The River

The River
© 2014 S.D. Harden

Life is a River, deep and wide,
Sometimes filled with peace,
Sometimes filled with joyous songs,
Sometimes unfilled needs.

Sometimes its waters overflow
With endless health and strength
That dwindle to a narrow creek
Of weakness and decay.

Sometimes the waters rush into
A gaping waterfall
And suddenly a life can change
To what is there no more.

Ever rolling onward,
Onward to the sea,
With each dawn the River brings
Us to another journey.

And how we all respond
To what the River sends
Is all that really matters
When we come to the River’s end.

May we honor God
With all that the River brings
Wherever the River takes us
Till we reach Eternity.

PRAYER
Heavenly Father, help us to understand that it’s not WHAT we endure in this life that matters, but HOW we choose to endure it. May You give us the grace to honor You in every situation, no matter what may come our way, thank You, Lord, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
