Words From the Well!
A Hurting Word...
Sat on a bench at the mall one day, and I mall-watched! A parade of humanity streamed by--people of every feature, face, and fashion imaginable. Now my real preference is to "boardwalk-watch" by the ocean, but seeing I live in the midwest, I have a slight geography problem! I just don't let it spoil my fun, though, for I find it fascinating to watch people anywhere--people-lover that I am!
I know Someone else who is a people-lover--He even watches ME! In fact, today, on Mother's Day, He sits by the Well and watches us all...and He's not just seeing moms. He's seeing women of every feature, face, and fashion imaginable. Women displaying every facet of human emotion--joy and sorrow, love and loneliness, hurt and heaven--some are mothers, some are not, but each one is watched and loved by the Well-Watcher on this special day.
You see, the Well-Watcher knows that whatever our situation, we become drained of the resources we need for life. He understands too that some special days are not special to everyone. Unexpressed dreams, wishes, memories, and hurts? He know--and He cares. Exhausted bodies, worn spirits, weary souls? He knows--and He cares. Fragmented, funless families? He knows that too--and He cares! THAT'S why He's at the Well--not just to WATCH, but to MINISTER--to YOUR need today.
A Helping Word...or Two!He's a Love Giver!...He knows when the well of love runs low, or even dry. And He's there, just as real as He was for the woman at the well. Earthly loves, many of them, did not satisfy--she was still thirsty. And HE knew the answer--for far above the earthly loves of life, however wonderful, is a Heavenly Love who will never fool, fail, or forget. Are you thirsting for love today? See the Well-Watcher, with outstretched hand--He offers you the cup of love, REAL love--receive it, and you will never thirst again!
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV)."
He's a Joy Filler!...He knows when the well of joy runs low, or even dry. And He's there, just as real as He was for the woman at the well. She had sought happiness is a thousand earthly ways, and had come up empty. For happiness is not joy--happiness is outward; it depends on circumstances; joy is inward; it dwells in spite of circumstances! He is the answer for the joy you seek; a Heavenly Joy that lasts an eternity! Are you thirsting for joy today? See the Well-Watcher, with outstretched hand--He offers you the cup of joy, REAL joy--receive it, and you will never thirst again!
"These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full (John 15:11 KJV)."
He's a Peace Keeper!...He knows when the well of peace runs low, or even dry. And He's there, just as real as He was for the woman at the well. Peace was at a premium, no doubt, for her--turmoil was a part of her life, as she lived from marriage to marriage, from crisis to crisis. For peace cannot be found in earthly situations, however satisfying for the moment they may be. Peace comes from God's peace that the world cannot give--neither can it take away! Are you thirsting for peace today? See the Well-Watcher, with outstretched hand--He offers you the cup of peace, REAL peace--receive it, and you will never thirst again!
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee, because He trusteth in thee (Isaiah 26:3)."
Thirsty for love? joy? peace? Thirst no more--the wonderful Well-Watcher is here to meet your unique need--whether you're a mom or not; whether you're a woman or not; for He is the God of us all! And, by the way, if you ARE a man at the well today, you can learn alot by observing the Well-Watcher. See His high regard and respect for woman; note his tough character and yet his tender spirit; watch him listen with compassion and insight. Go and do thou likewise, and you will be loved, respected, and admired by the women in YOUR world!
And that's just a word--from the heart of a woman--to yours!

His Healing Word"Jesus answered, and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again; But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life (John 4:13,14 KJV)."
"Lord, fill my cup today--my inner being cries out for the love, joy, and peace that You alone can give. I receive your grace and the Water of YOUR Life this day. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
