Flowing

Bumpy and exhilarating both describe the process of going with the flow. Resistance is natural–and worthless. I find surrender and trust incredibly helpful (and a lot more enjoyable).

My prayer

Sometimes I imagine that flowing with You will be a smooth ride. When life wakes me up, help me to relax in the moment, whatever it is bringing.

Biblical touchstones

God makes the waters flow. Psalm 147:18

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:23

The angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. Revelation 22:1

Invitation to prayer

Use your senses to remember a waterfall you have visited or seen. With your imagination linger as you hear it, feel it, smell it, sense it… What prayers are emerging in your heart, mind, body and imagination? Pray them now.
