Rolling in the Deep

Adelle is seemingly at the top of her world, mainly due to the success of,  among other hits, "Rolling in the Deep", a song ironically lucky for her, about  failed love.

While I have listened to, and enjoyed my quota of  'Adelle-bytes', the deep that I am currently rolling in has nothing to do with failed love and everything to do with another kind.

In Cowman's  Streams in the Desert  a devotional book first published in 1925, she describes an immersion 'into the deep of God's purposes...until He becomes a bright, dazzling, sweet, fathomless summer sea, in which we bathe and bask and breathe, losing ourselves and our sorrows in the calmness and peace of His everlasting presence."

Frankly, this kind of thing is hardly possible, ironically once again,  without falling into deep waters of one kind or another.

The truth of God's great love and His deep purpose for me has been illuminated by difficult times. May it be true for you if you happen to find yourself 'rolling in the deep'.

Thanks, Adelle. Glory to God.
