Deep Enough
You once accused me of leaning on a God
To excuse my being shallow and weak.
You accused me of using Christ as a crutch.
You laughed at the notion of turning a cheek.

But I am deep enough to see centuries of wisdom
In a passage 4 lines long.
Deep enough to know my weakness
Will work to make me strong.

Deep enough to care for you
When you would just dismiss me.
Deep enough to see in you
God's wonder and beauty.

I am deeper than this lifetime.
I see past the world at hand.
I am deep enough to question
Until I finally understand.

I am deep enough to know that turning a cheek
Is anything but submitting.
It is a challenge and a bold proclamation
That I can take more of the venom you're spitting.

Very eliquently put from begining to end. A resounding Amen!
"I am deeper than this lifetime." Wo what a line this is absolutely great. This is a very strong, pivotal and summational statment. This says so much more about you than what is on the surface. Thank You. This one line alone has helped me with some problems of my own. Thank You!
