There is an ocean
An ocean of love
An ocean that’s endless
An ocean above
A vastness of mercy
A vastness of peace
A vastness of kindness
It’s more than I need
I feel I’m about to dive in.
My ankles are in the water but I’m hardly wet.
The love of God is available to all.
Yet we often need to put aside some distractions.
That is the well of which the Lord spoke to Moses,
“Gather the people together, and I will give them water.”
Then Israel sang this song:
“Spring up, O well!
sing to it—
the leaders dug the well;
the nobles of the people dug,
by the lawgiver, with their staffs.”
Sometimes we need to dig in order to get to the water God provided for us.
And when we do others can drink from it as well.
It may take more than 1 person to dig.
We can encourage each other to dive into God’s provision.
Until it becomes a well unwavering.
Bubbling up inside us.
Always providing for our every need.
I believe I’m digging.
Getting a little more wet every time.
Until I hit the source.
And I will never again be dry.
The gospel is the source.
The root of all provision.
It displays God’s love more than anything else.
So I tell myself the gospel.
Every single day.
I (re)started reading books on the gospel a little while ago.
This time I will continue.
Until I hit the motherlode.
What am I reading today? (for the third time…)
The gospel for real life, by Jerry Bridges
