"Put out into deep water." - Luke 5;4
Just as your disciples, you ask me to go deeper.
Deeper into who you are.
Who I am as I gaze at the reflection.
To go deeper, into your truth, I must let go of the shore.
Hugging it. Clutching it. Clinging with sand under my nails.
No longer content to stay on the beach, splashing in waves like a child.
Holy Spirit, guide me.
Take my hand and gently lead.
Teach me to search the deep.
Today, I cut the ties holding me to the shore.
Saturate me today in your deep waters.
Open my eyes that I may see your truths clearly.
No longer murky depths distorting my view.
I am on a beautiful, piercing, humbling, breathtaking journey to intimacy.
In the middle of the deep.
Just me and my Lord, teaching me to walk on the waves.
Wherever we are in our journey, there is more. Never settle. A deeper level of intimacy with the living God awaits me. A deeper level awaits you. Plunge deeper. Soak in only Him. Drip by drip no more, may His love simply saturate.
