Drawing from the Well

"But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:14

What a wonderful thing to have is our well-spring that we can draw upon again and again. I think if we counted the times during the day that we dipped into it, we would be surprised, since it is not really a thing we count....

We think of times well-spent and our memory bank is always adding up as the new slide in with the old and they all become part of who we are.....the good ones tend to override the unpleasant ones with enough time and healing.

But if I lost every scrap of my memory today........God would keep me, I know that. For He has hid His Word deep in my heart...... I would have the wellspring of His water that never runs out to draw from. I have Very God living in me which will carry me into eternity, along with all that is me......

was me, and will be me.

Everything I am is kept safe in Him, for He has promised that, so there is nothing to fear, not Alzheimer's.....or cancer....or old age, or anything else........"and we have a priceless inheritance--an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay." 1 Peter 1:4

I really don't know how it would be to lose my memory, my with someone with Alzheimer's has made me ask that question. It must be terrifying, I really can't imagine it. I hope I never have to find out. But one thing I know.

When I have the water that always quenches, it will be more than enough.

thankful for feeling better today, almost over my cold......thankful for two specific things that happened yesterday, one the direct result of prayer.....thankful for days off to re-energize......for God who never gives up on me, even when He sees my inside my heart, it still doesn't faze Him.....wonderful memories of a great Birthday week.....appliances that keep right on going through the stifling heat of first cuppa joe in the morning.....people who speak wisdom into my life....the memory of sand in my toes.....and being splashed my precious niece.....#701-711

  1. I think this is why memory verses are so important. When we can remember nothing else, we can lean back on words that were long ago imprinted on our conscience.

  2. Yes, absolutely. My cure for insomnia is to memorize the 23rd Psalm. Most of the time it works. I need to work on memorizing so much more! Lori

  3. Memory is a precious thing --- only God could create it.
