The mountain stream tumbled over the rocks, softening the jagged edges, smoothing the crevices into one complete beautiful stone. Day after day, moment by moment, the flowing water did its work transforming the broken places of the stone.

I think of the broken places in my life – the loss of loved ones, unemployment, a beautiful marriage destroyed. I think of the jagged places that are sharp and painful. I think of the crevices that run deep and allow my heart to bleed when I least expect it.

And then I think of the Living Water of my God that flows over and through my heart. Day after day, moment by moment … ever-flowing, ever-washing, ever-smoothing away the jagged, broken places.

His grace is amazing indeed.

“But God shows undeserved kindness to everyone. That’s why He appointed Christ Jesus to choose you to share in His eternal glory. 
You will suffer for a while, but God will make you complete, steady, strong, and firm.” 
~ 1 Peter 5:10, CEV
