It’s Five Minute Friday! The perfect way for a too-busy mama sometimes writer to help some words find paper. Or blogsphere.
He said it this week in the revival. “Our faith can be a mile wide and an inch deep.” It’s a phrase I’ve always used to describe my curriculum in my classroom of middle schoolers, not my faith in Jesus Christ.
But it’s true.
A mile wide. An inch deep.
I know a lot. My heart and soul and spirit are covered over and over with the words and the cliches and the hymns and the scripture. I could write for a mile about being in church since I was a small child, about learning of Noah and Moses and Jonah’s big, big whale, but I couldn’t dig you a trench and fill it with hope.
My faith is too wide, too busy trying to make everyone fit it to become a root that reaches deep to find its source for living water.
So my revived thought this week is that maybe I need to dig in, dig down, dig deep and let God be the one who is wider than the sea rather than me.
