894th -- Let It Flow


We should always go through life with a carefree and lighthearted attitude
not allowing the pressures of this world to impact how we see life. The 
Lord who created all things has told us throughout Scripture to cast our 
burdens on Him and not allow worry or fear to enter into our hearts. It 
does us absolutely no good to fear what the future holds or to worry about
our tomorrows. When we take each day as it comes and get it in our minds
that all is well, we will find our days much more peaceful and enjoyable 
than we would otherwise. (Psalm 55:22) (Luke 12:32) (Isaiah 26:3)

The Lord Jesus declares in Matthew 6:31-33 “Therefore do not worry, saying,
‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For
after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows 
that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His
righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Be encouraged
to see the good before you and never the bad. Appreciate your many 
blessings and know that you are highly favored. Give God praise and thanks
for sustaining you and above all things don't worry about anything because 
faithful is He who has promised. (Psalm 34:1) (Psalm 111:1) (1 Thes. 5:23-24)

I hope you are encouraged and inspired by this message to always see life
with refreshed eyes and know that it's the simple things that bring the 
most joy.


I used to love to play in the woods near my home when I was a boy. I 
especially enjoyed sitting by a certain crystal clear mountain stream that
flowed musically down the side of a hill. Green moss covered the rocks and
made a comfortable seat on either side of it and when I would bend down I
could see my own smiling face reflected back at me. I used to love taking
a sip of its pure, sweet water. It always tasted like a drink from Heaven.

Going back in my mind to those carefree days beside those blessed waters 
reminds me of all the wonderful lessons they taught me. They taught me not
to grasp too tightly. If I did the water would seep through my fingers and
I would be left with nothing. Instead I learned to let the water flow over
my hand and to lift it gently in my cupped palm when I wanted a sip or to
water the daises, buttercups, and Queen Anne’s lace that lined the stream’s
banks. I learned too that just a few drops of that water helped those 
flowers to grow healthy and strong. Most of all I learned that I didn’t 
always have to be doing something to be living. Just sitting by that tiny 
mountain stream, listening to it gently splash over the rocks, and feeling 
its peace was all that I needed for a great afternoon.

That mountain stream is a lot like the river of God’s love that flows 
through our lives. Just like that stream God’s love can’t be grasped and 
held tightly. In order to drink from it and experience it we have to let 
it flow through us and use it to bless the world around us. A few drops of
that living water is all that we need to help us grow better and stronger
each day of our lives here. And sometimes it is good to just spend some 
time sitting quietly by the stream with God and let His peace fill us once
again. May you always let God’s loving water flow through your life then.
May you drink deep, live well, and pass the cup on to all you can.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Galatians 5:22-26 “...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, 
longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ's have crucified 
the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us
also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one 
another, envying one another.”

Matthew 5:5-9 Jesus declares
“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit
the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain
mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed 
are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth
not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself
unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things,
believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity 
never faileth...”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
