Is your love shallow?
Some rivers are little more than streams across the dessert. Drizzles of water that spill aimlessly, and dry up too soon.
To love like this is to hardly love at all.
Is your love winding and twisting?
Some rivers curve around wildly, with no sense of direction, making it hard to stay oriented. Almost impossible to navigate.
To love like this is to love without focus.
Is your love a raging torrent?
Some rivers run fast and violent. Sure, there’s the thrill of the white water, but almost too much too handle.
To love like this is to to love with no peace.
Is your love a lazy stream?
Some rivers take their time. Floating along with barely a current, enjoying the scenery.
To love like this is to love with no passion.
Is your love deep?
Some rivers stand the test of time. Carving out a legacy. Majestic, mysterious and awe-inspiring.
To love like this is to love completely.
How deep is your love?
I’ve decided. I want the deep deep love of Jesus.
I want a river of life, pouring out of me.
Is this what you want?
If so, then let’s go deep. Let’s seek God in our very depths.
Let’s be open to love with a direction and purpose, and a sense of reverence.
Let’s soak ourselves in passion and peace.
Let’s be nourished by water and the spirit.
Let’s make our marks on this world,
criss-crossing and creasing
and quenching the dry places,
until the whole world says:
Have a great week,
