"Up a creek without a paddle."
We've all heard the expression and we all know what it means. But in Christian faith those six words take on a new meaning...
As we travel down the river of life we cannot go without a paddle. We cannot rely on our strength alone to get us where we are going.We have to have a paddle and that paddle is the Lord.
We've all traveled the long journey down that river without any help, but it's really useless. Where do we get?
Nowhere. We can't complete the task without the strength of a sturdy paddle.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding
Proverbs 3:5 NIV
When you jump into your "boat" and find yourself up a creek without a paddle don't try to go it alone.
Rely on the one paddle that will get you through the journey of life.
If you don't rely on the Lord, you will continue to go in circles, drift into the unknown and fall over the edge...
So today, don't be that person up a creek without a paddle, be that person who has enough sense to grab the paddle!
