It has been HOT here lately. Yesterday was busy busy, and I forgot to water my pansies in the morning as is my usual habit. By 3 o’clock my poor pansies were wilted in the afternoon heat. I immediately got some cool water and gave them all a deep drink. Shortly after, they had recovered, even though the heat had not lessened.
Our dear Father often uses these little pictures from my daily life to impress His truth on me. This morning it was my pansies, LOL. When the heat increases, as it does in my life when stress, pressure, busy-ness, tests, or trials increase, I need more living water from the Lord’s deep well, not less. My husband needs more water of appreciation from me when he is having it tough, not less. My children need more water of calmness and patience from me when they are struggling, not less.
My grandson’s name is derived from the Greek “John”, which means, “Jehovah is a gracious giver.” Yes, He is. His living water is available to all, without limit, without measure, and without cost. Is the heat on? Come and drink deep.
