Ok, sorry if this seems boring & common, but presently, this is my state of mind. I’ve been struggling to not live on the surface of life worrying & being frustrated with a litany of subjects. I’m very aware of my need to find peace, rest & confidence in God in the depths of my heart – which He helps me to do from time to time. But I also sense myself in the daily living that like a buoy, its easy to pop back to the surface & get blown & tossed around by shallow living, people frustrations, my own humanity, etc. I guess the fact that I have this desire to live in God’s rest & peace is evidence of Him working in me. But I’m finding that more than wanting to live in depths w His peace guarding my heart & mind, I’m finding that this is becoming a necessity.
Lindel Cooley (however you spell his name) sang a song many years ago, “I Need You More” & I find myself singing that in genuine poverty of heart. But I also sense that God has some inexpressable joy for me as I surrender to my need for Him & the abundance of Him integrated into daily living – even in the shallows. God is ever present. What a relief!
