Spiritual Photo Challenge #1 by Debbie DeRienzo

Today I am excited to be able to start including from time to time some wonderful posts from my friend Debbie DeRienzo. We worked together on a church worship team probably ten years ago and have kept in touch by e-mail and more so of late by facebook. I know you will enjoy her series of Spiritual Photo Challenges.

AUGUST 1:
John 4:14  "but whoever drinks the 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."
Every day after my workouts I am so desperate for a drink of water.  I have worked up a sweat and lost so much water in my body that I am craving fluids.  My body NEEDS water so badly.  I pull out my water bottle and quench that thirst.  Sugary drinks will not satisfy, coffee will not work either.  I NEED water.
Spiritually, Jesus is the water that brings life to the soul. By drinking the living water we can live and never thirst again.  Just as the physical body needs water to continue living so does the spirit. Jesus is the water needed by the spiritual part of man. Without Him the soul will eventually die. The soul is thirsty and we try to quench that thirst with many things that satisfy for awhile, but eventually we get thirsty again. The only thing that can truly quench the thirst of the spirit is the living water, Jesus Christ.John 4:14 "but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.

Prayer: Lord help us to be able to realize that we are thirsty for you. Help us to stop trying to fill that need with everything else. We need you to be living water. Lord some are living in a spiritual desert be to them an oasis today. We remember to pray today for military families and ask your protection and your grace and loving care. Thank you for Debbie and her husband Mike for their support of military families we ask that you give them many opportunities to be your light as they continue to point people to know and love you Jesus.
