Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise

My Great Grandmother says this all the time. It's become sort of her catch phrase, and while we can all understand what it means, she herself doesn't know where it came from, her mother used to say it. We're old Virginians, I don't know if this is regional, but it has puzzled me for years. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
