A Joyous Welcome
Thank you for stopping by today. It may be that you are returning or it may be your very first visit – I believe is no coincidence that you’re here – and, whichever it is – my prayer is that the words you find here will ENCOURAGE and INSPIRE you as you continue on your journey seeking JESUS – your Friend and mine.
Our Scripture always begins from the Book of Psalm and the Words of God therein –
Our Focus today is Psalm 1:3—
“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.”
My friend – I agree with all I’ve read that EVERYTHING needs water.
If you have plants, you know they won’t live if you don’t water them.
The same is true for the human body.
Just as the earth is two-thirds water and one-third dry land, our body is also two-thirds water!
When our body doesn’t have enough water, it gets dehydrated. Serious dehydration can lead to death. But, even low-grade dehydration can cause your energy level to drop, make you feel grumpy, and hinder your ability to concentrate.
We must also water our spirits – with God’s word.
Keep yourself – SPIRITUALLY – watered friend.
Do this by –
First, spending time EVERYDAY reading and studying His Word and being in His Presence.
Next, be sure to actually drink plenty of water.
Then, you will be well watered in every area of your life!
A scripture from the Book of Isaiah – Chapter 43:20 reminds me of how God saw water – it says —
“I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen.”
That is beautiful and it shows me how much God loves us and thinks about our well-being.
It is truly a blessing!
Lastly, I share with you from my own walk with the Lord that spending time in God’s presence – listening, studying His Word, praying for wisdom has enabled my FAITH in God to grow leaps and bounds. My TRUST in God is stronger than ever and I am thankful beyond words for this BLESSING!
Know too, that God does not treat one person better than another – He loves us all.
So, my friend – I point you to Psalm 115:11-13 —
“Trust in the Lord, all you that worship him. He helps you and protects you. The Lord remembers us… He will bless everyone who honors him, the great and the small alike.”
Let us end with a prayer —
God, thank you for YOU – our Living Water. Help us to always seek You and to spend time daily in Your Presence, studying Your Word – making choices that honor You. Please help us hear Your still small voice and reveal Yourself to us so that we can grow and know You better. In JESUS Name – we pray.
Thank You Lord!
Bless Your Holy Name!
