Have you ever tried to swim upstream? If you have, you know it doesn’t work very well. You spend an awful lot of energy to get nowhere. You don’t have to live long to realize life has lots of undercurrents that can pull you down if you’re not careful. Life keeps on flowing regardless if we like the current circumstances of our life or not. When hard times come, we have two choices. We can either go with the flow or we can essentially drown ourselves in our own pity, anger, resentment, etc. The best way to calm the raging waters of life is to go with God’s flow, and the best way to do that is by starting each morning in God’s word. Let God use these short devotions to help you navigate the streams of your life.
