Deep Calls To Deep: God Is Calling Us Deeper


I was walking on campus and stopped by this refreshing fountain – the sound is so calming & soothing. Ummm… can you imagine how relaxing it would be to walk in the cool of the day in the Garden with God and our family showered with His love before there were so many tempting distractions and shiny objects (like that dang fruit) that are never as great as they seem…we get tripped up in the shallow when we could scuba dive into the deep. Like C.S. Lewis said, “We are far too easily pleased.”

Whoa – when I let my imagination run wild✨ He takes me to a place in Him that we don’t have to wait for Heaven to experience – so overflowing with joy, peace, wonder and adventure. So fulfilling, like a (legal :D) high you never come down from… Everything God created that I’m drawn to might reflect Him but will never fully satisfy the thirst of my soul – so why not go to the source of it all, the Master Artist, the Living Water. I want to want the Gift Giver more than the gift the Ultimate Dreamer more than the dream. If the fall happened when we took our eyes off of Him our greatest success & rise is in our undivided devotion. Let’s go deep – be covered by the stream of God who is so real!

Man, if we only knew how rich God is and how everything else doesn’t even compare. The only way we can really love others created in His image is to know His love, so deep, so wide – so let’s go, let’s seek deeper with all we’ve got…if you don’t know where to start dive into His living Word the Bible and learn what our Father is like! Painting at the bottom from the Flourish Conference a while back all about jumping into the waterfalls and deepness of God –

“You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand
And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine… Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now…” From Hillsong’s Oceans

We Are One No Matter What Color: Unity Beyond Race & Differences

“I have given them the glory that You gave me, that they may be one as We are one— I in them and You in Me — so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me.” – Jesus’ prayer (in John 17:22-23)

No matter what society says, no matter what we see in the news God’s children are one in Christ. No matter the color of our skin we are sisters and brothers, made in God’s love for a purpose – we’re better together as His family. God’s love is unconditional and with our different races and colors we show His creativity and intent for this world – we’re His masterpiece! Let’s live at peace and appreciate one another and stand up against darkness that has tried to divide and set us against each other since the beginning and throughout history.

Shout out to my friend and brother Joo Chan who I met at Christ for the Nations while we were taking vocal lessons – I’m so inspired by him! He’s a passionate singer with a heart for God and people and just dropped his first EP “Process”, woooo! Check out his page Joochan.com and be inspired by his amazing sound and words. He came to the U.S. from Korea and went to Israel for the summer and played and ministered to people and is a true example of breaking barriers of culture to reach his fellow sisters and brothers. Keep on sharing your gifts and heart Joo Chan! Love you bro (and thanks for taking time to play at our video shoot. Thanks also Cordell Franklin for your amazing heart and gift in cinematography)!

Love has already won and we are His warriors who battle from His victory against both spiritual darkness and groups who are lost in bondage & inexcusable mindsets. We stand up against hate and fight for love by taking action and being the change we want to see – sometimes that’s in sharing your gifts, having conversations with people who are different, creating movements and activism, speaking up through whatever platform you have, and coming together to strategize how we can stop history from repeating itself.

Let’s show the world what real unity is by serving our neighborhoods and uniting in making a difference. None of us have all the answers but together with God’s wisdom we are the answer – no matter what we are one. 1️⃣- Juene Fleurmond, Editor of DreaminSoul.com

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

“Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19
