DEVOTION: “This is my endlessly recurrent temptation: to go down to that sea (I think St. John of the Cross called God a sea) and there neither dive nor swim nor float, but only dabble and splash, careful not to get out of my depth and holding on to the lifeline which connects me with my things temporal.” (Pg 98)
Take me deep in to the waters.
Continuing yesterday’s thought. Are we ready to go deep?
Maybe this is coinciding with the end of the year so that we can really take a look at our lives and reset for the new year.
New Years resolution. More prayer.
But….maybe it’s more meaningful prayer. More prayer with action.
More prayer with intent and prayer with, dare I say, consequences.
Oh how we love to be ankle deep in the water. It’s safe there. It’s easy. Take me up to my neck….yes, faith. Trust.
Or….is it lack of faith and trust that prevent us from going deeper? Do we really trust God? Really?
Are you ready to get wet?
Frightened? Yes. Me too….
