'Deep' by Yemi Alafifuni: Navigating the Depths of God's Love

Yemi Alafifuni's latest release, 'Deep', has the subtitle 'The Journey', implying that this song symbolizes a journey we need to make to the Creator's heart. Yemi wrote this song during a period of intense reflection and an almost endless interest about the purest form of love.

Yemi Alafifuni - Deep: The Journey'Deep' is an intimate journey through a heavenly love landscape, with verses that express a constant bewildering at the depth of God's love and commitment to us. During the chorus, Yemi beautifully combines lyrics in both English and Yoruba, emphasizing God's love for all mankind and even more, the promise of a gift given to him when his daughter was born. A promise to love, come what may…

Yemi's lyrics connect with us on a personal level, echoing our own spiritual longings and reminding us of Christ's infinite mercy, as expressed in Ephesians 3:17-19. The song invites us to examine our relationship with God's love, a framework for living in His love and allowing His love to shape our identities and lives.

The challenge, joy, and amazement found in 'Deep' encourages us to think about how wide, high, and, most importantly, how deep God's love is for us. Play the song, close your eyes, and let it carry your heart to the depths of God's infinite love.
