What Are You Waiting For?



I heard this song for the first time during The Biggest Loser show last week. I looked up the lyrics online and found a link on YouTube to the music by a young Christian artist, Britt Nicole.


The lyrics so speak to where I am in my life and where many of us are... taking those first steps to becoming a new and better version of ourselves. We step out in faith... knowing we've failed before and going ahead anyways... putting that fear behind us and jumping out... trusting in ourselves... because we know - deep down - that we CAN do this!

So what are you waiting for?

WALK ON WATER LYRICS:

You look around
It's staring back at you
Another wave of doubt
Will it pull you under
You wonder

What if I'm overtaken
What if I never make it
What if no one's there?
Will you hear my prayer?

When you take that first step
Into the unknown
You know that He won't let you go

 So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities try to halt you
 You know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all
It takes and you can
Walk on the water too

 So get out
And let
Your fear fall to the ground
No time to waste
Don't wait
Don't you turn around and miss out
Everything you were made for
I know you're not sure
So you play it safe
Try to run away

 If you take that first step
Into the unknown
He won't let you go

 (chorus)


Bridge:
(step out)
Even when a storm hits
(step out)
Even when you're broken
(step out)
Even when your heart is telling you telling you to give up
(step out)
When your hope is stolen
(step out)
You can't see where you're going
You don't have to be afraid

 So what are you waiting,
What are you waiting for?

 So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities try to halt you

 You know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all
It takes and you can
Walk on the water...
Walk on the water too.

Hey cute girl! I'm so glad you popped up on my blog yesterday! I've been missing you. :) Because I'm never on twitter anymore, I forget to check in with people, forgive me. :) Thank you so much for the support, I think coming to your page today (this particular post) wasn't just a coincidence. I needed to see these lyrics. :) Thank you so much- and know I'm here for you too! I'm cheering for you to make it, you can do it!!!!

Thank you for that song! It is right on time. :D I just wrote about this on a blog a couple of hours ago.

What am I waiting for? I've been waiting until I am thin! Just stepping off of the path of life, until I'm thin.

God's been talking to me about that tendency. He's telling me to "Do it fat!"

Yes, I need to make the healthy choices necessary to lose weight and get fit--but no more waiting.

Your song was just like God saying, "See, I told you. Do it now. What are you waiting for" :D

Thanks.

I love this song too. I have it on my ringtone and ringback tone. I needed these words. There is something keeping me from moving forward. I wish Jillian could come help me. I need someone to get in my head and help me figure things out.
