The River Flow

Okay, blog break is over…I’m back on it…with no excuse since I have the wordpress app on the phone.

Just a quick thought this morning. There is a river described to the old testament prophet Ezekiel, in the 47th chapter of his book. It’s a river where life is sustained and fruit abounds. A picture of God in our lives, and the blessings that come from him.

So, I took a minute to list out all of the life giving aspects of God throughout my life (appropriate around Thanksgiving :-), which for me was really saving grace. Left to my own stupidity and self destruction, I would have been gone a long time ago.

Then I listed out all of the fruit bearing aspects of God in my life. I called these victories, because so many of them dealt with overcoming…which was truly only by His strength in my life. Which set me up to do things in life that were in aligement with His will and purpose.

It was a good exercise, one that makes you realize God’s continual pursuit in your life. He doesn’t change. His charecteristics are the same today as they were in the days of Ezekiel. His river still flows in our lives to bring life. His river doesn’t move, we must move towards it. We must take up residence where it flows.

Take a minute to list out God’s flow of blessings in your life. It’s good to recognize and remember how much God has provided.


Accomplishments and Change

I saw a great fortune cookie message Friday that read “don’t worry about stock market investments, invest in family.”. Thought it was quite timely considering the economy these days.

In digging around for that fortune message, for a picture in this blog…I found these two. Yes I tend to keep some of the good ones…it’s like a Chinese tweet :-)

These are actually profound statements. Every change that is for the better will require a great amount of work. They don’t come easy. But, in the end the results can be a great accomplishment.

What change are you working on this week? Don’t be discouraged, press on until you see it happen. And remember thsese two statements.
