We need to be like a River that is ever-flowing.
Many years ago I used to sit by the River that flowed by my small town in Kansas. I sat there and let my thoughts flow just like the currents that swept over the branches and debris.
The River doesn’t stop flowing just because a branch or a rock is there. Over the years, the edges of the bank gets washed away, and some of the roots of the trees become exposed.
We allow so many things in this life to affect us and divert us from our journey. The obstacles that are in front of us can either stop us, or we can simply keep flowing and following our course that is set.
Many Rivers eventually flow into the deep ocean and there they become a part of it. Our lives should be like those Rivers that are ever-flowing, moving unobstructed in our journey to the great ocean.
This great ocean, like God Himself, will then welcome us as we become a part of it, finding our mission that travels beside caverns and hills.
We see great redwoods and oaks along our journeys. We flow through reeds and grasses, and even through various towns and cities.
Don’t allow the rocks and branches in this life to prevent you from flowing with the current of God.
Keep moving, following your course that is set, moving unencumbered to the sea.
