Headwaters...


Living From Glory To Glory..

Peace like a river...

There are so many twists and turns;
Deep waters and calm waters;
Clear water and murky waters.
Fast and furious
But a River only flows in one direction...

Wild currents, and sedate pools.
Yet all part of the very same stream of water.

Every stream or river has a starting point...

The Lord spoke to me one time and He said the word to me;
Headwaters...

I have pondered and prayed about this word many times!

I find my peace in Him,
My Headwaters...

Always flowing fresh and powerful,
New and Living waters...

Why drink from a tiny wee cup when we have a fountain;
pure and never runs dry.

This world will pull you along sometimes so strong that the current,
Can and will take you under. But a good strong swimmer
takes precautions and stays out of the currents.
Keep a watch for false doctrine;
Always check the scripture and read above and below
in content of what is being taught!

Staying away from rough waters ahead is just plain old fashion wisdom!
Because we know that storms are coming;
In the natural and the spiritual!

Yet we are called to sit beside the still waters;
to refresh ourselves!

Come sit a while and listen to the water bubbling and flowing;
To a place where it is flowing into another body of water.
Flowing and Growing and gaining wisdom and strength.

Headwaters, The source from which something proceeds 
or is supplied.

Have you made the Lord Jesus Christ your headwaters?

When I was reading this I was thinking of other sorts of headwaters and rapids that we don't expect. My sister-in-law went into hospital for an operation (quite straight forward and simple) and now fighting for her life with a raging infection. She could die. This is a rapid or headwater that has arrived unexpected to us all and it has reminded us to have complete faith in the Lord and trust his direction and decisions in life.

Have a lovely week ahead and may you sail in calm waters this week.

This is a very special word Rox. It is very deep and meaningful, and means a lot to me. Thanks for posting. All things do flow from Him. We had another huge outpouring of rain last night. It filled our creek into a river again. Love that.
Blessings,
Pam

Beautiful post Roxy.... wonderful words of life.... saw your comment on Debbies blog and had to check yours out because of the blog name.. I once heard a wonderful message on the passage in 2 Corinthians 1
3 : 18 "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." In the message it was shared that the word glory unto glory could also mean reading unto reading. ... as we behold the Lord in reading His word ee are changed to unto the same image from reading unto reading. He is the only one I have heard use it but believe filling with the Word does now change us internally....from reading unto reading ..

I love your thoughts on calm and not so calm waters.
I am struggling a little with health but not like that other dear lady who struggles for her life so pray for her and her dear ones. Have joined your blog... hope you might pop over to mine.
