When I was a little girl growing up on an American Paradise island, I dived deep into my lessons. I dug so deep, I was the teachers' favorite.
I dived deep into my life in the military, an interesting and challenging time. Yet, I dived!
I deep dived into my relationships .....
I deep dived into my career over a decade ago. I relied on the principles of hard work, loyalty and doing more than just enough. I dived in deep believing that doing the aforementioned would be enough!
It was not!
Although I had served faithfully, although I was loyal just like Daniel; it was not!
According to a recent sermon at my church, prayer must be my steering wheel and not used as my spare tire. My church also teaches us that snorkeling in the kiddy pool is not enough. We can dive deep in the Great Barrier Reef. I don’t want to settle for the safety of the shore.
I am diving deep!
And so, like Daniel; I find myself on my knees. I am diving deep into prayer and my relationship with Him because the battle scars are healing. I can no longer rely on others integrity, to be loyal, faithful or even do what is just and right. One can only avoid the evil works of others by diving deep into prayer.
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Dive deep into what really matters!
