River of Life


 This Scripture is from the closing chapter of the final book in the Bible, Revelation 22:1-5. 

Over the course of 12 years, Kathryn was blessed to have conversations about its meaning with the philosopher/theologian, Dallas Willard. May it bless you today as well:

"Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light  of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will  reign forever and ever."

Lord,  hear our prayers for healing and renewal.

 Your inexplicable joy can fill our minds and bodies when we seek with hopeful assurance.
