But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:14
A spring of flowing water has many different streams…
and even a little pool.
All the water flowing from the spring comes from One Source.
The Lord invites all to come and He will give living water.
He doesn’t tell us from which kind of stream we will drink…
but He does promise to give water.
So whether a rushing flow …
or just small droplets…
each satisfies the need for each moment.
Thanksgiving can flow whether we are showered in the rushing water…
or a slow steady stream.
Thanksgiving builds up our faith…
deepens our trust in the One who says…come and drink …
Only He can quench the dry and thirsty soul.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6
And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. Rev.21:6
Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water,
so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.”John 4:13-14
