I asked her why she started drinking.
.
.
“She looked up at me and told me that she just wanted to be happy. She was drinking for the temporary euphoria related to intoxication. That was happiness for her. It’s the only way she knew how to get it. I got to spend the rest of the trip telling her about the only one who could answer the deepest cry of her heart.
.
.
When I sat down to write today I asked the Lord what He wanted me to write. He showed me that we all go to a well to try and draw out our value and worth.
.
If the well is Him then we drink and are never thirsty again. But if the well belongs to the world then we need to continually return because the water only offers a temporary relief.
.
We were not created to draw our sense of value from anything in this world. We were created to have the deepest cry and need of our hearts (the need to be loved) answered by the perfect love of our perfect Father.
.
So the question is. . . what well are you running to? 🏃🏻‍♀️ Have you drunk from the well of Jesus and found yourself filled or is there an area of your life you haven’t been able to lay down because the associated temporary feelings are too important? Chances are it’s a little of both. The living water has filled this part of us but not this other part.
.
The lie is that we need that temporary bliss the world offers so readily. It validates us, makes us feel worthy and valuable. That’s why some things are so hard to give up. The lie is that if we give it up then we are giving up what makes us whole.
.
But the truth is that we can give it up and gain! ✨🙌🏻 We gain because we are no longer drinking destruction. We gain because our reality becomes centered in the truth that we’ve been accepted, valued and loved all along. We gain because we get to run into the arms of our Perfect Father and feel the warmth of His embrace. We gain because we walk out of darkness and into light.”

What well are you drinking from? .💭.

Here I am. Lost my passion for a minute. My creativity had been stifled. But life is too short to live without love & poetry 💜
