Having God’s Waves and Billows pass over us is painful but necessary for growth and renewal. Although painful, it is always done out of Love for God is Love. And in due season we will reap a harvest if we do not lose heart in the process. Both David and Jonah know this process well and describe it below.
Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;
All Your waves and billows have gone over me. ~Psalm 42:7
For You cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the floods surrounded me;
All Your billows and Your waves passed over me. ~Jonah 2:3
