Salmon

By Angel Diane


I woke up thinking about the life of Salmon fish and wondering how our lives compare to theirs. 

 

After living a predestined season in the big wide world of the ocean, salmon have a natural instinct that they need to return to where they came from. 

 

This causes them to endure a treacherous journey that few can survive. 

 

Upon arrival of their destination, they begin to instinctively lay their produce on their “threshing room” floor. 

 

As they salt and pepper the produce of all they have acquired, with one strong show of strength they veil their efforts and then leave the rest up to God. 

 

Days later, after their purpose has been fulfilled, they succumb to the natural progression of life, giving their body rest and allowing a well fought for inheritance to flow freely to the next generation.

 

Where do you find your self in that scenario today?

 

To me, the purpose of all of it seems to be that we should live our best God-given life and do all we can to leave a legacy that will birth and bless the next generation.

 

It could possibly be less treacherous for our children if our efforts have paved a way for them to come back to their creator at their appointed time.

 

 

”Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him,“

Hebrews 5:8-9 ESV
