2 Corinthians 4: 8-10, Romans 5: 3-5

I have kicked up the dust and the dirt on the narrow road
I have had to let go of some hurt to hold on to hope

I’ve watched the sunset before the promise came
I have waded through waters wide and walked through the flame
And I can say

(Chorus 1)
Every valley made me lift my eyes up
Every burden only made me stronger
Every sorrow only made Your joy go
Deeper and deeper, deeper, and deeper

(Verse 2)
I will run like I’m out to win, and finish the race
For every battle that’s sure to come I will be brave

(Pre-Chorus 2)
I’ve got my heart set on every word You say
And no matter what lies ahead You’ll make a way
And I will say

(Chorus 1)

(Chorus 2)
Every mountain is making me a climber
Every giant is calling out a fighter
Every heartache only makes Your love go
Deeper and deeper, deeper, and deeper

Thrown down but not defeated
I’m worn out but not giving up
I’ve hit ground but even at rock bottom
I’m just getting started, Yea, I’m just getting started

(Chorus 3)
Ev'ry valley made me lift my eyes up
I lift my eyes up
You're taking me deeper and deeper
Deeper and deeper

‘Deeper’ is my version of ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’ There’s this scene in Terminator 2 where Sarah Connor is institutionalized and she turns her bed on its side and starts doing pull ups, training for the fight she knows is coming. She’s not letting her circumstances stop her or wallowing in bed. Instead, she is making the most of her incarceration by using the time for preparation. I have this picture of God building our muscles to join the fight and be stronger than we were before. Not in our own strength, but in him. Last fall I was feeling completely overwhelmed by walking through the messiness of our marriage, and adding a third kid to our family. I started experiencing minor panic attacks, which came as a surprise because I always considered myself to be pretty even keeled and go-with-the flow. I found I just couldn’t catch my breath. I felt oppressed and stressed so this song came out of that place, believing that God was strengthening my spiritual muscles.
