Got Any Rivers, Hymn

"Got any rivers you think are un crossable? Got any mountains you cannot tunnel through? God can do what no other power can do". The lyrics to a song by John Wesley, a great revivalist and accomplished song writer, speak to the practical SIDES of our everyday LIVES and remind us that we are not ALONE. Though at TIMES driven by stormy winds, and far we have ROAMED, Our strong faith REMINDS us that we have not reached our HOME. Figuratively, we all have crossed rivers once thought IMPOSSABLE and tunneled through gigantic mountains once deemed UNTHINKABLE. How many times have we completed missions and asked, "Did I do THAT?" Or what about the times you climbed mountains taller than Mount ARARAT? Do you remember the time your job was OUTSOURCED to India, or 10 years ago when you went through a horrible DIVORCE? Although it hurt you to the CORE and left you bruised, SOUR, and SORE, you overcame all of that and MORE, because you were blessed with God's POWER which did for you, as Mr. Wesley said, 'what no other power could do'. 072520PSCtest, In Honor Of John Wesley, Kim Rodrigues

The "stormy winds" seem to follow us through life as we try to stay one step ahead, Curtis. Losing a job and going through a divorce are huge challenges, but through faith you have met them well. Your poem is beautifully written, Curtis. A fave for me! Hugs, Carolyn
