The Story of a River, Part 5

8 June 2009

Our river journey continues this week with the last set of lessons taken from the life of a river as it makes its way from mountain spring to the ocean.

After every flood we find moments of growth appearing along the riverbanks. This has come as a result of the rich soil deposits left behind after the flood.

Our lives show similar growth after an emotional flood time. We may not see it immediately but a new way of life has begun and a change of direction is imminent. Our lives take these turns that reveal new opportunities that we could not see before. These are to be grasped and used to anchor our new way of life. Growth will at first seem as pain and change but as we gain insight and experience we can look back with hindsight and begin to see the benefit of it all.
