Water to Our Souls

For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children.
Isaiah 44:3
We all are aware what happens to a flower when it is not watered. The once beautiful plant withers away to a remnant of its former glory. Dry, brown, and crisp.

Just as a flower weakens without water, so does the heart without regular readings of the Bible.

I am so guilty of not consistently being in the Scripture. I attend Church and multiple Bible studies. Nonetheless, personal daily time in the Word is essential. 

The Bible is water for our souls.

Yes, we may hear passages read from our Pastors or other leaders, however we must study it ourselves. It helps our hearts to grow and thrive. We will become scholars of the Word, able to defend and understand it. Every time you examine the Scriptures you learn something new, or relearn a subject, or find blessings and encouragement. We become more in tuned with our Heavenly Savior.
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 
John 4:14
Water to our souls, bread of our lives, the Scripture nurtures us.

Pray to the Lord for help becoming a disciplined reader of His Word. Pray for attentiveness, dedication, and understanding.
Reading the Bible—
I love the Word of God!
Reading the Bible—
I love the Word of God!
It’s my food, my drink, and my life supply;
I love to eat it every day and night.
I just turn and open up to Him,
And the rivers flow right in.
