Thinking deep - Why?

Sometimes, I just feel like, "What is the point of thinking deep?". Usually, after a profound thought crosses my head, I might ponder on it for a moment, and then it will fly away, never to be found again. Deep thoughts never really go to my heart, they just stay in my head for awhile, and then go somewhere else. I sometimes think that if I will forget whatever supposedly "profound' and "insightful" thought, why bother to think about it, and why bother to make some deep conclusion from it? When I feel this way, I usually remember why I started thinking deep in the first place. I say that I have 3 reasons for looking into life to get more out of it.

1. The meaning of deep

The meaning of deep in my mind is something that is far below the surface. Although, this is usually meant with things such as the sea, I think it also shows what a deep thought is. A deep thought is also something that is below the surface. It has to be dug up to be found. It might not be quite obvious to start with, but as you dig more, you find the treasure under the vast expanse of the ocean. This always makes me feel like it is worth it to keep digging deeper, and finding the treasure in life.

2. The feeling of deep

What also makes me keep going is the feeling of knowing what is behind it all, being able to understand the feelings and background to a situation. This also keeps me wanting to think deep, and to try and understand.

3. The God in deep

Ultimately, it comes down to what I think is the most important. God made humans to be able to think deep. It says in the bible that he made humans to be able to understand eternity (which is a pretty deep thought). Plus, as the 1st reason shows, deep is the thing that is in our hearts, deep under our outer appearance. I always put God deep in my heart, where he changes me. Like the sea. Even things deep in the water, can still affect the surface.

In the end, I am always amazed at the things I find by thinking deep. It shows that God is everywhere, and that he is behind everything. By putting him in my life, I know that he will take care of me.
