‘Deep Calls To Deep’

My week was made special – like an unexpected gift – as I enjoyed a rare visit to the seaside – walking along the promenade – all my senses alive – breathing in the freshness of the ocean – seeing the suns rays dancing on the waves – hearing the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore – tasting the salt in the air – feeling the sea breezes through my hair – but most of all – sensing a deep calling in my soul.

The ocean has a special ‘pull’ for me – and I love this quote –

“My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea – and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me”

It’s as though the sea ‘calls me’ – calls something deep within my soul – and as I pondered on this – a phrase kept coming to me – “deep calls to deep” – and I came across this poem – one that I’d never read before – yet which summed up some of the feelings the ocean stirs within me –

Deep Calls to Deep – Author Unknown

Deep calls to deep
And my soul finds no resting place but Him
He is my God
The yearning of my soul His touch can still
And each rare moment
I felt His presence
I shall remember
And forever cherish
Deep calls to deep
And at His feast I am a welcomed guest
He gives me food
The hunger of my soul is laid to rest
And each rare moment
I felt His presence
I shall remember
And forever cherish
Deep calls to deep
For He created me to be His own
He understands
The joy and pain of life He too has known
And each rare moment
I felt His presence
I shall remember
And forever cherish

So – I cherish those times – when the ocean stirs my spirit – yet – I am thankful that – as this psalm says – ‘By day ( every day) the Lord commands His steadfast love – and at night His song is with me’

He is with me even in the darkest night – and I feel that call – as ‘deep calls to deep’ – and I respond with gladness.

Blessings – Lois
