The Water of Life

I have to take a moment to brag on my wonderful husband. Our lead pastor was out of town this weekend, so David brought us the Word and it was awesome! His sermon was about choosing Jesus and the "water of life" instead of continually going to the "wells of life" for temporary nourishment. It was an amazing sermon that really hit home for us.

It was laid on his heart by God a few weeks ago in a devotion. We both dealt with losing Emerson in different ways and David's was very much delayed. It was for good reason, though. He went into crisis management mode and took care of me for so long that he put off dealing with his emotions for a long while. Instead of turning to God like he would have in so many other situations, he filled his mind and time with things of this world,work, finances, friends, etc, aka "wells of life". These wells never nourished him and he continued to suffer. It wasn't until he returned to God's water of life that he began to heal. Do yourself a favor and take a moment to hear God speaking through him!
