Dive Into the Living Water

source

dive into the Word. 

what does that even mean?

do i dive like an Olympian,

with fancy twists?

bends?

jumps?

spins?

is there a judge

on the other side

qualifying my worthiness

to enjoy God's Word?

or do i dive because

that's the fastest way.

i need my mind

cleansed,

refocused.

and since diving goes head first

i dive.

since I am cold,

dirty,

tired

up here on the diving board,

anxious that i'll go in the

wrong way,

i will simply dive.

submerge.

get swallowed up in the

blurry water of grace

found in Your Word.

because i need You, Jesus,

because i love You,

i dive in

not counting on how i get there

but counting fully upon

there. 

You. You, Jesus, are there. 

You invite me to come,

not with a perfect heart,

creative soul,

attentive mind,

quiet body.

You invite me to come

because You know my

soul is thirsty and

You are the Living Water.

i'm diving in.

    1. Wow, Vanessa, you have the gift of encouragement.

      Yes, I wrote this when I struggled with feeling ready to read the Word. I realized that it isn't so much a feeling as a need.

    1. They were fueled by a soul-question before I read God's Word. The question of, "Why don't I feel ready to read these sacred writings?" Thank you for the comment!
