“The Water That Flows Over Stones Makes The Best Music”
In our Christian walk if we desire to be where the action is we must find places of challenge and opportunities for service.
A pastor friend once said, "If things go along too smoothly, I get a little worried!" He was pointing out the danger of complacency. An attitude that weakens our spiritual strength and inevitably leads to defeat. Rather than avoiding adversity or a difficult circumstance we need to accept them as a challenge or opportunity for growth. The sound of a flowing stream over a rough bed of stones produces a beautiful and melodious sound. A course of water that goes unimpeded by rock or barrier makes no sound. There is something inspirational, even soothing, about the sound of water working its way and bubbling down a rock laden stream. Your life will make a wonderful sound as you find your way through the maze of difficulties and challenges with God's help.
