Enter the Flow

Headwaters of the Jordan River

At the headwaters of the Jordan River is a magnificent nature preserve. The area is filled with life–fish, birds, fruit trees, plants and flowers. All seem to join in the flow–growing, moving, inspiring. Words are insufficient to describe the loveliness of this place.

I imagined walking in the cool of the day with the Lord in this paradise–talking with Him, enjoying His presence, resting in His peace, loving Him, praising Him for all He is and does. I’ve never felt such communion with God. Thank you, Holy Father! God’s love keeps me searching, learning, knowing, moving. It does that for you too. His amazing love stimulates our creativity in singing or playing musical instruments, making things whether building structures or designing clothes or jewelry, writing novels or nonfiction. I could go on and on. Be encouraged to accept God’s love and enter life’s flow. Receive abundant life the Father is so willing to give you.

The Dead Sea

Dam the flow with self-centeredness and become like the Dead Sea, which has not outflow. God gives everyone gifts to use in creativity and purpose. Failure to enter the flow causes people to feel emptiness, loneliness, discouragement, frustration and despair. It doesn’t have to be this way. God’s love is bigger than any disappointment or failure or loss in your life. He says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

Two oxen are yoked together to increase their strength to do the work. Think what it would be like to be yoked with Jesus who is gentle and humble. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. He will partner with you to accomplish all He calls you to do. You will be fulfilled and at peace with your God.

Prayer: Thank you, Father God, for your creation that speaks so vividly of You. Thank you for Jesus who is our partner in faith, sharing our burdens and empowering us to do more than we could imagine. In His great name we pray, Amen.

Author of more than two hundred articles, stories and devotions, my book, A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD, is a compilation of devotions from my visit to Israel in 2015. On tour I took notes and pictures because it was too beautiful not to share. The Bible came alive to me, and I discovered I was not only walking in the Holy Lands; I was walking closer to God. I invite you to enjoy the pictures and devotions on my blog at www.sueloeffler.com. My prayer is that you will walk closer to God too. I have taught Sunday school more than twenty years, mentored young women and volunteered as a hospital chaplain. Today I lead Women's Bible studies in my home, and I write two blogs--A Closer Walk With God at www.sueloeffler.com and Have a Little Talk With Jesus at www.sueloeffler.net. Visit often and/or subscribe/follow. Showers of blessings on you.
