Deep Calls to Deep

The journey is clouded at best.  I have no “You Are Here!” sign, not even a clear map.  What I do have is an Old Book of stories and revelations, and a Breeze.

Well, sometimes it’s a breeze.  Sometimes it’s a gale.  My boat is small and the waves can be fierce, but I trust the Captain, although I struggle at times to do so.

In the Breeze I can sometimes, barely, feel a whisper, “Deeper.  Deeper still.” 

The coastline is ever-changing.  Coves and inlets appear farther away.  Familiar lighthouses diminish.  Friendly boats veer off on their own courses while new ones join me for however long. 
I am sensing a shift in the ocean floor.  Soundings indicate the continental shelf I have known so long is gradually falling away as I journey on.  I’m only a small sailboat.  This is a great big ocean.  

But the promise of adventure, of new insight, of distant shores and exotic lands, beckons.  I have tried for a lifetime to quench those desires and I have failed.  I give in. 

I am no longer content to dally in the shallow lands.  My heart is expanding and I must follow as soul and Breeze intermingle. 

Deeper joy awaits, as does deeper pain. I know this, and yet I cannot, I will not, delay their coming.  LIFE is at stake.  True Life, and True Love. 

One other thing the Breeze tells me, in my moments of hesitancy…

Do not fear.  It will be worth it.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.  By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life. (Psalm 42:7,8)
