Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life. John 4:14 NIV
Weary? Me too.
It seems the more we get to do, the more there is to do. And I get sideways on what is important, what can wait, and what simply has no significance in the kingdom.
When Jesus met the Samaritan at the well, He knew she was much the same. She was doing the same old, same old, not enjoying it, and sensing there was something more.
If we scale our days around eternity, they shape something holy instead of hurried. I am ready to trade and give up going to the well a dozen times with my list for that one time with my Lord. I am ready to fill up with Him in exchange for the world that empties me of my peace. He is crazy good at simplifying.
I have mastered multitasking. My race needs to see Heaven in the distance. My pace needs to be full of passion. My attitude needs to reflect what He is instead of what I am not. My end game should be less of me and a whole lot more of God. He promises to carry the heaviest load, and His grace shines in the deepest water.
Don’t be weary. Be filled with hope.
