Scripture encouragement: John 16:33
Cascading, pounding, rushing waters,
unwelcome, flooding, drowned.
Parched and thirsty, shrunk, and stagnant
flowing not at all,
abandoned, lonely, lost and stranded,
“Why, Lord, why?” we call.
His river is found in flood, in drought,
when life is not serene.
We find him whenever we reach out
and embrace His Son, our King.
It’s God’s river that carries us always,
through this life and onward still,
connected to His endless love,
through Christ, it is His will.
