TODAY’S WORDS ARE TO: TAKE HEART!

Yes friends it just that clear, take heart. In big caps, in enunciated syllables if you will! In an exaggerated dialect, take heart!  Meaning don’t worry, don’t fret, don’t be intimidated, don’t be afraid! As Bishop Brooner would say, “Don’t be afraid, afraid of false evidence appearing real!”  That’s what fear is.  My God it’s good to know that we can take comfort-own the security that God’s steering our lives, God’s vessel-us, my life, and your life! He cares for what concerns us. This was made so clear this morning as I sat myself at my desk and prepared for another work day. At the click of a mouse here‘s what was once again revealed during a devotional moment on: Blueletterbible.com:

Today’s Promise from the Bible

John 4:14

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Reflection

Take heart in the evident promise of your salvation: that always and forever shall your soul be filled to overflowing with abundant and eternal life! Never shall you thirst. Never shall you dry up. Never shall your soul be parched. Rather take joy in this: unto everlasting shall your heart’s thirst be quenched as rivers of God’s living water pour down from heaven as you bask in the glory of God’s own Son: Christ Jesus.

The sentiment of today’s devotional  lines up so beautifully with my post written during Lenten season: MEET YOU AT THE WELL: HAVING A HEART-TO-HEART WITH JESUS!   shared on my blog: Celebrating Ordinary Days With Extraordinary Promises.  After reading this post we can breathe easy. We are well assured!

 Let’s exhale! God is our very breathe! That’s all the reason to praise the Lord!

Let’s prepare for the day ahead and sing about God’s glory with Mary Alessi and her anointed friends,  We Thirst For You.  Come on, come on and be ushered into praise and worship. Listening and participating in this awesome praise and worship you can’t help but to react and bask in the glow! The Holy Spirit is speaking. Let the chills run down your spine, the hairs stand up on your arms as your soul relishes that all the hustle and bustle does not negate that our real search is a soul-a heart awakening experience.  Why? Because we thirst for Him-more of Him! Jehovah, Friend, Father, Teacher, Lord, Shepard, Mother, Savior, Jesus Christ, Adoni Messiah!  Blessings to you today on this refreshing, restorative morning!

 May Alessi & Friends singing: We Thirst For You

WHOEVER DRINKS THE WATER



“But whoever drinks the water that I will give him will never become thirsty again.

The water that I will give him will become a well of water for him, springing up to eternal life.”
NISV John 4:14




What an amazing gift to receive, nothing in a box to tinker with, no instructions to decode, misplace and then locate in our clutter baskets and kitchen cabinet drawers! Not a gift to dust, or safely secure so that it isn’t tampered with or like a fine piece of porcelain displayed in our bellowed china cabinets, but instead a gift of empowered life! Oh my friends this wonderful gift alters the course of our life and beckons us to stop what we are doing, to abandon our entangled lifestyles. These words Jesus spoke induct us! It’s a pronouncement of relief and serenity for a provision of eternal life.


Yes my friends that’s what this living is all about, this reflective Lenten season ushers us into the remembrance of some very promising words! Jesus spoke to a woman hiding out from her potential, stuck in dead-end and defeated relationships that smothered and hurt but to now instead embrace new possibilities of hope. Her encounter with Jesus was the hallmark for her experiencing eternal life not a temporal existence but on a permanent basis!


Friends let me encourage you to meet God at your personal wells, your places of trials, discomforts and ambivalences.


Trust that He already knows all about what concerns you. Let humility erect your truth with your words, underneath your words. Yes, He’s a prayer away, alive in the scriptures and in the language of love! Go on let Jesus show you yourself, but more importantly build a bridge to our all wise, all loving all, all knowing Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ! See you at the well!
