Leonardo da Vinci once said, "In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time."
I give this quote because not only is it true, it is how I have started looking at life now that I am a River Steward. Every time I pass by a river now, I watch it. I watch it as it moves downstream, winding and carving its own path. the river doesn't stop. It is continually flowing no matter the amount of water it holds. when I wake up in the morning, the river is flowing. When I go to sleep at night, the river is flowing. It moves with a purpose, like we do through life.
As I look at the river now, I see my life. My life is continually moving forward and not stopping for anything. Much like the river, it carves its own path and doesn't stop flowing. Whether we have good days or bad days, life goes on. If the river has 2 inches of water or 2 meters, it goes on. Whatever is going on around us shouldn't stop us from staying on life's path that God has for us. We move down the river of life with a purpose and stop for nothing. We all have goals in life and God has a plan for us. Life has challenges, but it is imperative that we keep moving downstream towards our goals and what we feel is right.
Stay on life's path, bring life to people as you continue on your journey, and keep floating on that river.
