Thursday, we took the grands picnicking in the Pisgah National Park. The Davidson River, like all our mountain rivers, is "take your breath away cold." Our youngest, Molly, was thrilled to get her hands and feet in the cold river. She was going to reach and splash as long as Papa would hold her.
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Revelation 22:1
Jesus, The Water of Life, wants us to reach out and splash in His wonderful, refreshing love. He wants us to be thrilled with all He has to offer. Just as Molly wouldn't have been able to maintain herself in the cold swift currents, neither can we maintain ourselves in the currents of life. But we have a Papa, a Father, who will hold us and keep us, allowing us to be thrilled with His Son and the refreshing life only Jesus can give us.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.Revelation 22:17
Are you thirsty? Can you hear Jesus calling you? If you have never come to Jesus, repenting of your sins, today could be the best day of the rest of your life. He will give you The Water of Life freely and hold you forever. Trust Him.
Won't you leave a comment about your relationship with Jesus, the Water of LIfe?
Have you been in the creeks this summer?
They are teaming with life!
In the water, under the rocks, along the edges of the banks and in sandbars, is abundant life.
Without the flowing water none of the life would exist.
Without Jesus, the Water of Life, there would be no eternal life.
This summer take a wading hike with an adult.
Many of the parks have junior ranger programs that let you explore the life in the rivers and streams. The rangers can help you name the creatures you find.
If you and your adult are going on your own, you might want to take an identification guide of aquatic animals for your area.
