Word Filled Wednesday ~ Living Water

It's Word Filled Wednesday and I'm linking up with Internet Cafe Devotions

This photo was taken by Richard Doyle, my friend Tina's stepfather.  I'm truly amazed at his talent for photography and his willingness to allow me to share.

Living in the desert of Arizona, I know what it's like to be thirsty.  I keep a water bottle handy at all times to quench my thirst. 

But Jesus was speaking with the Samaritan woman at the well about a different kind of thirst. 

Only Jesus could provide this kind of water.

How thankful I am for this living water.  It's amazing that He provides this free gift to all who receive Him.  His Holy Spirit resides within each believer.

  1. Hi Debbie,
    The picture you posted is incredibly beautiful.

    Like you I know what it is to be thirsty. In my kitchen cupboard I have a collection of water bottles...because in our country we carry water bottles wherever we go...for an easy way to hydrate ourselves. I also carry a small atomizer with "energized" water -- it is easy to spray my face with this water, an instant refreshment to my body soul and spirit!

    Yes, if you know me, you will know how attracted I am to water.

    So I do thank you for this post today. So brief, but so telling.

    I like the way that you can express yourself so well in just a few lines.

    You are one blog friend I have come to appreciate these past weeks.

    Keep close to the water this summer, Debbie!

    Love

  4. Good Morning Debbie Sweetie...
    A beautiful post this morning.

    Yes God is so good to us. He does NOT allow us to go thirsty. He always has enough water to quench our thirst, if we but only ask it of him.

    Thank you for sharing with me sweetie. Have a beautiful day.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

  16. I had a busy day yesterday and couldn't sleep all that well. I got up about 2:30 AM, with a headache and a powerful thirst. I went downstairs, sat in the recliner, thinking I would feel better. Then my legs started to cramp. I needed water! Just as our bodies tell us that our physical bodies need drink, sometimes our spirits are telling us that we need a drink from the springs of Living Water.

  18. Hi Debbie...this is beautiful! I'm reminded of how the woman at the well said, "But Sir, Thou hast nothing to draw with. This well is deep." I'm not only feeling "deep" but like I'm running on empty...a dry well indeed. Thankfully He does not come to get anything OUT OF US.. but to put something IN US--His Living Water, His Holy Spirit. Once we are filled with His Holy Spirit, others may draw from us and taste the goodness of our Lord. Keep lifting Him up, Debbie-- because He says, "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me."
    That's our prayer, Father! Draw all men unto You, as you Fill Us UP with Your Holy Spirit each day.

  19. How absolutely beautiful is that photo and even more the fact that JESUS is our Living Water. We never have to go dry but if/when we do we can quickly replenish from the One who causes us NEVER to thirst -- JESUS!

    Beautiful message!

    Love you lots!
