The weather was holding and I made my way to the back side of the small lake when my phone started to ring. A friend shared that I had been on her mind so much, she’d been praying for me and wanted to share words of encouragement. I listened carefully as she eventually felt the need to share one word specifically…Deeper.
I had still been walking as I listened, but rain had come and it was getting heavy very fast. The journal in my pack was all in ink and would streak pretty easy so I made way to some cover with picnic benches. It was good to be stirred by my friend’s heart and hanging up I thought about her timing.
I had been meditating the better part of the morning and seeking the deeper things of my Father. Her word reminded me of a favorite verse I often give thought to….Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
I sat still for a long while enjoying the wild geese and birds all about. Listening to my Ipod I found the perfect song for this moment. Stepping out from beneath the covering into the pouring rain, I turned my face upward to live out what I was seeking.
I wanna go, I wanna go deeper
Take me deeper in You…
Rain rain rain on my face, on my face
Fill me up, fill me up until I drown *
* (Deeper lyrics from Deluge)
