A few years ago my wife and I spent several days snorkeling. If you’ve never done it, make it a point to go to the ocean sometime and spend the day just taking it in. You just can’t believe the beauty that is hidden until you go below the surface.
While snorkeling, I made this observation. It really doesn’t matter how turbulent the surface of the water is because it’s calm beneath the surface. The deeper you go, the calmer the water. There is an interesting spiritual principle in that observation. The deeper you go in your day to day relationship with God, the more peace you experience. Don’t just take my word for it. Psalm 119:165 says, “Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble. Take the time to go “below the surface” in your relationship with Christ. You just might find yourself finding the treasure of a peace-filled life.
