As I stare out the window at the ocean I’m reminded that God’s love is deep, wide, and long. It spans far beyond our vision or comprehension. God know the dimensions, but to us, it is measureless. It is far-reaching and inexhaustible. It has the power to change us; to mold us; to immerse us. It can be terrifying in its power, yet beautiful to behold.
So many stand on the shore and allow the waves to come to them. It tickles their toes and they dance with delight. But some are drawn to its deepness, its power, its beauty and standing on the shore simply is not enough.
I do not want to be one that is content to stand on the shore. I want to run into that blue vastness of His love with reckless abandon. I want to be brave enough to step out into the deepness of His love allowing it to cover me completely. I want to sink into it, rising and falling as the waves roll in and out. I want to brave the currents that threaten to pull me in because it is only then that I can feel Him on every inch of my skin and in every fiber of my being. It is only then that I can float along where His love takes me. It is there that I can plunge into the depths of a boundless love and discover a world that is not like this one.
