When God Formed Rivers – Thoughts For 2016

 

Rivers Hey Naturals

 

Are you ready for 2016? What frame of mind are you in? Are you a go-getter or are you just going with the flow?

For me, I have decided 2016 is going to be all about Him. There is no if or but. No maybes or perhaps. I want my yes to be YES! and my no to be NO! Below is a poem I found by Shawn Bolz. It embodies the idea of walking the path set before you, your path and doing the things you are created for, effortlessly.

When God Formed Rivers

by Shawn Bolz

 

When God formed rivers,

they weren’t insecure as to where they should flow.

They didn’t ask, “Is there room for me?”

They burst forth without care,

and they went anywhere,

and forged new pass everywhere.

When God formed rivers,

they weren’t waiting to gain full strength.

They didn’t ask, “When should I go?”

They exploded with all their power and pushed,

changing landscapes and not bowing to it.

When God formed rivers,

they weren’t worried about their voice.

They didn’t ask, “Am I too loud?”

They screamed, they whispered, they laughed, and they boomed,

becoming a permanent sound on the earth.

When God formed rivers,

they weren’t wondering how they will be fed.

They didn’t ask, “What if I run dry?”

They offered four-course meals to the land around them,

becoming a source of power to creation.

When God formed rivers,

they weren’t worried about being populated.

They didn’t ask, “What if no one would live here?”

They expected, no, they demanded, life by their very presence,

becoming an essential part of creation’s growth.

This is when God formed rivers.

 

What a vision to live by! I pray this inspires you this year 2016. Happy New Year!
