Today please enjoy with me, The River of Life, written by Sandra Drescher as found in her book entitled Just Between God & Me.
As I sat on the bank of a river winding through the Virginia mountains, I saw the water as symbolizing my life. Like the water, flowing continually even though it doesn’t know its destination or what’s around the next bend, I can’t see far ahead in my life. I have to trust God to guide my path.
The falls in the river are like the rough areas in my life. When I’m faced with rough situations, they sometimes look unbearable. But when seen as part of the whole, they add beauty and sparkle to my life.
Inlets of water along the shore, at a standstill, had collected scum and debris. Again, I compared them to my life. If I don’t keep moving along God’s path, my life will get cluttered. The river of life is too exciting to refuse its flow.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Col. 3:17 NIV).
Thank You, Lord, for controlling the flow of my life. Teach me to follow even when I don’t know what is waiting around the next bend. Amen.
ABBA, yes. Thank You that You control the flow of our lives. HOLY SPIRIT, let us not forget and inspire and encourage us to argue less and less with the crooks and turns and bends and white water in the riverbed that is our individual lives. We come praying for our Cherished Ones listed at Praying for These, thanking You for their lives and trusting You with the present currents. Trusting You also with our IDOK Troops, requesting peace of mind and safety of spirit and soul for each of them. And I’m still asking You, ABBA, for a Third Great Awakening in America. I want to see it and be part of it, I pray. Thank You for each IDOK. I ask You to bless them in JESUS Name. Amen and amen.
Holy hugs, kt
Post Script – Art passed from this life to Heaven this afternoon. Jerry and I visited with Sula around 5 PM. She knows where he is but being here without him after 37 years of marriage is unthinkable — so your prayers are coveted. Thank you.
