Most people will tell you to dream high, aim higher or set your standards up to a pedestal. However, when it comes to love, why do people tells us to love deeper?
When artists make a work of art, be it a painting a sonnet or a song, they dig deeper, their roots are deeper, same goes their emotions---why is that?
For starters, digging deep means getting everything from your entire being, from your foot to your knees, up to the strands of your hair.
An ocean that is very dark means it's probably very deep. Emotions are like that: the deeper the emotion, the deeper the love or sometime hate.
However, as Christians, we should not just dig deeper, we also need to sink deeper for us to be able to do that dig.
As the Bible says in Matthew 14:31 "And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?"
This verse tells ius when Jesus and the disciples encountered a storm while they were sailing, the Lord, at that time was having His rest, leaving the disciples to fear for their life.
However, their fear only showed their lack of faith to Jesus. But God proved them wrong.
So how does this verse come to play when digging deep? Sometimes, for us Christians to be able to dig deeper, we will encounter various testing in our life, we either pass or fail.
But as we are being tested, let us not forget how mighty our God is, doubting Him will only prove that you lack faith.
Everything happens for a reason and it is God who plans everything.
Problems can either make us or break us, but at the end of the day, it's up to us if we will trust God with our problems; remember, the more we love God, the more we uphold His name.
He died for us on the cross when there is no sin spotted in Him, He gave Himself for us. His love is wider that sky, deeper than the sea, softer as a baby strong as it can be, linger than a million miles and more than I can see. That's how much our God loves us.
So sink deeper in love to our God.
