The water was running across the road and then forming a stream heading down the hill.
As I moved along the road, I noticed the water was pouring out of the side of the hill all along it and the stream of water was growing as it continued in a downward path.
Eventually the stream emptied into a pond which sits within eyesight of the road.
On the far side of the pond there is another stream that provides the overflow for the water when the pond is completely filled.
As we continue to follow the water, it empties into a small river which empties into a lake.
The water spills over the lake dam and pours into a larger river. This river empties into a larger river and eventually the river empties into the ocean.
As I walked and thought of all this water and where it eventually ends up, I began to think of God's love. He is willing to pour out His love upon us to the point where we are saturated. The natural course of His love then flows out from us and affects those who we come into contact. Those who are influenced by our outpouring of His grace are then prompted to allow His love to spill over and influence those in their wake. God's love continues to saturate the world around us until it empties into the vast world we occupy. For all this to happen we must be willing to stand in the midst of His outpouring through searching His Word, Seeking fellowship with Godly community, and petitioning Him through prayer. Once He has filled us--we cannot help but overflow upon the world. What a great blessing that there are lessons of God and His character all around us. We only have to turn our eyes upon Him and He will teach us and use us for His Good Pleasure.
