I don’t know how to swim

“Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed? Did you take God into your mind only, or did you also embrace him with your heart? Did he get inside you?” Acts 19:2, The Message.

Distractions to the left and right.  All I want to do is go deeper… but I don’t know how to swim.

Oswald Chambers writes in The Love of God, “Has God been trying to bring into your life the fact that He is supernatural, and have you been asking Him what He is going to do?  He will never tell you.  God does not tell us what He is going to do; He reveals to us who He is.” (114).

I’m guilty of asking God the question, “What are You going to do with me life?”  All along God has not been concerned with what I am going to do… God wants me to know who He is!  I get so lost sometimes in all of this.

The person who trusts me will not only do what I’m doing but even greater things, because I, on my way to the Father, am giving you the same work to do that I’ve been doing.  You can count on it.  From now on, whatever you request along the lines of who I am and what I am doing, I’ll do it.  That’s how the Father will be seen for who he is in the Son.  I mean it.  Whatever you request in this way, I’ll do. (John 14:12-13, The Message).

“Deeper” by Delirious?

I want to go deeper
But I don’t know how to swim
I want to be meeker
But have you seen this old earth?
I want to fly higher
But these arms won’t take me there
I want to be, I want to be

Maybe I could run
Maybe I could fly, to you
Do you feel the same
When all you see is
Blame in me?

And the wonder of it all is that I’m living just to fall
More in love with you

I want to go deeper
But is it just a stupid whim?
I want to be weaker
Be a help to the strong
I want to run faster
But this old leg won’t carry me
I want to be, I want to be

Maybe I could run
Maybe I could fly, to you
Do you feel the same
When all you see is
Blame in me?

And the wonder of it all is that I’m living just to fall
More in love with you

Maybe I could run
Maybe I could follow
It’s time to walk the path
Where many seem to fall
Hold me in your arms
Just like any father would
How long do we have to wait?
How long, we’re going all the way

And the wonder of it all is that I’m living just to fall
More in love with you
