Super Simple Sunday

Keep on Keeping on!
Salmon keep going upstream.

A salmon's whole goal is to get back to the place of their birth.
They are hatched, usually in a hatchery, it takes about a year to get to the ocean.
They spend 3-5 years there then go back to the place of their birth to spawn and die.
To get to the place of their birth the follow the taste of the water.
Since water is a symbol of God's Spirit we need to follow the taste of the Water.

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18
Sometimes our vision is just to keep going.

But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 2 Thessalonians 3:13

We will never reach our goal if we are distracted.
So Keep our eyes on God,
and follow the taste of the Water.

Getting back to the place of our birth--getting back to the God who created us!! Great analogy, Denise!!

Let us keep on seeking the Living Water--The Way, The Truth and The Life!!

I'm visiting for myself and Peggy today!! She has been ill for two days, otherwise I know she would have definitely stopped by herself.

Keep her in your prayers!!


Peggy said...

Have a SUPER SUNDAY as you start a fresh week in Jesus with our focus on Him!

It's amazing. Those salmon are often battered and near death when they get to the point of fulfilling their purposes. But you know what? That doesn't stop them. I wish I were as passionate for my purposes under heaven.
