Stepping into the Jordan

I'm standing at the Jordan,
Waiting for the river to part,
Oh help me sink my feet in
And wade in with my heart…

The river is so deep Lord,
With stones stuck from my Past,
They keep my feet from moving,
And the waters rising fast.

Oh I need to take a step now
And move these heavy feet,
To still the raging rapids
Of my drowning unbelief…

I'm weary of this bondage,
And I'm stuck in miry clay--
And stumbling on the same stones
I fall on every day…

So I'm stepping out in trust, Lord,
Oh please, come take my hand…
I'll walk into Your waters
That lead me to Your land.

I'm stepping in the Jordan,
And rejoicing as the waters part…
Oh how I feel so free now…
As I walk in with my heart!



 

The Israelites came to the eastern side of the swollen Jordan River. Hundreds of thousands of people needed to cross over into the promised land...God said He would raise the waters into a heap…"as soon as the soles of the feet….shall rest in the waters"
 

Joshua 3:13
