Rough Water Rocks
We recently enjoyed an outing to the river. The kids had a wonderful time wading and discovering beautiful patterns in the unique river rocks God had placed there for them to find. What was interesting was that the rocks looks much different under the water than when they are dry. Many of them were more beautiful when wet. We could see where the rough water of the river's current had worn down the rough edges on many of the rocks and made them smooth and their patterns easier to be seen. The wet rocks glittered beautifully in the sunlight.
Rough Water Seasons of Life
I was reminded that when God places me in the rough waters in my life, it is so that He can wear down my rough edges and make the beautiful pattern of His love and grace more visible to others. May I, like those river rocks, trust Him and always seek to shine in the SON-light, a reflection the Creator God to those around me.
