Okay, random story from the last few days. I was having my quiet time a couple of days ago, and felt like God was speaking to me from Luke 5. It's the passage where Jesus tells Peter to "put out into deep water." I spent some time asking him if deep water symbolized anything. I'm not sure what it would have symbolized, but it just seemed like the kind of thing that might be symbolic of something else. After asking for a while, I felt like he was saying no. Basically, "deep water just means deep water."
So, I came home confused to say the least. Why would he tell me something that didn't really seem to mean anything? Anyway, I opened my email when I got home and had an email from a friend in Cairo. He and a friend were coming to the town where I live in order to go scuba diving this weekend. He asked if I wanted to go. I talked to my roommate about it, and we both decided that the best application of the word was to go diving.
So, long story short, I went scuba diving this weekend. I had a really fun time, and got to meet some local guys when I was on the boat and got a few of their phone numbers. It was a great time, but somehow I was expecting more. You know, maybe to meet some incredible person on the boat or something like that. It was a great time, but I was just hoping for something a little more . . . significant . . .
But it was a lot of fun! Who knows, something may come of it in the long run too.
