Thirsty Lakes, Thirsty Souls & Springs of Living Water

The Lake is thirsty.
It has been thirsty for days.
Dry, brown, lifeless grass lines it banks.


Spring-fed and depending on rainfall
the water is so low the trash
which usually blows over to the other side
becomes mired in the mud  over here on the park side.



Signs of life are slowly disappearing
Reminding me of myself
When my soul is thirsty

It doesn’t take long for a lake to get dry.
It doesn’t take long for me either
Unlike the lake which waits for rain and is no longer thirsty
I can return to the Springs of Living Water


When my soul is thirsty
You lead me to the
Springs Of Living Water
Which never run dry.

Jeremian 7:17b …the Lord, the spring of living water.

Revelation 7:17
For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eye
