It's Time to Swim

Don't know who it is for, but felt impressed to post this short note
for someone who thinks they are in over their head right now.
Be encouraged. God knows where you are and you are in His hands.

Isaiah 43:2 says:

"When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee…"

You know, we go through these times. It get's rough and sometimes the
water seems like it will overtake us... but God says, "No, they shall not!
I've got you! You can make it!"

There is a song I love that goes like this...

Thought you had
all the answers
to rest your heart upon.
But something happens,
don't see it coming, now
you can't stop yourself.
Now you're out there swimming...
In the deep.
In the deep.

Life keeps tumbling your heart in circles
till you... Let go.
Till you shed your pride, and you climb to heaven,
and you throw yourself off.
Now you're out there spinning...
In the deep.
In the deep.

Listen, something I've learned... you can't really swim until you get
in the deep. Trust God.
He's taking you somewhere you've never been before.
