Spring has finally arrived in my soul and my eyes have been opened to see new growth all around me - in the young and old alike. And it has been inspiring.
Blogs I've been reading are even growing. From authors daring to make a little change here and there to their blogs, to full blown remakes. Writing skills are improving and evolving, as the writers are finding their voice. It's like spring has sprung all around me.
After coming out of a seven-year drought, my soul is as thirsty as a new plant breaking through the hardened, cold, winter ground seeking delight from the early morning dew.
I'm thirsting for more and more intimacy with Jesus. I'm thirsting to be used as a vessel for other's growth. I'm thirsty for this little old blog of mine to make a difference in someone's life. I'm thirsty for The Living Water to flood my soul to the point of overflow - overflow in the extravagant Love (my One Word for this year) department.
Oh, water my soul, my LORD. As I soak in the water of Your Word, cause me, oh God, to be saturated to the point of overflow. Water my soul and cause me to be living water to those around me coming into their springtime. Better yet, cause me to be living water to those in a desert, wilderness season. Even if they can only swallow one drop at a time, let me be the bearer of that droplet. May extravagant Love flow as an unending river, supplying life-sustaining substance to those who thrist.I not only prayed this prayer for me, but for you as well.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
