The flow in the stream
move in both directions
Will run dry.
"Hey, Frank, your losing you marbles,
Water in a stream runs only
In one definite direction,
Well...except for tidewater.
Are you talking about tidewater?
Make yourself clear, knucklehead!
Water in a stream must run one way.
In both directions? Ha! Ha!"
"Sam, you're right, it is a tide flow,
But what is running is not water,
It's the flow of love ebbing and returning
In a loving personal relationship.
In a love where only one gives
The channel can and often runs dry,
When the other person fails
return the love in kind.
Sam, a marriage creates a stream,
passageway formed by a ceremony,
I would speak of a greater stream
eternal importance -- your destiny.
is our relationship with God, our Creator,
loves us unconditionally, always,
many pretend He isn't even there,
their streams run almost dry.
we rediscover His great love,
we must find it in the hurry of life,
return His love, we watch our lives
like a spring day in May.
know you have met Christians
essence just bubbles with joy,
in the midst of personal problems
your mind asks, "How can they do it?
Ask them and they will tell you
They found the love stream of Jesus,
Which flows into them and out
In a wonderful channel of love.
"Frank, how can I find God's love stream?"
"Sam, consider the awesomeness of God
So beyond our mind to comprehend and yet
In His love He sent Jesus to die for us.
Ponder this and soon your world will enlarge
Big enough to let some of His love
Pass down that channel of love and oops,
The nourishing flow will revive your life."
Happy stream restoration.
