Morning Praise: Drawn by a Parched Soul

I am parched, beaten down by the scorching heat of life; dried out, craving relief from the oppressive inferno of barbs from others. In this moment I hear your word dear Lord: “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink (John 7:37, NIV).” Praise God that you don’t just offer a shot of water, mere drops to wet the palette. Praise to you Jesus that you offer to immerse us in a river of living water to heal our thirst. Praise God that you fill us to the point of overflowing. All we need is to believe it is so, that only Jesus can quench our parched souls; that Jesus can can fill us so we never thirst again; that Jesus fills us to the point of overflowing. All praise to you dear Jesus for giving us eternal life, for filling us with the Spirit of God.

“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” – John 7:38

  1. Amen! May we bless the Lord for quenching our thrist through His Son’s sacrifice on that bloody cross. Our sins are washed white when we accept Jesus as our Savior and Lord.

  2. Fill my cup, Lord.
    I’m resting in the visual you offered of not only a shot or drops, but that He immerses us in His Living Water.
