In March, thanks to a lovely 40 Day One Word project created by Lisa Hite and shared by Lisa Burgess, I kept looking out for various occurrences of the word ‘flow’. In many ways, this exercise got me to go deeper into my Word of The Year. I felt called to flow deeper.
One of the most heartening of places that the word popped up is in my scripture reading. I read Psalm 1 and word ‘flowing’ jumped out at me. To paraphrase it read:
“Happy indeed is the (wo)man …… whose delight is in the law of the Lord …. He is like a tree planted beside the flowing waters, that yields its fruit in due season and whose leaves shall never fade and all that s/he does shall prosper”
What does it mean to be a tree by a spring of water?
Trees that have access to flowing water, drink deep. They have deep roots. The trees are plugged into the Source of life. They are fruitful.
I felt called to plug in to my faith a lot more through the month. Spending more time reading and reflecting.
I heard the call to go deeper within myself. I wrote less, I reflected more. Tried hard to look at things from a wiser and deeper perspective.
The call to flow deeper, was also a call to trust in the goodness of God, the abundance of the Universe. It was a call to let go of outcomes and just be.
