Learning to Roll with the Flow

Your day starts okay, and then changes with each hour. Your carefully planned schedule falls apart, along with everything else. All of your good intentions and planning lay in the dust at your feet. With frustration, you wonder what happened, where you went wrong. Sound familiar to you?

A planned day that falls apart before your very eyes is like being in a canoe on an unfamiliar river. You never know what’s around the next bend until you get there. It’s not so much about controlling the situation, but learning to roll with the flow. You won’t change the rapids, so you might as well learn to enjoy the ride. So often, faith is like being in a canoe on an unfamiliar river. We can’t control the situation, but only trust within it.
