All you need is water

Here in this worn and weary land, where many dreams have died.

But like a tree planted by the water, we never will run dry.

So living water flowing through, God we thirst for more of you.

Fill our hearts and flood our souls with one desire:

Just to know you and to make you known we lift your name on high.

Shine like the sun make darkness run and hide.

We know we were made for so much more that ordinary life.

It’s time for us to more than just survive.

We were made to thrive.

 

 

These words are from one of my favourite music albums, “Thrive” by Casting Crowns.They remind me of the Christian’s journey. With this, I say HeirWalk 12 is out!

This issue of HeirWalk is tagged Revive! In the process of pilgrimage through this uncharted territory [life],and while fulfilling the dream God places in our heart, we are often fazed by challenges that make vigour run cold.

A loss of a loved one, a very busy phase of life, a disturbing weakness, a strained relationship, or a waning communion – these things and more threaten to rob us of the joy of our relationship Jesus. They tend to trip us up and beset us.

When we are burned out, it is good to always remember to REVIVE. When you feel cut down, remember that as long as your roots are deep in Christ [in Him we live, move and have our being], all you need is water!

Take time out to be still and renew your mind; soak up strength from His word – which is living water that cleanses and refreshes you. What keeps you going on this heir walk is continual dependence upon the Lord [faith] and consistent communion with Him [devotion].

If you feel your muscles are sagged, your strength is waned, just cry, “revive me O Lord!

For a tree there is always hope. Chop it down and it still has a chance– its roots can put out fresh sprouts.  Even if its roots are old and gnarled, its stump long dormant, at the first whiff of water it comes to life, buds and grows like a sapling.

Job 14:7-9 [MSG]
