As the water moves faster and in more directions, it’s harder to distinguish my floating from my paddling.
So these days I’m learning about floating through the rapids. The back-to-school, work till 5, juggling kids, teaching class, what’s for dinner, where’s my socks, have I remembered to kiss you today kind of rush of life’s river. The kind that can crash you into the rocks without warning and whose path is harder to see past the moment.
No, it’s not as graceful as green pastures and still waters. It’s not as easy for the floating.
But it’s the perfect time to remind myself to trust the flow, more importantly, trust the One who directs the stream. Even the fast one. And enjoy the ride.
