Springs Of Living Water // The Weekend Brew

When you find yourself walking through a valley,
remember that the path you take is temporary.
He promises to bring you through the valley.

If you look closely at the rock and dirt beneath
you will see pools of water rising up
beneath the barren ground.
These pools are meant for healing.

When you feel dry and parched,
remember that all who are thirsty,
all who are weak
need only come to the fountain.

[Tweet “All who are thirsty and weak need only come to the fountain.”]

If you look closely across the valley
and behold the One who stands before you,
you will see Living Water begin to rise up.
It has come to fill the empty places.
It has come to bring refreshing.

May your barrenness be filled with life,
May your valley season be filled with hope,
May your empty places be filled with Living Water.

    Beautiful post. It reminded me of this verse I read in Psalm 145 yesterday >”The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does.” (verse 13, NLT). And yes, when He opens His hand, He satisfies every hunger & thirst. So grateful He fills us with life, hope, and Living Water. Have a blessed weekend!
