Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes to climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again. 'Boy, you'll never win! '
"You'll never win"

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a Sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again "boy, you'll never win!
"You'll never win"

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe
I will choose to listen and believe

I will listen and believe
I will listen and believe the voice of truth

I will listen and believe
Cause Jesus you are the voice of truth

And I will listen to You... You are...

    We may not think we are worth anything, nor special to anyone. We may not think we can do much anything with our lives. But the "Voice of Truth" (God) tells us the truth: God loves us and sees us as worthy and special and able to accomplish much! Why? Because His Son, Jesus, died for us, rose again and lives in us. Through Him we are forgiven, through Him our life has meaning and through Him we can do all things.

    Don't listen to the negative things the world says to you and about you. Choose to listen to the God who gives you your worth through His love for you.

    I've watched the film Facing the Giants for so may times and at the end is this song. The film and this song helped me to regain my sanity and just trust God in all the ups and downs that come to my life. It' easy to thank God in the times that we are happy and full of triumphs but it is hard to thank God when we are in pain and hardship. Sometimes you just have to look up and believe that He has a great plan for us and all the pain and challenges were given because you can get through them with His grace. Sometimes it is just His way of telling us that He will always be there for us, we just have to trust and call on Him.

    My favorite Casting Crowns song! When the world tells us lies, we can hear God speak the truth to us, and resistance is no longer futile. :). Great song, lyrically and musically.
