Hope Comes through Rolling on the River!

Sometimes hope comes with helpful hands. Sometimes hope comes through answered prayer. And sometimes hope comes from simply rolling on the river.

There is something restorative about getting out in God’s creation and getting away from everyday life. Cell phones are packed away and the hustle of the city and towns fade into the distance. The lists of everything that we want to get done get put aside…and we breathe…breathe in the fresh air…the water…the sunshine…and the fellowship of brothers, young and old.

Twenty four guys got to experience the peace that comes when you step away from hectic lives and stick a paddle in the water as they kayaked down the Thornapple River last Saturday. Three others joined them for a great meal over an open fire at the landing spot.

All them enjoyed connecting with God and each other in creation. Time well spent. Time that restores as we realize that we are not human doings but human beings!

Hope comes to us in these moments when we stop long enough to breathe…realize the goodness of God…and recognize that we are not alone. There are a lot of others paddling down the river of life with us.

Hope Weekly reminds you this week to breathe, to remember to unplug, and to experience the hope that comes when you meet God in creation and in your brothers and sisters on the journey. Until next week, God bless!

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!” Romans 15:13
