||Flow|| We find comfort in flowing with the current. We forget that we were made for more - more than just succumbing, more than comfort. We were made to find the current of the eternal, to fight against the waves of this world and stand boldly for what Jesus has proclaimed, for we have living waters within us.
And so, ebbing through life, we press on. Move forward and then retreat, and then push forth once again. In the chaos of it all, the uncertainty that this moment presents us with, we learn how fickle we can be. But with this flawed humanness comes perfect grace. Waters clear, washing us clean, making us whole, if only we dare to go against the current of the world.
For it is our bravery that counts, our courage to stand strong against what this world tells us and proclaim the nearness of God’s kingdom. To let these living waters within us flow freely for the world to see. It is our steps, as uncertain as they may be, in the direction of our saviour, that we find the shores of love lapping at our feet.
Move against the flow of this earth, with a tenacity that extends far beyond human ability. For you were made for more than just floating through this life, you were designed to stand with brave faith at the side of Jesus, and to let the gift of life-giving water flow from you.
“Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘Whoever believes in me, as scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.’” ||John 7:37-38||
