Searches The Depth
By Fred Blanchard
He sees beyond the rippling surface,
Down into the depths of murky waters,
Searching for the cause of the algae,
Looking for all things that are out of place.
Revealing cracks are scattered throughout,
Like the weathered fractures of a desert,
Allowing the spoils of earth to creep inside,
Giving birth to bacteria and of mold to sprout.
The spring of living waters became inhibited,
When held back at the source by unyielding self will,
Creating the state of a dangerous and toxic decay,
Deep inside the pit of the well’s soul, that’s infected.
Have confidence that the Lord who started doing His will in your life
will be faithful in completing the job.
(Philippians 1:6, paraphrased)
