I’m Diving In !

The inspiration for this post comes from a song that we sang in Church this past Sunday.  I’ll include the lyrics and a link for the video below this post.  I hope you’ll take a moment to listen.

Sometimes (even though I know better) I walk the line.  You know that line.  It’s the line between faith and doubt.  The line between trying to be superwoman and freaking out because I’m not.  It’s the line between trying so hard be balanced and being irritable because NOTHING falls into place.  It’s the line between walking in the ways of this world and living in the Kingdom of our Lord.  I’ve learned the hard way you can’t be in two places at one time- mentally or physically.

I have to be reminded to get off the fence and just go on over.  Dive in.  Jump in with BOTH feet. Forget trying to do it all. ” Seek ye first His Kingdom…” This applies to everything.  From His Kingdom to my daily routine.  I have to dive in and be fully immersed in each moment in order to fully appreciate and truly enjoy them.  We face this choice with every moment: running errands, planing meals, work, chores, playtime.  It’s so easy to get caught up in multi-tasking that we loose the joy in everyday life.

Today I am making the choice to dive in and to stay in each moment, each task, and each experience. Jump in with me!

Rom. 11:33-36; Eph. 3:16-19
The long awaited rains 


Have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground 
And carved their way to where 
The wild and rushing river can be found 
And like the rains 
I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah 
My heart is racing and my knees are weak 
As I walk to the edge 
I know there is not turning back 
Once my feet have left the ledge 
And in the rush I hear a voice 
That’s telling me it’s time
to take the leap of faith 
So here I go

I’m diving in, I’m going deep in over


my head, I want to be 
Caught in the rush, lost in the flow,
in over my head, I want to go 
The river’s deep, the river’s wide,
the river’s water is alive 
So sink or swim, I’m diving in

There is a supernatural power 


In this might river’s flow 
It can bring the dead to life 
And it can fill an empty soul 
And give a heart the only thing 
Worth living and worth dying for, yeah 
But we will never know the awesome power 
Of the grace of God 
Until we let ourselves get swept away 
Into this holy flood 
So if you’ll take my hand 
We’ll close our eyes and count to three 
And take the leap of faith 
Come on let’s go
