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?

"My Favrit Book . . . "

I just had to post this! My 6 year old, 1st grader, had to write (in public school) about his favorite book. The above pictures are what he wrote! You go son!! :)

Here is what it says:

"My favrit book is the Bible. It tells abot holy stuf. It has a old tesment and a new testment. It shows a part of a glob(e) at the back of the book. This book is holy."

Who says you can't talk about God or the Bible in school?! :)

And he sure is right . . . it IS holy and it DOES talk about holy stuff! :)

Oh - the word "David" and the arrow is pointing to the arm of the person holding the Bible. I asked him why it says David. "That's the only person in the Bible I could think of." Hmmm . . . what about Jesus?? :) Guess we need to be reading the Bible a bit more. :) Though - out of many of the other people in the Bible - I do love David! He was such a screw-up . . . but yet God said he was a man after His own heart! Why? Because he was always going back to God and seeking forgiveness and then praising the Lord for what He did in his life!!

Why don't you get out your Bible today too and read a few of the awesome stories (holy stuff) to your kids (or just to yourself) today! Ask God what He wants you to learn from it today? The Bible really is full of great information on how to live a better, more peaceful, joyful life full of love. . . . .IF we do what it says (and not just read it). :) I challenge you to do that today!

Enjoy God's "Holy" words!

Dig deep in His Word today!
