Life is like a sea. We have high tides and low ones. Days filled with joy and with sorrow. Sometimes, it gets to be too much and we feel like we are drowning in a flood. In reality, when it feels like this, the truth is, we’re a dry river bed. Cracked, bleeding, unable to sustain positive life. To fill ourselves up.
God gives us Himself, His Son, His words, and His people. He gives us brothers and sisters, family, friends, mentors, and strangers (you never know how one will touch you). We are a prideful people. Usually willing to be there for others, but too proud to let others be there for ourselves. Let God take care of you, fill up your river, by being in community. Turn to friends when you need to. Cry. Scream. Yell at God. It’s okay, He understands! And He wants you to communicate with Him. Let God fill you up.
