Shining Moments

Drink more water!

I’ve known the benefits of drinking water for years.

From time to time we stock up on water bottles

but then life will get busy

and I’ll simply forget

how essential

yes, essential it is

to drink

water.

Drinking water not only is important for a healthy body

it also works to keep us healthy.

Not coffee,

nor tea,

and especially not soft drinks.

Water.

So I have my water bottle beside me as I’m writing today

and my heart wanders back to those words

I memorized in Sunday School years ago.

“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him

shall never thirst; but the water I will give him will become

a well of water for him, springing up to eternal life.” John 4:14

Drinking from the springs of Living Water, we used to sing,

happy now am I

my soul is satisfied.

Yes, Jesus is the Living water

satisfying our deepest needs.

Nothing else will do.

No person

group

activity,

or thing

will meet those deep down needs.

This bottle of water beside me will do no good if it just sits there.

I must open the top

and drink.

In the same way I must take in,

receive the Way, Truth and the Life

Letting the wonders of His amazing Love flow within

The Savior now invites you to the waters free

Where thirsty spirits can be satisfied.’

“Come all you who are thirsty, come to the waters.” Isaiah 55:1

Drink deeply of Him, my friends.

Find your satisfaction in Him. Become alive and healthy.

Discover the peace of a life of resting in Him, walking with Him.

Water,

cool and refreshing,

that satisfies.
