I was in the library doing some studying and to take a break I was glacing through an old Ebony magazine and came across the story of a successful pastor whose older sister committed suicide, she had mental health issues. He said it shook his faith to the core but he realised he had to drink from a “deeper well” to recover. This pastor had to dig deeper in his faith in God to continue to drink living water to cope with this tragedy.

I have had to dig deeper in the wells of my bible, pray and worship to cope with many painful situations. The wells of God’s word never run dry. The things of God never run dry, the river is always running but we have to position ourselves to drink.

When I suffered personal pain and loss, I shut myself away and dug deeper. As I poured out to Father God in prayer, tears and worship I experienced the river of his love wash over me and through me.

Is there anything that you are experiencing that is forcing you to drink from a deeper well. Dear Heart do not run from the well but run to it because there you will find the water of life that will quench your thirst.

Jesus told the woman at the well that the water I will give will cause you not to thirst again, it was a living water that ministered to the soul. When we are thirsty and need a drink, identify good quality water because there are many polluted sources. When you are well identify your good sources so that when you hurt you know where to go.

Dear heart, keep drinking that living water and when life throws things at you and that well dries up, don’t stop but dig another well.
