Waterless Waterfall


Yesterday I went to a place called Anderson Falls near Columbus, IN to photograph the waterfall.  As you can see the in above photograph that was a difficult task.  There little to no water flowing over the falls.

I began thinking.  My first thought was Jesus’ statement in John 7:38, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”.  Again like the other day I am reminded of the Church.

There should be thousands of gallons of water flowing over this falls.  We have had rainfall in the recent past that should have filled this river and the falls.  Yet, there is hardly no water.

Why would there be no water?  There could be an obstruction upstream from the falls.  Has the devil put an obstruction in your life that keeps you from being a waterfall.  I believe the sin of unbelief keeps the water obstructed in our lives.  Yes, unbelief.  Even God own people do not believe Him and take Him at His Word.  This is a sad testimony to each one of us.

It hope and pray that you and I are known for the “living water” flowing from our lives.

So, how are you doing?

Are You Drifting? 3

Hebrews 2:1, “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.”

The next truth about drifting should scare the stuffing out of us all.  Here it is.  By the time you hear the waterfalls it is too late. How many times have you watched some movie and someone is drifting along and then you hear the sound of the falls.  I had the pleasure of going to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan at the beginning of the month.  We photographed many beautiful places.  The one place I remember the most was the Taquahmanan falls.  I took a video of the falls.  The water was cascading and unbelievable gallons per hour.  The thing I remember the most is the sound of those falls.  It sounded even more majestic and powerful then they truly were.  Many people were captivated by them.

In a tourist situation the sound of the falls is a beautiful and relaxing sound.  When you are in a boat on the water the sound is far different.  As I write this my heart sinks just thinking about it.  Life has seen many casualties because they drifted and when they heard the sound of the falls it was too late.

So, how are you doing?
