Upon reflection on my post "Getting to the Deep Waters", I have come to realize that I do have several distant amamchara in my life. G~, M~, R~, you know who you are. Unfortunately, these dear friends are not part of my daily life and are slightly younger than I am.
I now realize that in my prior post I was thinking of a much older amamchara who has swam in the deep water much longer than I have. A fellow Christ-Follower and mystic who has walked through the "Dark Night of The Soul", spent hours in silent contemplation, has a passion for Christ and is willing to share their life with a novice like myself.
My desire is to grow in the disciplines of Christ and walk with others who take the call of discipleship seriously. I’m tired of the shallows! Give me deep waters, strong currents, vibrant life, a school of fellow deep water travelers who are unafraid to the rigors of a deeper experience with God.
This is the cry of my heart.
