Where's Your Focus Point?

"We Fall Down" by Chris Tomlin is a simple song. It is not one of those songs that takes a long time to memorize. Sing it a few times and you’ve got it. It may be simple but the meaning of the song, the message, is anything but simple.

It is a song that gives Christ the glory. A song that sings praise to Him and only Him. It doesn’t dwell on our problems; it dwells on His greatness and mercy. It gets your mind off yourself and instead gets you thinking upon Jesus.

We need to sing more songs like this. We need to listen to more songs like this. More importantly we need to live more like this. What do I mean?

Well, if we think upon God and His greatness instead of the problems in our lives, He becomes greater and our problems become less. He is our focus. Not us. When the apostle Peter took His eyes off of Jesus and started focusing on the waves around him, he began to sink. What would have happened if Peter had kept his eyes on Jesus? He wouldn’t have sunk. Simple as that. He would have reached Jesus without any difficulty.

The same truth applies to us today. Right now.

If we keep Jesus as our focus point, we will not fall. But the minute we take our eyes off of Him and glance around us, then we begin to fall.

We need to constantly look to Him. And to thank Him and praise Him for being who He is. We need to get our minds off of ourselves…and instead get our hearts and minds on Jesus. And to praise and worship Him with all that we have. We need to just “fall down and lay our crowns at the feet of Jesus.” He deserves nothing less.

We Fall Down


We fall down
We lay our crowns
at the feet of Jesus

The greatness of

mercy and love
at the feet of Jesus


And we cry holy, holy, holy
And we cry holy, holy, holy
And we cry holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
