living water

they drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; and You give them to drink of the river of Your delights. for with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light. psalm 36:8-9

blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand
in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. but his delight is in
the law of the Lord, and on His law He meditates day and night. he is like
a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose
leaf does not wither. whatever he does prospers. not so are the
wicked! they are like chaff that the wind blows away. therefore the
wicked will not stand in the judgement, nor sinners in the assembly of the
righteous. for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way
of the wicked will perish.
psalm 1

i desire You Lord. i thirst for you like the deer thirsts for the fresh water. may my roots go deep, like a tree planted by the waters - Your living waters of life where i will never thirst again for anything but You. You satisfy me. You complete me. You are my delight and my source of true life. may i be forever ruined for any counterfeit of You.

may my roots go down deep that i would not be moved by the seasons of life. You said that storms will come and the winds will blow, but give me deep roots that i would not be moved. may i be anchored in the fountain of all life.

Jesus you said,
if you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you
would have asked Him and He would have given you living water... everyone who drinks this water I give him will never thirst. indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
john 4:10, 13-14

and your promises are true! i drink again today from your rivers of delight. i love You Lord. may we encounter You.
