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 Bible Bill


The Bible bill? - Yahoo! News
Source: news.yahoo.com
When the clock strikes midnight on Dec. 31, 2009, Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) hopes you’ll be ringing in “the Year of the Bible.”

This article just makes me want to cry! I am grieving over our country today! Christianity on the decline? Atheism on the rise? . . . and we want to focus on healthcare issues instead of what's really important?? What's wrong with people?? Especially those that call themselves Christians??

Our lawmakers and leaders (including some "Christians") want to focus on the "blooms" and "flowers" that are dying - trying to keep them alive - but what they really need to focus on is the "roots" of the plant/tree. If the roots are unhealthy - then it doesn't matter how much you tend to the flowers - they will die!

I am proud of Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) for trying to get our country to focus back on it's roots! This country needs to go back to is "roots" - God and the Bible - and go back to ruling and running this country based on God's principles as it used to! That is how we will see true change!

2 Chronicles 7:14 - "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Come back to God, AMERICA . . . come back to God, Christians!! - and He will heal our land!! Wouldn't that be awesome?!

I encourage you to let your Rep's know that you support this resolution and encourage them to do the same. It may seem trival . . . but it's not! God loves to use the simple to confound the wise!

Psalm 19:7 -
The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.

Pray for our nation and it's leaders today!! Pray for the church to wake up and go back to it's roots as well . . . God, the Bible, and all that God promises (and commands) us!
