"Refreshing Water"

Water is so important. It comes as a gentle rain. It comes as a raging flood. We need water to drink so we can live. Plants need water so they can survive and provide the oxygen we need. Water is so important.

Have you thought about the similarities between God's love and water?

Sometimes God's love is like a gentle rain that warms us. Sometimes, in the midst of trials, it is a raging flood that keeps us safe even as we are tossed. Without God's love, we would be dead spiritually. We need to have His love providing His warming presence, giving His grace and strength and offering eternal salvation and life.

Feel blessed as you drink fresh water today. It is a blessing some do not have.

Feel blessed as you experience God's love through the circumstances of your day. He is, after all, the One who provides "living water" (John 4:10). And "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water" (John 7:38). Feel free to share it with those around you.

God is love.
