Reflection for July


WATER OF LIFE

In this moment of quiet
I pause,
so that I can stop giving out
and have a chance to receive.

I move from complexity to simplicity,
from busyness to stillness.

I long for you, Lord.
I thank you
that you freely pour your healing Spirit into my heart,
not because of anything I have done,
but because, quite simply, I am here,
with all my weaknesses and wounds.

Cleanse me,
restore me,
and refresh me in the living water
of your unconquerable love.

'But those who drink the water that I shall give them
will never be thristy.
The water that I will give them will become in them a spring of water,
welling up to eternal life.'

Jesus in John 4:14
