Again this morning, I listened to LifeWay Women Devotions. This morning I listened to Angie Smith. What an amazing woman. I love when you hear someone speak and their love for Jesus is so very real. It just pours out of them. Angie is that type of person.
As I drove into work, thinking about her words, my prayer is
Jesus, take me to the deep. Take me where my feet don’t touch and I have to depend on you. I pray this with trembling knees. I trust you, but I measure all trust in how much I can bear or I believe I can handle. I find myself trusting only as much feel I can pick up the pieces if something goes wrong. I don’t want to trust you through my abilities. I want to know you – I want to know who I am. I can only know who I am through you.
Don’t let me be content with the shore, with getting my feet wet, with wading in where I can touch. Let me want more then anything – let my heart’s desire be to live fully submerged in you.
