The Water Never Stands Still

The water never stands still

Never runs back to visit
    to risk tearing open old wounds
    for a peak at what once was--
         perhaps it will be again...

But water can only look forward.

It cannot worry
     about the life it left behind;
     about troubles that have always been--
         the water only moves on
And its beauty never fades

Rushing forth to the unknown
    a path cut deep in the earth
    cradling unfazed molecules
         unconcerned, unbreakable
Flowing gently toward something...

The water never stands still
    it lives to reach its paradise
    carrying its dirt and debris
         along its winding twists and turns
Until its all melded together
    one body,
    one heartbeat,
         flowing at peace.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
