Deep Calls to Deep

Deep calls to deep
at the roar of your waterfalls;
all your breakers and your waves
have gone over me.
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love,

and at night his song is with me,
a prayer to the God of my life.
(Psalm 42:7-8)


Overwhelmed, broken, staggering with the weight of your sadness. How can heart-deep grief be this painful? In anguish you cry out to the heavens not knowing if you will hear a sound. You wait. Thunder in the background, then a roar that falls over your heart. God explodes into your spirit with His power, might, and presence. In waves His Spirit overwhelms you. The deepest glory of God, the deepest part of who He is, reaches down and grips the deepest part of your anguish. Deep calls to deep. And you know. You know His steadfast love is greater than all your pain, bigger than your doubts. Strength swells within you. The thunder changes to His soft, tender love song whispering through the dark of your night. You respond in prayer...sobbing, trusting, pouring it all out, feeling Him gently picking up your pain...and you feel Him cradle you. The God of your life has rescued you again.

Deep calls to deep...He will pour Himself into your heart.
Deep calls to deep...He sees it all, the depths of you and He wants all of it.
Deep calls to deep...prayer to the God of your life...and you find the Sovereign of the universe right beside you.
He calls. He calls to you.
