RainWater – A refreshing drink of the Spirit!

Let this poem the LORD inspired in me almost a decade ago wash over and refresh you!

Jesus answered her, If you had only known and had recognized God’s gift and Who this is that is saying to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him [instead] and He would have given you living water.

 

Water is a Living Thing   by Tonja K. Taylor, 2009

Water is a living thing

A necessary brook or spring

To cleanse, to nourish

to bring new life.

Ever moving, ever giving

All its fountains lithe and living

Smooth as glass or capped with white

All are drawn to its refreshing sight

Peaceful as a zephyr breeze

Bringing souls to bended knees

To pray when raging in the storm

Sculpting mountains into form

Cleansing beaches, changing lands

Washing humanity’s hands

Thrilling seekers with a fountain

Drop by drop, eroding mountain

Nourishing a dying man

Oasis in a sun-scorched land              

Habitat of many creatures

Full of ever-changing features

Warring wells; muddied by strife 

 Symbol of a brand new life

Cleansing wounds made from strife

Flowing free to wash and give

New strength for weak ones now to live.

 

Water is a living thing

An ever flowing mountain stream

That represents the Holy One

JESUS–Water of Life, the Son

  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing
    my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or hints? Kudos!

    1. I clear my mind by worshiping the true and living God, Jesus Christ. I read His Word often. He is my life. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you, and He will. he will give you HIS mind–the Mind of Christ, which is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit!
