The Deep End

I stand in shallow water and see the ocean’s bed at my feet and I am secure. I dare not walk out where blue shades become darkened as my footing will slip. I never learned how to conquer the waves.

A soul is deeper than the sea. The core of who I am and where I’m found. The deeper I search it the more I can breathe. No darkness hides me but light envelopes me. Created for where God should dwell, I need not be alone.

Body, mind, spirit
Have they more worth than the soul
Sun in all seasons wants us to write about soul, whether soulful, soul food, anything about soul. Well, we all have one and should give it some mind.

    A soul is deeper than the sea, the depth is unknown in so many ways, but gathers strength from light even in the deep abyss.

    I love “A soul is deeper than the sea.” Love the way the narrator knows the waves, and her limitations as to its depths.

  8. I think it’s deeper too… a shallow soul doesn’t sound good at all.

    Love this pursuit, plumbing the depths of the soul. Far deeper and more mysterious than the sea. Good thing you’ve got God’s light to lead the way

    Perhaps the soul is really the image of God in us!
