He jumped in too!

She was drawn to adventure.  She was drawn to the River.  She listened to the songs about it and longed to join in.  She heard people speak of its power and longed to be overtaken by its strength.

But she was scared of it…

She was scared of the power it promised…

She was scared of the mystery in the path it would take that no one really knew…

She didn’t fully understand it and she was scared…

Then Jesus came along…

He said there was nothing to fear.  He was intimately united with the River and would go with her.  He knew she was not ready for the full force of what that River contained.  He knew she could not take the whole thing in all at once without His help.  So He threw her an inner tube and said jump in.  Let’s go together, He said.  I’ll be right beside you.  And He jumped on one too…and they floated along.  They rested as the River took them along the path.  They relaxed as the River made its twists and turns.  He pointed out the sights and sounds along the way.  They laughed and talked and played.

And soon…she was no longer afraid of the River…not with Him by her side.
