“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.” 
Psalm 42:7 (NIV)
 

One summer I did summer staff at a Young Life camp for a month and throughout that month we sang a song that goes,

All who are thirsty, all who are weak;
Come to the fountain, dip your heart in the stream of life;
Let the pain and the sorrow be washed away
In the waves of his mercy

As deep cries out to deep

We sing come Lord Jesus come


If you’ve heard it, you know what a beautiful song it is, but for most of the month, I had no idea what “deep crying out to deep” meant.  I finally asked someone and they told me it was the depths of your heart crying out to the depths of the Lord’s heart.  Months later, I found this verse in Psalm 42, “Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.”

From the depths of my heart, I deeply desire more of the Lord.  I want to be swept away by His living water and saturated by His all-consuming presence.  I long for the deepest place of my heart to connect with the deepest place of His heart. 
 

Lord, from the deepest part of my heart, I long for more of You.  I long to be swept away by Your presence.  I long to know the deepest parts of Your heart.  I want to cry out for more of you every day—may I never have enough of You.  You are all my heart longs for and adores. With all that I am, may I love and glorify You forever and ever.
