Love is Flowing like a River
Our lives are like rivers; they keep on flowing from their source,
GOD, to the closing of our earthly time here. We do not stop living
after death for we live through all eternity, forever that is,
without any end, with God.
The prophet Ezekiel takes us on a journey where water is flowing
gently from the
Temple where Godís Glory existed in the Holy of Holies.
This may remind us of our Baptism. At that time the Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit came to live within us. We became children of God,
and were given a promise of living forever with God, His angels, and
with the saints. This is because Jesus died for us to make it
possible for all who have accepted Him.
The gentle flow of water was only ankle deep. The flow became knee
deep, then waist deep, until finally Ezekiel could not walk in it;
he had to swim. Is our life like that? Yes, in different ways. Our
life flows toward another day, another year, from babyhood to
youth to adulthood. But more important than physical growth is
becoming the person that God intends us to be. Not to become the
person that God wants us to be can be the greatest tragedy of our
life. Godís grace is always there to help us grow spiritually. Seek
His Presence and come to know more deeply the love God holds for
each of us. Then love Him in return.

our Faith with your family or friends? This time it would be about
what you read above. Ask the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart.
We grow by listening to others and sharing with them.
