I love that idea because, so much of the time, we hear songs or messages that talk about walking on water or being held “above the waves” of adversity by our Lord. Don’t get me wrong . . . I see that as a wonderful analogy!
But sometimes the Lord takes us through the flood. Sometimes we are sinking down into the depths of adversity with waves crashing over our heads. That can be an overwhelming and frightening place to be, but also ironically it can be the most precious of times and places.
You might be beneath the waves right now and wondering what in the world is she talking about? You want to be swept up on shore where it feels safe or pulled out of the swirling chaos—sooner rather than later!
I totally get that! But I also think . . .
[Tweet “We can experience something beautiful in that place of being “over our heads”—surrendered to God.”]
That’s when we lay back in Jesus’ arms—fully surrendered to His purposes no matter what they are or where they lead.
Is this something you can relate to? Feeling “in over your head” by the troubles in your life and marriage?
Please let me know what you’re facing and how I can pray for you!
