Shining Moments

Thirsty.

Hearts thirsty for love

and belonging.

Souls thirsty for forgiveness and redemption.

Minds thirsty for truth.

Bodies thirsty for water. Living water that satisfies our deepest need.

We live in a world that drains and exhausts all our energies.

Day after day the sun beats down.

With sweat trickling down our faces we push on and on.

One more day

another project

more challenges to face. Relationship issues to resolve.

Thirsty for rest.

Oh, so very thirsty.

And the Master whispers to those who hear,

“Anyone who drinks the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.” (John 14:4)

My soul leaps at those words.

Never thirst.

Satisfied completely? Forever. Wonder of wonders. How can it be?

Living water. Deep down and running over.

Filling all those empty places with fresh, bubbling, pure water.

Drinking from the springs of living water.

Happy now am I

My soul is satisfied.

There is no place else where we will be satisfied completely.

No One else Who can meet our every need.

As I walk beneath the blooming dogwoods and admire their beauty,

my heart once more breaks forth into songs of thanksgiving.

Let’s tell the world of the One Who satisfies.

Sing His Song of greatness.

Sing His Song of love.

He’s great enough to know your deepest heartache

He’s kind enough to heal your wounds.

Shining Moments all around as we gaze upon His Face.

Not just at Easter but every day.

Living water he offers again to you and me. Joy overflowing.

Drink deep, my friends,

and keep drinking. Yes, keep on drinking.
