Life Giving Water

While in Britain, my friends asked me what I love about where I live in Maine. I love the water! I love seeing it, splashing in it and I love all the smells that come with it.


Where I live I am very close to the ocean, to lakes and I can walk to the river running through our city. There is something extremely therapeutic about water.

While pregnant, it was drummed into me that I had to drink gallons of water, you cannot have enough it seems. I was advised to gulp down at least a liter in the morning, so that I was off to a good start.

Water is essential for life and so is it any wonder that Jesus used the illustration of water when talking about his Salvation.

John 4:14

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.

Without Jesus in our lives we have an unquenchable thirst. We strive to fill the hole that a Savior brings us. With him we find fulfillment and joy. We find peace. The water here on earth makes me happy, I am always glad of a family day to the beach. This is a good gift from Heaven, that illustrates a fraction of the excitement and joy of seeing our Savior in Heaven.
