Rivers of Life.......
Have you ever stood on a bridge that crosses a flowing river and just stood there a while and noticed that the water keeps coming right at you, never stopping? Have you imagined how the water is rushing past you and cleansing you of all your worldly sins and cares? It is so calming and reassuring to see and hear and smell the river as it constantly approaches us...always approaching and never receding.
I like to think God's love is like that---always coming toward us so that all we have to do to experience His calming hand is to just let Him inside.
And I think God made the rivers and mountains and woodlands and oceans and skies so beautiful and awe-inspiring so that, when we see His magnificent works of nature, we will be reminded of Him and His power and the fact that He is all around us all the time, and all we have to do is just open our hearts to Him and He will enter.
