Living Well

living well
Living Well, I thirst. My soul is arid. The unrelenting winds of hardship have left me parched. My mind wanders from one mirage to another until I remember that You quench my thirst.

Your Word becomes mercy drops to my brittle bones. Your voice is morning dew. A sense of Your presence is summer rain. Settle on me like a well-watered garden that Your reign might cause me to grow again.

Meditating on You causes a stream to run through my desert heart. I kneel and drink, that I might rise and follow. Replenish worthy desires in me. Amen.

O God, you are my God–for you I long! For you my body yearns; for you my soul thirsts, like a land parches, lifeless, and without water. Psalm 63:1

    I love these morning prayers & the beautiful photos with them. I would be so thrilled to have a perpetual calendar with them. Is there one available? Carole

    As a fellow “panic attack” sufferer your words are a refreshing encouragement. Praise the Lord I am winning this thing with the help of the Lord . . .

    Isaiah 58:11 AMPC
    11 And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.

    I love this! After I read this I saw you and your husband were sick.

    Praying you both get a good dose of His mercy drops to strengthen “your bones”. His rain/reign to settle on you both to make you whole! That you both are enabled to “rise” and continue to follow!
