shine

In wild abundance

In order to reap

I had to dig deep


Such a deep hole to the end of myself

Letting go of the trials, heartaches and failures

To a place of total dependence on God

Relying on the Ultimate Cleanser

Now He moves me forward

So I can leave Nowhere

And my dreams

He redeems

But in order to reap

I had to dig deep


I dug

And I lugged

And I chugged

And I tugged

Until I made it to the bottom

And found a God so awesome

Who keeps me going

So I'll continue growing

He was there all the time

Waiting for me to climb

Out of the slime

So He can shine

In wild abundance

In order to reap

I had to dig deep
