Good lead in with a literal story before going into more symbolic applications...but the ending was the best. Made me think about all the "rivers" (strongholds) I have crossed and have yet to cross. :-)

I liked your analogies. Good job.

I agree - lovely analogies.

Well done.

Beautifully crafted, moving from the literal to the figurative seamlessly.

This made me smile, if only because at least two of your rivers are ones I have (or really need to!) cross! I could so relate to this. Great job of working your message into the story!

Assuming this story is true ... I'll pray that as you cross this river, you'll find the Lord's presence more real with you than ever before! God bless!

I really enjoyed this. If we keep our eyes on Jesus, we can "cross every river". Well done!

This is hopeful! It would be great if you tightened it up and submitted it for a devotional. Swimming across my own river right now (praise God, I'm not sinking) I was really encouraged.
