Purposeful Faith

Abandon Your Heart to Jesus

Abandon your heart to Jesus

God calls us deeper – to abandon our heart to Jesus.  To go further and further into his waters of love. Waters that feel like they may overtake us, overwhelm us or overpower us, but still, he calls us there.

I want to go to that depth with him.

I want to see his supernatural power as he prompts me to walk on water.
I want to jump at the chance to walk scary, turbulent distances by faith.
I want to know, the only way to survive is by grabbing hold of his outstretched arm.

This kind of faith-life has been luring me. It has been calling.

And, here – as I plead to go this length – the Lord is faithfully unravelling truth.

Truth that says, “Come, share your heart. To go deeper, you have to let me go deeper.”

If I want to understand the depths of God’s love,
I have to open up the depths of my heart.

If I want to understand the power of his saving love,
I have to offer him the chance to save me.

If I want to see the deep mysteries of God,
I have to let him do deep ministries on me.

It is not about protecting self, it is about dying to self.
This is when we find ourself.

Do you want to go to the depths of love with Jesus?

He stands waiting.
He beckons us through love.
Calls us by grace.

He will share all of who he is, as we share all of who we are.

Enter the water. Enter the depths of his love. Enter into his heart. The one he stands ready to share.

Go deep. Let go of fear, let go of anxiety, let go of frustration, let go of control, let go of shame and grab hold of the heart of God.

What he will reveal to us is not just plain and rehearsed head knowledge of love, but deep and impactful heart knowledge of love.

I want that. Don’t you?

I want that deep unending, unconditional and unbelievable source of love.

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.[a] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” (Jer. 29:13-14)

  • I so desire deep & impactful instead of plain & rehearsed as well. May we pursue Him & experience all that He offers to us! Grateful to have been here from Faith Filled Friday this morning! Blessings!

  • Oh, this is a very powerful post which spoke right to me. [I’m leaving it open to read over again later tonight when I have time]. Thank you. [A fellow FMF-er]

  • Oh my sweet Kelly it’s as if you’re a walking hand and hand with me in my journey. This right here…”I want to see his supernatural power as he prompts me to walk on water.
    I want to jump at the chance to walk scary, turbulent distances by faith.
    I want to know, the only way to survive is by grabbing hold of his outstretched arm.” I had been cautiously rowing with my life vest on belaboring the ministry of blogging for 3 years. Last year the Lord said “Get out of the boat. Time to walk on water”. Then just yesterday I was flipping through National Geographic search for pics for my vision board and I ripped out a photo of a penguin diving deep as I said this year Lord take me deeper in you. Our spirits dive together sister. I’m amazed at how the Grand Weaver inextricably links us together.

    • Tyra, you do not know how much I love reading your comment. God wanted to reaffirm his truth in your soul. This idea of walking on water to him is so very clear to me. He has called us out to the risky, the areas others don’t want to travel to – and there he will do some amazing work. I can’t wait to see how it plays out in your life. Let’s go there together!

    • Cindy! Thanks for visiting dear one. God is so good, if only we will more and more go to him, we will more and more find love. I loved reading your comment. Please come back and visit soon!

  • Thank you for this…love is something God has been speaking to me about and giving me the desire to understand it better and experience it more. These lines hit, “Go deep. Let go of fear, let go of anxiety, let go of frustration, let go of control, let go of shame and grab hold of the heart of God.” I’ve been struggling with a few of these and pray I can let go! Thank you for being a voice for Him!

    • That is amazing that he is calling you deeper and deeper with him. We are works in progress. He will accomplish his goal with us. We can trust him in this! I know how it is to feel the struggle; be assured, if you are seeking him – he is working in you.
