Sinking Deep

Driving today the song “Sinking Deep” came on. I know the song so I start singing along. When the bridge came on, I no longer was just singing, but praying:

Your love so deep
Is washing over me
Your face is all I seek
You are my everything
Jesus Christ
You are my one desire
Lord hear my only cry
To know You all my life

What does that really and truly mean. For Jesus Christ to be my one desire. If I only had one cry to the Lord, for it to be knowing Him all my life. I want that to be my only cry and desire so desperately. Then I thought of Luke 14:26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.”

‭‭I love my family. I love my life. But I have to love Jesus more. He has to be first above it all. Knowing Him all my life has to be my only cry and one desire above all else. Jesus is it. As I realized this love that I have for my Lord, my spirit rejoiced and my heart filled within me. Jesus really is becoming ‘it’ for me. I remember when He wasn’t enough. When I thought I needed drugs, alcohol, and unhealthy relationships just to survive in this world. But Jesus really is it. He is all that I need. “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬. God is a good giver. He is the source. Your love so deep is washing over me Jesus.
