Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Trust without borders...........this is my prayer. In deepest waters, Holy Spirit, lead me into the resting place of trust~ the arms of Jesus. In her book, Birthing the Miraculous, Heidi Baker talks about how Jesus asks us to get deep into the river, immersed in His heart, surrendering to His plan ~ always a journey that cannot be accomplished without Him. In Ezekiel 47 Ezekiel describes the River of Healing that he saw in a vision. He was first in ankle deep water, then knee deep, waist deep, and finally in water he could not swim across alone. It frightened him, but God sent an angel to take him across. Who do we trust when we are in deepest waters of our own making or of God's beckoning? God calls us to go deeper still, taking us through the death of self to a kiss of life from our Savior.
Trusting without borders does not come in a moment but a million moments found in the resting, in the counting, in the surrender, in immersing ourselves in the living waters of the One. Deeper still...Yes Lord, in the Presence let me walk with you upon the waters. Ann Voskamp says that one of the blessings she has received from counting the gifts is that she trusts her Savior more. She had "trust issues" until she started counting the gifts moment by every day moment ~ realizing how blessed she was, how much God was there for her.
Over the past two years Jesus has been healing me of my own trust issues. He has beckoned me into deeper water, encouraging me to leave the safety of the ankle or knee deep places where I held control and thought I was secure. Just in the past two weeks I have been on a journey into new, uncharted waters where Spirit has lead me and I have had to trust Him. He has both shaken and empowered me and whether the waters have been calm or stormy, I have only wanted more of His Presence. I do not begin to understand the mystery of it all, but I know that it is a beautiful place to be, a place to trust without borders.
