Overflowing Blessing – Are You in the Flow?

“Expect your every need to be met. Expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level …” ~ Eileen Caddy

We have a small creek that flows past our house. At one point, it pours over a large rock, splashing merrily into a mini-pool, as it continues its journey toward greater things. I love to hear the water as it constantly, effortlessly pours itself over the edge. Our pups play in the stream. As kids we searched for crayfish under rocks along the creek bed. On hot summer days, we splashed in the waterfall and waded in the stream. Our philosophy was “the wetter, the better!”

Spring rains and snow-melt push our stream to its banks and sometimes beyond, as it rushes to join the waters of the Allegheny River, then the Ohio, the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. Our little creek…separate from, but part of, the great earthly system of life-giving water.

I was thinking about that stream of ever-flowing water as I contemplated God’s ever-present goodness and supply. The Bible tells us that the windows of heaven are open unto us and that He pours our His blessing upon us so that there is not room enough to receive it. In Psalm 23, the psalmist declares, my cup runneth over. Deuteronomy promises that all these blessings shall come on you and overtake you.

Are you in the flow?
