I’ve loved this song since the day it came out.  Steven Curtis Chapman is a visionary worship leader and I love his song writing.  This song has always helped me to keep my perspective and priority in life and ministry.  I challenge anyone to apply this to your life or ministry.  As my buddy Flav puts it, are you a chicken or an EAGLE?


The long awaited rains
Have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
And carved their way to where
The wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rains
I have been carried here to where the river flows yeah
My heart is racing and my knees are weak
As I walk to the edge
I know there is no turning back
Once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice
Thats telling me its time to take the leap of faith
So here I go

Im diving in Im going deep in over my head I want to be
Caught in the rush lost in the flow
 in over my head I want to go
The rivers deep the rivers wide the rivers water is alive
So sink or swim Im diving in

There is a supernatural power
In this mighty rivers flow
It can bring the dead to life
And it can fill an empty soul
And give a heart the only thing
Worth living and worth dying for yeah
But we will never know the awesome power
Of the grace of god
Until we let ourselves get swept away
Into this holy flood
So if youll take my hand
Well close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on lets go
