love sacrifices

“I tried breathing but water filled my lungs. sinking, helpless, I blacked out. You dived in, your robes flowing behind you. pushed water aside with each swimming stride, you sank to my depth, got wet, wrapped your arms around my limp body and picked me off the watery floor. though others would say she’s a goner, won’t last much longer, You said it is finished and died in my place. You gave me air. and a hug. the deepest parts of me—seen and loved. If not for you, Jesus, I’d be cold flesh decaying on the ocean bed.”

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
