drawing water

Father, again I THIRST for you
like the psalmist, deer on the run
who panted for streams of water
like the woman at the well, dried
up, life poured out and wasted.

Jesus, you offer living water
abundant and refreshing, pure
well-spring of new LIFE within;
fill me up and wash over me
with your actively loving Holy

Spirit; fill to overflowing that
I spill on others; I lift my empty
CUP to you for my daily drink
where you lead me beside such
crystal clear and quiet waters.

You are one, true living God,
fountain of life; my only source
of soulful deep abiding JOY in
your presence today, tomorrow;
like a river eternal forevermore!

    With my 84 year old sis just being told she has an aggressive cancer where she will not live until summer our family is walking in the shadow of death. We fear no evil and pray the God given chemo will defeat the cancer. I feel that rod and staff of comfort.

    I especially liked this part: ” fill to overflowing that
    I spill on others;”
