Deep End

2/4/16 Deep End

You say that you are my friend
But I’ve gone off the deep end.
I was drowning in the kiddie pool
Being such a crazy blasted fool.
Fussing at and cussing out everyone
Instead of leading them to God’s Son.

Refrain/Chorus

I’m goin’ off the deep end!
I’m goin’ off the deep end!
Where God’s love and mercy flows!
Where my soul and spirit grows!
I’m goin’ off the deep end!
Yeah, give me the deep end!

I’m tired of judging the outside
Instead of loving the soul inside!
When we are laid in that old cold sod
We won’t be happy that we played God!
We may find that we did not make it at all
Or all our wonderful works are really straw.

Refrain

I won’t lose any of my sleep
Because you say I am too deep!
I can’t stand to be shallow
Or leaving my fields fallow!
I need to lose the rocks and stones
O God give life to these dry bones

Refrain

Even though I am somewhat old school
I cannot live in the kiddie pool.
I hate the old drama and silly strife
Jesus lead me into your full life!
Let the Spirit take you to His school!
Go deeper inside the holy pool!

Refrain

It is time to dump the old me!
So the new man is truly free!
No more of the Pharisaical jaw
Spouting free grace but practicing the law!
Leave the old kiddie pool behind!
Come into the deep end! It’s fine!

Refrain 2X fading

I recently read a note that said that I have “gone off the deep end” with my recent change of affiliation. Unfortunately, this person belongs to a group that basically consigns every one but their group to Hell or at best a “not separated” Christian. Indeed, it is all they know and thus hard for them to make a fair and informed assessment.  It inspired the poem/song above.

If I would still be a part of that group, I would respond harshly. Instead, staying with the symbolism, I would encourage that person and others like them to come out of the shallow end. Five feet is indeed deep if you are in the two foot zone.  😉

God is fond of the deep so if I have gone off the deep end then I say Glory to God for I may see things that I never saw before!

Dan_2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

1Co_2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Shalom! Maranatha!!
