Jesus says,”If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.”That is quite a promise. Out of our belly shall flow rivers of living water. He fills us to overflowing and the overflow spills out and gives others a drink of that precious water. I think of a precious song that we love to sing. “I’ve got a river of life flowing out of me. Makes the lame to walk and the blind to see. Opens prison doors, sets the captives free.” There is so much we can do with this river that we have. However as I studied psalm 23:2, “He leadeth me beside still waters”. It became clear to me that sheep are afraid of fast moving waters and will not drink there. The shepherd has to dam a spot to still the flow so they will drink. Sometimes I think as Christians we can let our water bubble over a little too fast and in turn, we can scare unsaved sheep. Someone standing on the corner yelling Jesus saves is well intended but may be scaring sheep. Or the person with Jesus stickers covering their entire car can startle sheep. We all can get so excited about the life we have found that we scare those thirsty sheep, so still that living water a little and let the Lord show you how to give them a drink. We don’t want to scare those unsaved sheep with our torrents of excitement and desire. Let the Lord lead and you will be able to share all that the Lord has given you. A Shepherd looks at Psalm 23 by Philip Keller is a wonderful book about the sheep and how the Shepherd cares for them.
My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
