“Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out.” – Pr.20:5

I want to know my purpose, my direction, my way for the day.
“What do I do?” I asked the Teacher.
“Let me dive into your heart and I’ll tell you,” He answered.
“Okay,” I said, “But how?”
“Just open it up.” He instructed.
So I opened the tiny door sealing shut my deep and dark heart.
Crash! The waves of deep waters found therein threw themselves against the banks of the now open door.
“But it’s so dark and deep, you’ll drown in there!” I voiced my fears.
“I can go anywhere,” said the Teacher and in a breath He was gone.
I felt the gentle slip of his plunge even in the tempest waters of my heart. Before my thoughts were compete, there He was standing in front of me again.
“Drink this.” He handed me a cup of cold water. I drank.
In an instant I knew my purpose for living, my direction for that moment and my way for that day.
“Your heart is deep and dark. If you dive in searching for answers, you’ll drown in confusion, but if you ask Me I will gladly go to the deepest depths of dark waters to draw out for you the small cup of understanding you seek. All you must do is ask and believe whatever I give is the only way!”
"If you need wisdom – if you want to know what God wants you to do – ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking, but when you ask be sure you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. People like that should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:5-8
