Jesus said ” let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me….rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

John 7: 37-39 NIVUK

A gentle whisper
Or a gushing roar
The voice of God carries
From source to shore.

Clear and cascading
pure and fresh
Cleansing and renewing
The Saviour’s breath.

Making a way
Where none can be seen
The life of the Spirit
Moving within.

Bringing life and growth
To all in its wake
Flowing with love
Mercy and grace.

Gracious God, as we spend time with You today, we picture ourselves by a flowing river or stream…. As we breathe in, we think of the renewing breath and love of the Holy Spirit flowing through our bodies – through our hearts, our lungs, our veins and our minds ….. Loving God, we breath in the peace of Your presence…..

Life-giving God, as we take a clear, cool glass of water when we are feeling physically parched, may we come to You each day to drink of the refreshing, life-giving waters of Your Holy Spirit.  As we spend time with You, may Your love quench our thirst and overflow through us to others as we live, work and serve in Jesus name. Amen.
