Yesterday morning we added a newer-to-us song to our worship set list. Chris Tomlin’s “Waterfall” is an amazing worship song with water being representative of God’s love for us. When you think about it, it is definitely an excellent metaphor for the all-encompassing love of God.
The song speaks of our desert souls when God is not in the middle. However, God comes into the picture like a flood, touching everything and changing our dry, drought covered souls.
“Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me”
I imagine myself standing at the bottom of a waterfall, under the vertical river. A waterfall has no master, as it changes the rock face itself. It makes itself known by its sheer power, changing landscapes and eco systems just by existing.
God’s love works in the same way. His love knows no bounds; there is no way to stop it. Try to stand up to it, challenging its magnitude all you like, but you will succumb to its strength. Instead of resisting, it’s so much easier to give in, drinking it all in. Allow your dry soul to become saturated in His love and mercy. Your life will never be the same.
