Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
Sink or Swim.
All of my life seems like one big sinking and swimming.
Vacillating between the rising and falling. The failures and successes.
I saw this word Dive and set forth to find a photo…and there was the image of arms reaching up, fully immersed. Immediately the verses came to my mind…”even there your hand shall lead me…”
This is what I need for my new year. The reminder and assurance that though I walk in dark places, yet unknown to me that He is there. That He will lead me and uphold me by His right hand.
And His faithfulness still does uphold…and though my life seems at times like a thrashing about in open waters, I have learned at last how to rest easy. How to surrender. Even to release what I cling to, that which holds me back or could cause me to sink. Or worse…to forget His faithful love.
Even as I dive into the unknown of this new year, I know I will find Him there.
For wherever I am.
There He is.
This is my comfort and strength.
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
Here I am I finally made it back over to join in with lots of my friends at Lisa-Jo’s.
Come “Dive” right in and join us- the water’s fine!
