Mark 1:1-11Wading Into the WatersCopy_of_jesusbaptism1

Thursday, September 8, 2022

I am wondering what I might have thought if I had seen and heard John the Baptist telling the good news that freedom from fear was arriving.

I am wondering what I might have said if I had watched or even experienced the healing work of Christ and his apostles.

I am wondering what I might have done if I had been called into the river to immerse myself in the waters.

And then I realize that . . .

I have heard and seen . . .

I have watched and even experienced . . .

I have been called into the river . . .

And at times I wade into waters that are sometimes dark, murky and swirling.  At other times I thrill at the clarity and purity of the water.  And always my God walks with me to heal, to proclaim and to call.  I have but to answer with my hands, my feet, my heart and my will.
