Mercy Like Morning

This really touched me. I thought of all of you when I read this quote from “Mercy like Morning: Discovering Truth in Seasons of Waiting” by Jane Johnson –

“I pray that you would have the strength to dig and to keep digging . To continually search every nook and cranny and recess of your Bible until there is no dark corner left to dig into, no treasure stone left unturned. I pray that you keep digging in Scripture until you are old and gray, that you may be able to learn the broad and expansive depth of the love of Christ. And I pray that you keep digging that you may learn the deep-sea depth of it. Because that breadth and length and deep-sea depth and heaven-height love of Christ continually surpasses and exceeds your intelligence and understanding. So I pray that you dig and keep digging. Because you cannot reach the depth, breadth, length, or height of Him. But one thing you can count on: When you get down into the no-light-left, deep-sea parts of God? He will meet you there, rejoicing over you”

“with gladness, quieting you with His knowledge-surpassing love, and rejoicing over you with deep-sea singing. I pray that in those moments, when you breathe out deeply while holding fistfuls of dug-up gold dust from the depth of God’s Word, that you can recognize the shift between the ending of that thick and heavy darkness and the beginning of the outer edges of His glory. The kind that only comes with being hidden in the shadow of His hand as He proclaims and sings His name over you. I pray that you can comprehend that the shadow of death is really the shadowing-forth of His glory. And it’s a glory, hallelujah, for all generations to see, forever and ever kind of glory -greatness. Amen.”
