Sometimes, that regular cup of coffee isn’t enough. Sometimes, I need an extra shot of espresso. Something a little stronger, a little deeper, with more staying power. According to my coffee-expert siblings, this is called a depth charge.
In my day to day life, every once in awhile, my thinking gets lazy or sluggish, and I need an “extra shot of espresso” in my thinking. I need to add a little depth to my thoughts. Dig a little deeper into God’s Word. Strengthen beliefs or opinions that I have perhaps taken for granted without ever really investigating to see if they are Biblical and true.
I need a depth charge, if you will.
So I put them here, not because I want to tell you how you should think, but just to share how the Lord is working in my own heart and mind. It is not my intent to tell you how or what to think. Please take these for how they are intended–as an encouragement to dig into what you believe and why you believe it.
(Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always to give an answer of the hope that is within you, in meekness and fear.)
