See God In…

…the surprises!

A close-up of a water droplet falling from an icicle accompanies a devotional post at RivenJoiner.com.

Warm sunshine on a crisp winter day…Crystal clear droplets forming on the tips of sparkling icicles…And a chickadee swooping in for a drink!

It’s the unexpected things…Those delightful little surprises that remind us of all that God has already done, and all that He has yet to do…


“…For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

(Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)


Those beautiful illustrations of careful provision, in which a tiny song-bird is designed with freeze-proof feet, so that he can weather winter storms…And when the sun comes out, he can perch upon the sparkling icicles to sip from the purest meltwater! This water is so refreshing that after each drink, the little chickadee licks his beak, as though reminding me to take a moment and give thanks to God for being so very, very good!


Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His loving devotion endures forever.

(1 Chronicles 16:34, BSB)


Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again…”

(John 4:13-14, ESV)


And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment...”

(Revelation 21:6, ESV)
