As I sat near a stream, I started thinking about people being like streams. The more I thought about it the more I realized this:
Running water doesn’t know its destination; it just keeps on going. As born-again Christians we know we will end up in heaven, but we don’t always know where God wants us next.
This is a difficult concept for me to really apply. I like to know what is going on and what is going to happen. In life, I can’t always have those answers. I may know what is going on for the day, but I don’t always know what is going on tomorrow or if I will even finish today.
This scares me to know that my life isn’t in control, but what comforts me is the fact that I know who is in control. God is in control, and no matter what happens, He is there to help me through it – to be the only one who understands, the only one who knows exactly what I am feeling at every second of every day. That is an amazing comfort! We know where our destination is, but we need to seek God for the next step!
