Upstream


So I sat in back.  Watched.  Wiped away tears and couldn’t for the life of me wipe the smile off my face.

Healing is always longed for, begged for, prayed for, searched for…but when it happens, it’s so unexpected.

I live in today, more so all the time.  I’ve made that change, and it is good. Not easy, but really good.

God is both in my today, yet simultaneously in my yesterdays, and my tomorrows.. I love that because it means He is waaaay ahead on what concerns me.

Last night was one of those what concerns me moments.  I got to see transformation, healing, hope.The gratitude just kept rolling through me.  I can’t alter our yesterdays but I can remember them, and I do.  I couldn’t see beyond circumstances in those days, but God was so far upstream that I wondered where He was.

My realization is that the waters parted because God was upstream pulling them apart, so a crossing was safe.

I remember thinking that there is no healing on the menu, no restoration to be had.

The truth last night? When there seems to be no way…God makes a way.

One thought on “Upstream

  1. Susan — I needed to be reminded of that little chorus:
    “God will make a way where there seems to be no way.
    He works in ways we cannot see
    He will make a way for me…”
    Perfect for what I’m going through.
    Love you — Sally
