Ten Miles Wide – Solomon’s Wish

Not intending to mislead her
But idolatry, like a fever,
Was burning her up unaware
He was everything and anything
And nothing could ever bring him down

And so it goes, pedestals only stand so long
Where was her faith when he was gone

CHORUS:
Ten miles wide and one inch deep
An endless surface with nothing underneath
Underneath her vast exterior
Her depth was proven to be inferior
Her faith was ten miles wide and one inch deep

In the wake of disillusion
Left searching for solution
She was forced to redefine
All of the things she would never have to question

And so it goes, pedestals only stand so long
She’s looking for a faith that goes beyond…

CHORUS

And now she knows, pedestals only stand so long
She’s looking for a faith that goes beyond…

CHORUS
———————————————-

True story. I guess I’m not the only one who’s been in that situation before. Before I knew it, I was letting someone become my everything- inadvertantly placing the adoration that belonged to God alone in the hands of a mere man. I know there’s something to be said for love and sacrafice in a relationship, but God not only should be on top, He needs to be on Top.

Although, I won’t allow man to be an idol for me, I will still be obedient and submissive to my husband (God willing). What a joy it would be to sit at his feet and wash them – that I may be a servant and a representative of Christ for him. *sigh* All in His time 🙂
