The River Finds a Way……

“There’s a river of life flowing out of me…..”

YOU are that river….

One of the most powerful things God ever said to me is “The River finds a way.” And yes he does speak outside of the written word we see in our bibles. YES HE DOES!

How do I know? Because if everything he said were written down, there would not be enough books to contain it all! (His Word does say that, by the way). So with that said, I was upset. I’d been diligent for years, waiting for him to open doors for me in the church. I am over it now, but I got rejected so many times, it’s not even funny.

I hashed it out with God about whether HE was rejecting me, because i wanted to know WHAT I could do different so he would accept me on this great thing called ‘THE Minisry Team!” I was bad at softball and most sports, so I figured if I was rejected in doing things at church (besides cleaning it) there must be a reason that I needed to correct.

So I practiced, studied, prayed, practiced, studied, prayed………God says if you are faithful over a little he will trust you with more, so I’d do almost everything I was asked to do.

The years ticked by, and finally in 2015 I was asked to speak at Celebration Church in Lewistown, by my good friend, Karolyn Ridgeway. From there, I had many more ministry engagements.

See, God told me he had things to say through me. So everywhere I go I expect him to do just that.

At the Cafe, on the internet, in the books I write. I would have given up a long time ago if he had not said to me “THE RIVER FINDS A WAY.”

The river (of God) flows and carves out the earth, removing rocks sometimes, purifying things, carrying away debris…….

When we become his child and ask him to use us, at the very least we are part of this “RIVER OF LIFE” That actually flows OUT OF Him into us and onto others.

He let me know that day, “Keep moving and flowing with Me, Laura” ……and be part of my river of life! And I know today, he is urging you to do the same thing! Stop looking at what others call “success” and realize YOU ARE a success!

This is so important! If you are meant to make a living at doing ministry you will, but if not, don’t let it throw you. “THERE”S A RIVER OF LIFE FLOWING out from God……

“You might be his mouth or perhaps his Rod” Either way you’re part of this great and mighty Thing. “He’s the giver of life so let his Gospel Ring” ………HALLELUIAH!
