Steven Curtis Chapman – Higher Ways lyrics

If I could only fly
I'd go up and look down from the sky
So I could see the bigger picture
And Lord if I could sit with You
At Your feet for an hour or two
I'm sure I'd ask too many questions
'Cause there's so much going on down here
That I must confess I just don't understand

But I have prayed
And at your feet my whole life has been laid
So I wont worry I wont be afraid
'Cause my soul is resting on Your higher ways
Let the road ahead become unclear
I am Yours so what have I to fear
If my soul is resting on Your higher ways

Your higher ways teach me to trust You
Your higher ways are not like mine
Your higher ways are the ways of the Father
Hiding His children in His love

So let it rain
And if my eyes grow dim with tears of pain
This hope I have will not be washed away
'Cause my soul is resting on Your higher ways

Maybe then You will take me aside
And show me the bigger picture
But until I'm with You
I'll be here with a heart that is true
And a soul that's resting on
Your higher ways

    This song is based out of Isaiah 55:8, which says "'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,' declares the LORD". So many times we can wish we knew what God is thinking. Especially when life is hard for us, we have to wonder what He's trying to do. This song reminds us that God really does have a plan for our good, even though He may not reveal how our trials are gonna help while were facing them.
