So Far Gone-TFK

So Far Gone
Thousand Foot Krutch
 
I know they say that the space between
Can make it stronger than we've ever seen
They might be right but I disagree
Cause I've never felt stronger than when you're with me
 
Sometimes I wonder why you even care
Cause even when I leave you're always there with me
And like a candle makes a brighter place
This mark you've made on me can't be erased.
 
I wanna be so far gone in you
So far nothing else will ever do
I wanna be so far gone in you
In you..
 
I've stood alone and I've fallen down
Your hands were there to pick me off the ground
Sometimes I cry cause I can't believe
Your love is big enough to cover me
 
Sometimes I've wondered if you're even there
But when I feel far away you meet me there
And like a candle makes a brighter place
This mark you've made on me can't be erased
Yeah..
 
I wanna be so far gone in you
So far nothing else will ever do
I wanna be so far gone in you
In you..
 
I wanna be so far gone in you
So far nothing else will ever do
I wanna be so far gone in you
In you..I wanna be lost
 
I wanna be lost in you
Like a ship in the night
I wanna get lost in you
Underneath your sky
 
I wanna be lost in you
Like a ship in the night
So far gone tonight
 
I wanna be so far gone in you
So far nothing else will ever do
I wanna be so far gone in you
In you…
 
So far gone in you
In you
In you
So far gone in you

The song called So Far Gone by Thousand Foot Krutch is talking about someone specific. Someone specific that most of us know Him from the time we learnt and decided to believe. Who is this you may ask? He’s all over the bible, born, grew up to be a man, sharing God, doing miracles, healing, praying for us, shed His blood, sacrificed Himself and died for us, risen, and still even praying for us in heaven. This somebody is more than just a somebody, His name is Jesus my friends.

Some days, sometimes in our life not everything goes right, will go our way. We don’t 
understand why the storms of life come and take awhile to leave. Sometimes it makes us want to just give up  or quit at what we’re doing. Sometimes some people find things are just not getting better or why am I not happy? I’m doing everything I can, sometimes they feel when the going gets tough they think quitting God might help solve it because they feel God’s not listening or cares to help. In reality they’re wrong, God does things on His own timing, we need to be patient and keep asking and wait on Him.  
 
The song called So Far Gone by Thousand Foot Krutch is talking about someone specific.The second set/chords in the song sometimes tears me up or what not because it make you wonder somedays when I’m having a rough day or if I did something wrong, or just one of those times or years in life that don’t feel as encouraging like you seem it to be. Sometimes wondering if He even cares? when will my prayers be answered it just feels too long. I haven't put Him in a box and forgot about Him and I hope never will, I always came back to God, but I’ve questioned God before, I’ve said with tears too asking why as I prayed alone. 

Isaiah 41:8-10

“But as for you, Israel my servant,
   Jacob my chosen one,
   descended from Abraham my friend,
I have called you back from the ends of the earth,
   saying, ‘You are my servant.’
For I have chosen you
   and will not throw you away.
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
   Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
   I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

 
When a person accepts Christ and then later in life down the road decides to run the other direction making bad choices one day, God is obviously not glorified and very hard to see in them. They have decided to leave God, but God never left us, He may let us go through a trial until we come to relise we need Him. Jacob in the verse sounds like he`s gone away from God for abit or maybe he`s new to God. Either way God comforts Jacob letting him know that God of the universe will never abondon him or push him away and will help him.

  1. thx, it is something to challenge yourself and think about. I like this song for sure. It`s one when I get in that moment with God and just praise and worship Him. Often on my own.

  2. Awesome stuff.  I have done that with this song too… One of my favorites to just be alone with God and praise and pour out my heart is Switchfoot's Restless…
