I often think of a desert, hot and dry.  In the distance is a stream of fresh water.  You can smell it, hear it.  Maybe you can see it.  It will not only be refreshing, but life saving!  Would you, could you, ignore it?  Can you walk the other way?  I don’t think so.  But yet, that is what I see people doing, on another scale.

Jesus, IS that living water.  Life saving like the stream, and yes, refreshing.  Run to Him.  He will give you peace, even in the deserts.  Wisdom, if you ask.  Calm in the storms.  Wealth, yet in poverty.  Love!  Why do people walk the other way.  For us, life with Him is even more fun, blessed, awesome.  The emptiness worldly people seem to be trying to fill, is really a need for our God.

Proverbs 3:13-18 says “Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.  She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.  Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.  Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.  She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.”

Be Blessed!
