Retention pond

Most days I pass by a couple of retention ponds. In this season of cold weather, I have noticed how much more likely they are to ice over than a stream that is running. I also have seen that even if a stream begins to freeze, it is much more quickly thawed than the retention pond.

I believe it was nature's reminder to me today, that my life should be one that is passionately stirred up for God. I should be moving in the direction of following Him. I should not allow my relationship with Him to become stagnant. As it becomes more and more stagnant, it is easier for me to be cold toward him, and for that coldness to last longer.

God, give me a heart that moves toward you rather than getting stagnant.
