There’s a well nearby. You’ve probably seen it. It’s in a dusty abandoned town. You wonder who used to live here and why they all left.

Many people have traveled by this well on their journeys through life, but either didn’t notice it, decided not to check it out, or tried it but left for some reason. It doesn’t appear that the well has been used in a long time. You are not even sure if the water is good. The top of the water looks unappetizing . . . . disgusting actually – covered in dust, dirt, germs, bugs and grime. Who would even want to use this well or drink its water? You dip your finger in to just taste it anyways as you realize how thirsty you are, but you only taste the stuff on top. Yuck. You’re not drinking that! But your thirst remains.

You decide to move on. . . . to find something more appealing . . . more appetizing . . . more eye-catching and tasty. You heard there was something better down the road. So you turn your back to the well and head off.

I urge you to come back.

Things are not always what they seem.

There is more to this well than the casual observer and wanderer will ever know.

Let me help you draw up the DEEP water from the well. That is where the best water resides – where the cooler, refreshing, life-giving water is. It is not tainted by the dirt, dust, germs or bugs on top of the water. Nothing has touched this deep water except the bucket and cisterns that are allowed to draw deep into it.

Are you that kind of cistern or vessel?

Are you ready to go deep?

The Day of the Lord is coming . . . are you ready?

In my quiet time with the Lord, the Lord asked me to write something down. I wasn't sure why He was having me write this down as I had no avenue to really share this - but just trusted God to show me the time and place in which to share it.

Be encouraged and be challenged! Go a little deeper today!

The day of the Lord is coming. He is coming with a vengence and with power. All those before Him will be forced to worship the one true King. Al those before Him will know who is King. But do not fear, those of you who are called His children - do not fear - because you are children of the King. He is your Father. The day of His return will be one of great joy for you! You will be united forever with your heavenly Father and Savior. What a glorious day it will be. But for those that do not know the Lord - who do not know Him as king, ruler of this world, savior and Father - that day will not be joyful. For on that day you will be forever separated from the love of God. You will realize and know that He is King and Lord - but it will be too late.

"Know that I am God - NOW! Do not wait! What are you waiting for? I have been calling your name since you were young - since you were in your mother's womb. Many of you have sensed it - but did not know it was Me. I am telling you today . . . it is ME! I am calling you - I am wanting you. I want you to know me, to love me, to know my love for you and to live with me for eternity. Do not doubt. Do not stray. Turn to me and I will be there. I will answer. I know that some of you have tried - but keep trying. I am not hard to find. I am all around you. I am with you everyday. Open your eyes and see. Open your ears and hear. Know that I am God and that I love you. I do not want you to be lost in the field when I come to harvest - I want you to be firmly planted - so that when I do harvest - you will be with the wheat and not the weeds that I toss into the fire. Plant yourself in me. Don't uproot. Stay planted. I know that it may seem like it is taking forever for harvest time to come - but stay planted. I will be harvesting soon. But you must remain in me."
