Thirst Quencher

“All these things I will give you if you will fall down and worship me.”

Unlike Christ who rejected when shown the kingdoms of the world, many of us tempted by the devil, have never come down from that exceedingly high mountain.

Our thirst for greatness in man’s eyes, has cause us to pitch a tent next to its fountain.

A spring issuing all of our heart’s desire and in ignorance we consume, unbeknownst that our indulgences will eventually become unquenchable.

The plan has always been to hurt, abuse, reject, then catch us slipping, hung-over, from a life consumed with dipping and sipping of that fountain.

When we choose to make this walk about us, we’re stuck opening doors and holding them open, chasing dreams to make the world notice when in reality significance and promotion comes from God.

We were purchased of God, bought with a price, created in His image, made a joint heir with Christ.

Don’t be fooled by that which never satisfies, creating a bigger hole, having you craving the next high.

Commit your ways to God, let Him cause them to prosper, sip from never-ending wells, become rivers of living of water.

I Don’t

RINGS

 
Singing: Do you know what today is, it’s our anniversary…
Praying: Thank you Lord for welcoming me back when I willfully chose to be disobedient. Oh Lord, this tangled web I’ve selfishly weaved, please come quickly and offer some ease…
Acknowledging: There is a price to pay for putting my hands to the plow and in the midst of frustration, confusion, temptation, and disillusion, to turn my back on You. For in those times it is imperative and advantageous to not run but to draw even closer…
Confessing: Every union God has NOT joined together so it should come as no surprise when it goes asunder. We’re often unapologetic and unashamed at the depths we’ll go to to get what we want and oftentimes will forsake our relationship with God to get it. No truer saying-what you compromise to get, you’ll have to compromise to keep…
Proclaiming: In my want, need, desperation, and uncertainty-I’ll trust you Lord! Let me not be wise in my own eyes or seek ungodly counsel. Teach me to wait on You, I trust YOU with my life…
