waterfall

There is a waterfall up ahead.

How wet you get depends on how close you get to the water.

God’s love
runs deeper than we can fathom
higher than our eye can see
stronger than death or illness
wider than the horizon is off afar
a tap missing a shut off valve, it keeps going and going and going
forever
without end

A lover of all things water related, the choice of using a waterfall to explain God’s love is an instant snapshot for me.

Usually beautiful,
as immense torrents of water pour down to plummet into the still deep pool waiting below
Majestic
Wild
Strong
Natural
Raging with purpose

Waterfalls become places where humanity find themselves drawn to. Fascinated with the falls,
Captivated by the power,
Yet somehow
at the same time
there is an underlying current at work.

God’s love is the same.
Fascinatingly directed on a collision course for our hearts
Waiting to pour in an abundance of love, peace, joy, hope, strength, grace
As we reach outstretched arms
for Him to touch us.

May you, down to your very soul, be soaked in the spray of His downpour as you draw close to Him.

His water is the only one that truly satisfies.

(If you are musically inclined like me, to catch a glimpse of the awesomeness of God’s love in song, listen to:
Make Me Brave; Anchor- Bethel Music
Rain Down- Martin Smith, Jesus Culture
Let it Rain, All Consuming Fire- Jesus Culture
Cornerstone; Oceans- Hillsong
And my new fave, the words of which are added below:)

Waterfall – Chris Tomlin

Oh God, my God I seek You
I wanna move when You move
You’re more than I could long for
I thirst for You

You’re an ocean to my soul
To my soul

Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Running wild and free
You hear my heart when I call, when I call
Deep calls to deep
Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me

Waterfall, waterfall

Oh God, my God I seek You
In this dry and desert land
You lead me to streams of mercy
Once again

You’re an ocean to my soul
To my soul

Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Running wild and free
You hear my heart when I call, when I call
Deep calls to deep
Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me

Waterfall, waterfall

It’s coming like a flood
I’m dancing in the rain
Everything I’ve done
Is covered in rivers of grace, amazing

It’s coming like a flood
I’m dancing in the rain
I lift up my hands
Your love never changes, amazing

Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Running wild and free
You hear my heart when I call, when I call
Deep calls to deep
Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me

Waterfall, waterfall
