It is normal in our troubled times; with all the bad news and dire predictions of the future, to feel under pressure. We strive to adapt to the unwelcome changes in our life, and fearfully face the prospect of our new normal. We are saddened at the dreadful state of many of the elderly, sick, and poor at home and abroad. Hearts cry at the terrible conditions our doctors, nurses and countless unsung heroes are daily facing. The Word of God teaches and assures even when we experience anxiety and stress and feel out of control; God is in control. We need to remember, as we follow Him and practice faith, trust, and prayer in Jesus’ name; He never fails to heal hurting hearts. He always gives the strength and ability to do whatever we are called to do. This poem calls us to Come to His life-giving waters.
Life Giving Waters
Flowing water is a welcome sight to see,
When the ground is parched and it moisture needs
Water brings abundance to the lifeless place.
New life will rise up from the dry place.
Flower’s spring forth; aroma fills the air.
Singing birds dwell in brush growing there.
Joy delivered from God…His goodness abounds,
When life-giving water touches dry ground
As this is, a soul is; when they are thirsting within,
Living Water makes new-life again.
The life of the thirsty man is made whole.
They are eternally thankful when brought to the river’s flow.
Springs of joy cause the blooms of praise and worship inside;
Peace fills the air where the Lord abides.
God’s love the redeemed again wish to share;
His beauty is yet to be compared.
Come to the water drink some more
Drink freely of the provision provided by the Lord
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
