When I thought life's thirsts too great for quenching,
The yearnings of a soul, too strong to still,
I saw the Living Waters flowing freely;
And drinking deeply, knew my being's fill.
Before the Throne of God I found fulfillment!
For in that flow of Heaven's joy divine,
I knew the rich infilling of the Spirit,
And claimed that Holy effluence as mine.
Within my soul, now springs a stream eternal,
Which stems from God the Son, Who dwells above;
My thirst, assuaged forever at that fountain,
Has found the potion sweet of Jesus' love!

Jesus said, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drinks. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."
My dear friends in Christ, the Lord's heart is open to you today. His ears hear your thirsty cries, and His eyes behold your longing for living water. He will fill your life to overflowing with His love and give you unspeakable joy, which is the Lord's effervescent river of life. As He gave this living water to the Samaritan woman and breathed on His disciples, so He gives His Holy Spirit to all believers. He is your comforter. He is your counselor. He is your conscience. And He is an unending fountain of love, hope, and faith in your life. Many blessings to you this weekend as you go in the grace of God and the love of His Holy Spirit.
