On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty , let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”
Ancient of Days
is evidence of Divine Heart
leaving fingerprints on earth
and quenching my thirst
like no other art
is Mercy’s Arms outstretched in love
healing, helping, holding
and bringing hope that flows
from Heaven’s throne above
is Emmanuel’s selflessness displayed
in providing the only way
from sin-stained to saved
through Ancient of Days!
Where, in nature, have you seen evidence of a Designer? Water in the form of creeks, rivers, and lakes always causes me to ponder the Author of creation. On this particular day, that my son and I hiked into see this waterfall ( the first time for both of us), it was especially inspiring. I literally broke out into an old song that begins with, “You are awesome in this place, mighty God. You are awesome in this place, Abba Father…”
It wasn’t just about the loud roar of the waterfall or the relief of having safely traversed a very steep hike down a ravine (using ropes kindly attached to trees by previous people), or even that we’d walked past enormous old growth cedars. It was about my son. My firstborn son.
I love him – a lot! He’s been through a deep valley recently, and my heart rejoices to see him climbing out of it. Now, if I , as an imperfect mother, can love my son so deeply… how much more so does God love us?
Dear Creator God,
Thank you for your awesome creation that displays some of your power and glory. Abba Father, I want to thank you also for loving our children even more than my husband and I do. Continue your good work in them and us, and enable me to keep praying faithfully for your perfect will to be done in these young lives. And mighty God, may your will be done in my life too!
In your Son’s name,
