The river flows

It brings life to dead places

Do you know that song?

The river Jesus.

He brings life to dead places.

A flood is coming

It is surging now

Consuming the land

The sky

The Earth beneath

And we are caught in it.

It is Life.

It will change what we know

For some of us

Some of us know it already.

Do you?


  1. "To the river I am going bringing sins I cannot bear
    Come and cleanse me, come forgive me Lord I need to meet you there..." (from To The River I Am Going song by Brian Doerksen)

    How awesome to go to the River and be like a tree planted in the water that sends out its roots by the stream! Love this post!
    We need that Flood desperately at these trying times! Blessings to you.

  2. Yes I know that Jesus Christ is my Lord and because of His sacrifice and God's calling I can know Him and love Him more each day. Beautiful poem!

  3. I really like this post. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. A beautiful way to get your message across.

  5. As my husband says "Why does life have to be so hard?".

  6. Your poem? It's beautifully written.

  7. Beautiful. I did not know that as a song, but it sounds like a good one to sing. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  8. Belo!
    Uma boa semana com muita saúde.
    Um beijo.

  9. Hi Sandi,
    that river of life is the only water that soaks us in the Word of God. I love washing in it daily.

  10. I like the flowing of a river; even when it overflows a little and brings life to its environment.
    I don't like it when it gets nasty and causes big flooding, endangering people and property.

    olive branches and boughs of leafy trees!

  12. Love your poem Sandi. It speaks to my heart. Hugs!

  13. I don't know that hymn, Sandi but what a lovely thought! Take care!

  14. Such beautiful words, Sandi. I really liked this.
