May 25, 2023 - Good Morning! It's Thursday, May 25.
There's a place in Wyoming, high up in the Teton Mountains, called Two Ocean Pass. In that place, situated atop the Continental Divide, there is a small stream that divides into two creeks. The creek on the left joins up with the Mississippi River and flows through the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. The creek on the right connects to the Columbia River and ends up in the Pacific. This place is called "The Parting of the Waters". A small, seemingly unimportant place that, eventually, has tremendous and monumental impact.
Looking back, can you pinpoint some "parting of the waters" moments in your life? Small, seemingly unimportant decisions that, eventually, had tremendous and monumental impact on you, your family, your career, your spiritual journey. Moments that you chose to go left instead of right, when you chose to say yes instead of no. Of course, in hindsight, we can all identify times like that. And each of us has moments like that waiting for us in our future. We take comfort and instruction from the wisdom of Solomon, when he wrote in Proverbs 3:5-6...
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.
Perhaps there is a "parting of the waters" waiting for you today. Surround that decision with prayer. Allow God to be your spiritual GPS. Let Him direct your path.
Meet you back here tomorrow,
