The Deep

The shallows will never be enough for the one who was made for the deep. You may get through a day, a week, or even a year but eventually your heart will ache as you pan the horizon and see the painted strands of autumn lighting the deeper places of his presence. Such mystery! Such danger! Such glory! 
Surely fear tells us that we will die if we leave the safety of the shores. Then the Spirit reminds us that we were never really alive there anyway. Let us not be so concerned on making it to 65 with some money in our pocket that we forget to live for God today.
