River of Life

You and I are called to be a river, not a stagnant pool. This river of life that flows to us, in order to receive God's full blessing, must also flow through us.

We are responsible for the spiritual health of others. This is an awesome responsibility, but God gives us every single tool we need to perform this job. No matter how wide our reach, you and I will affect those whom we touch. If we choose to use the tools God gives us, we will make a positive, life changing impact.

I am not Love's destination...I am Love's conduit.

As I sit here realizing the lives He has entrusted to me, the awesome responsibility bestowed upon me, and the ultimate grace given me to perform the task, I am not afraid. I am encouraged, awestruck, and empowered. God chose me to influence the lives of others. He gives you the same calling, and the same gift.

"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

- John 7:38 ESV
