Going Deeper


God is doing a work in me,

that I wish He wasn't doing

because

He is taking me

Deeper into my faith

by

taking me

Deeper into His HOPE

Deeper into His PEACE

Deeper into His LOVE

Deeper into

Surrendering

all of me

for more of

Him..

and I don't like it.

Well,

I don't like it now,

but I know that when I look back

I will love it

because

those who HOPE in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

which is such a better place.

Are you being challenged right now to go deeper in your faith?

Picture yourself digging a hole.

The deeper you dig

the darker it gets~

as it is further away from the light.

But when

God

takes us

Deeper in our faith

it gets brighter

and

Lighter

because

you have no choice

but to look up

directly into the

Light,

into the

Son,

Who never tires of

looking at us

no matter how dark is dark

because

He expereinced

the darkest of dark

on the cross

because

His thoughts

were on

you

and

I.

He never lost sight

because

He was focused on us.

So

If

JESUS

had to go deeper

why do I think that I am exempt?

Thank you God

for taking me deeper

into the shadow of your protected wings

as you continue to envelope me with

Your HOPE

Your PEACE

Your LOVE

because

I will

and

will you

Put Him in Your Story

and

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,

whenever you, _______________(put your name)

face trials of many kinds,

because you, _______________, know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Let perseverance finish its work so that you, _______________, may be mature and complete,

not lacking anything.​ James 1:2-4

One day

I will look back at

this journey

You have me on

and

smile

because

You love me so much

that you want

to take me

deeper

so that

I become less

and

You become more

because

You are so much more

than I could ever be.

For the Joy of the Lord is my, _____________'s, strength .

Nehemiah 8:10
