In those moments of life when I feel like I’m drowning—the times I refuse to ride the ups and downs, the times I fight, or the times I’m too scared to even enter the current—those are the moments I find it most necessary to go back to the water.
When I have no words or direction, or feel overwhelmed, I find a lake or a stream. It’s the most honest form of prayer I have when I feel like I don’t have anything at all. I breathe in and out. Slow. Steady. Deep. I trust that words and thoughts aren’t necessary, and that the Word is already with me, knows me and is for me— whether I say anything or not.
