This weekend I went camping and I felt led to study the “water.” The song “The River” by Jordan Feliz came to mind since we were on the Tennessee River. It begins with the lyrics: I know a place where we can go, to lay the troubles down eating your soul. I know a place where mercy flows, take the stains make you whiter than snow.” These lyrics reminded me that He is in control and I just need to leave all my worries with Him.
I observed how the water reflected the sky and it was an extension from heaven. This helped me to recall that He is everywhere. He is in the midst of everything and my how comforting that was!
I noticed how the sunlight danced on the waves. It shimmered and sparkled happily, but I could only see it when I was facing the sun. This was a neat example of when I am looking to Him, I will experience His joy and blessings.
When I looked at the water near the shore, it appeared still/peaceful. Still water is mentioned in Psalm 23 and it is a picture of the Lord’s provision and He is going to take care of all my needs. I am about to begin raising my support, and believe He was affirming me that He will make a way! The Lord restores my soul and I have been refreshed in His living water!
