Deep Waters

Isaiah 43:2

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.

This verse is so beautiful and simple at the same time. There is nothing on this earth that is too hard or complicated for God to face right next to us. He will be with us in our ugliest moments, our deepest sins, and depressing nights when we are crying in bed.

He will always be right there. Nothing is too big for God. He will always be reaching out to us, picking us up, and helping us over the waves.

You know that feeling you get after a mission trip? Or church Sunday morning? Or even after hearing a super moving worship song on the radio? The feeling where you’re on top of the world and so in love with Christ and all that He represents.

These moments are so amazing. However, sadly, for most people they end. By the next day, or even an hour after God works in you, you catch yourself falling back into your old ways. It’s almost like all the time you devoted to Christ did nothing. But here’s what people don’t understand.

You can’t build a real relationship with someone by giving them an hour of your time once a week. Or talking to them for five minutes every night before bed. Or pleading to them right before a big test.

A relationship with Christ is REAL! And it’s important. Treat it like you would any other relationship. Think about how much time you spend with your best friend, your mom, or significant other. It’s probably a lot of time! Wellll we should be spending even more time with God because He loves us more than anyone else could.

He pulls us out of our problems. He gives us hope. He reminds us to keep on living, because each one of us has a purpose and a plan. SO, keep on living for Christ guys! Remember that He loves you no matter what. Just because you screw up sometimes doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough to follow Him. He is with us ALWAYS!! – Cami
