After my second year in college, I did summer staff at a Young Life camp for a month and throughout that month we sang the song “All Who Are Thirsty” that I referenced last Monday. They lyrics sing,
As deep cries out to deep
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.”
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. Amen.
