In #55 of Sister Faustina Kowalska’s Diary she received spiritual counsel from Father Adrasz, S.J. This is one of Father’s instructions for St. Faustina:
“Let God push your boat out into the deep waters, toward the unfathomable depths of the interior life.”
Are we afraid to let Jesus into the deep depths of our interior life? Do we allow God into our lives enough so He can change us? So the Lord is able to transform each of us into better beings? Do we stop our boat from entering into deep waters? Do we put limits on what we will allow God to do in each of our lives? Do we put a shield up because we are afraid to change?
I pray, talk to God, trust in the Lord’s will for me more than I used to but. . . I find myself asking whether I allow God into the deep waters of my soul. Do I only allow God to enter the shallow depths of my interior self? Do I stop God from pushing my boat into deep waters? I am guarded to a certain degree because of past events which happened in my life. While I trust in God more than I used to I know that I need to allow Him enter the deepest depths of my soul. I need to not push back and stop my boat from entering deeper waters. God Bless.
