What it means to dive deeper into God’s word

Blinded Sight on loan from the maker of reality and I glimpse only a fraction of the picture The parade of time marching before me and I am subject to the constraints of the sidelines Thirsty Deep calls to deep, leaving me wanting more Spirit river laps gently Calls me in, downward to the deep … Continue reading What it means to dive deeper into God’s word
