It's funny how my "season of life" impacts my perspective on so many things, including my relationship with the Lord.
A few of you commented along the lines of how it takes purposeful work to go deep. To stay below the surface requires a concerted effort to swim down.
When I picture going deep and escaping the turmoil of the surface for the depths of His peace,
I picture... sinking. It's a complete, surrendered, letting go. I give up my will to survive and to keep myself afloat and then I find myself
down into the quiet, dark, calm, peaceful places.
I remember the seasons of my life when I would work hard to go deep. When I would dive and kick and swim purposefully toward the depths.
For now, I am content to surrender to gravity.
Surely, my season for vigorous swimming will come around again, in due time.
