Deep calls to deep.

Glenmalure Waterfall

Waterfall at Glenmalure, on the approach to Lugnaquilla, Co. Wicklow.

In taking this picture on our recent trip to Co. Wicklow, I remembered these lines from Psalm 42:

Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.

By day the LORD directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.

(Psalm 42:7-8)

The Psalms are so refreshingly (sometimes even painfully) honest; you will not find here any pretense that a life trying to follow God will be an easy one.  The writer of this Psalm is thirsting and longing for God in the midst of overwhelming depression, but even in the deafening roar that threatens to engulf them, the trust in God remains – even if it is only hanging on by a thread, that is enough…
