A Need for Water

living waterIt seems we go through a lot of water. You probably do too.

The thing is where we live, this can be an issue.

See every day we need to pump water into the well and then when the electric is on, we need to pump this water to the top of the roof. To fill our water tanks which then supply our house with water.

Thankfully, my hubby handles all of this,but we are realizing it is a big issue.

See, if you run out of water in the well, you then will have to buy water. So far this hasn’t been the case, but we aren’t sure if we will make it through the dry season.

But as my husband sat on the roof this morning, waiting for the tank to fill, he was reminded of how dependent we are for water. And how often we take it for granted.

In your home and mine, we need water to drink, to wash dishes, to wash clothes, to flush toilets, to take baths and showers. It is essential!

Many around the world still have to take bucket and cisterns to the well in order to get the water they need for the day. (How thankful I am that this is not where we live).

But water is important. It can’t be taken for granted.

Yet, how much more is the LIVING WATER more important to our daily lives.

And how often do we just take Him for granted.

Just as we need water to run our homes, to do our daily chores and to just live.

We need Jesus, the Living Water way more.

When we are dry and weary. When we have lost hope and are discouraged.

When life is good and filled with joy.

No matter the situation, it is the Living Water that we need.

How easy it is to push-off this need. How easy to think we can do it on our own.

Yet, in the end we will be left parched, wilted, tired, and worn.

We must have Jesus.

In the morning when I rise, In the morning when I rise, In the morning when I rise…. GIVE ME JESUS!”

He is our source, He is our strength, He is our peace, our hope.

Jesus is everything we aren’t. Yet, all that we need!

 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,  but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

John 4:13-14
