From where I'm standing
Lord it's so hard for me to see
Where this is going
And where You're leading me
I wish I knew how
All my fears and all my questions
Are gonna play out
In a world I can't control

Oh, oh

When I'm lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory
Cause You're already there
You're already there
Standing at the end of my life
Waiting on the other side
And You're already there
You're already there

Oh, oh, oh, oh

From where You're standing
Lord, You see a grand design
That You imagined
When You breathed me into life
And all the chaos
Comes together in Your hands
Like a masterpiece
Of Your picture perfect plan

When I'm lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory
Cause You're already there
You're already there
Standing at the end of my life
Waiting on the other side
And You're already there
You're already there

One day I'll stand before You
And look back on the life I've lived
I can't wait to enjoy the view
And see how all the pieces fit (x2)

One day I'll stand before You
And look back on the life I've lived
Cause You're already there
You're already there
When I'm lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory
Cause You're already there
You're already there
Standing at the end of my life
Waiting on the other side
And You're already there
You're already there

You are already there

    God knows today all the choices, all the triumphs, all the failures, everything about our future. And he loves us anyway, imperfect as we are. We have one choice to make that dwarfs all others, as it not only impacts our lives here on earth, but the infinite future that waits for us when we die: will we accept jesus christ as our savior and lord? He was born, crucified, and raised from the dead for us, to cover our sins, to pay our debt. If you are searching for answers that elude you (don't we all at some point?) snag a bible and read the book of john. Jesus did what he did for you and me. He really is waiting at the end of our life.

    It doesn't matter what you go through in life. You could have an easy life, or a hard life. Your life could be full of sickness or health. You could be rich or poor. Die young or old. It doesn't matter. God stands outside of time, and He is already there: every step, every breath, every terrible diagnosis, every birth. He is everywhere, in every time and He never changes. And when you get to the end of your life, no matter what your life turned out to be, He will be there, waiting for you on the other side.
    I love this song.

    This song means that when you're in the middle of a storm (hard time in your life) or making big life decisions, and you can't see where it's taking you or what's going to come of it, god sees the big picture. He's already there at the end of your life watching the whole story before it ever happens. As believers we don't have to worry about the hard times, struggles or big decisions. We don't have to work to find our own way in the world. All we have to do is follow his lead and he'll bring us through. Because he's already there and he'll be there anytime you need him.

    Jesus is waiting for you on the other side of a wall of some sorts. To each person it can mean different things. Maybe it's saying that god already knows how your future is going to play out. Or maybe someone can't get around a brick wall and this song is saying that god is already there, waiting for you. It can also be saying that when you die, god will be there waiting for you. It depends what the person is going through, but in the end its saying that god is already there, wherever "there" is to each individual person.
