God’s love flows like an eternal spring.
In the Bible story of the Samaritan woman, she asked Jesus to give her the water that would quench her thirst forever. Like her, I may have gone to the well of worldly comfort, filling a bucket again and again as I tried to satisfy myself. Over time, I learned this only left me wanting more. Today I fill myself with the love of God—my wellspring of joy—for lasting satisfaction. At times, I may relapse into seeking fulfillment from outer circumstances or possessions. I know then to turn within. I nurture myself through prayer, meditation, or talking with a loving friend. I shift my attention to my desire to know God. Spirit in me flows like an eternal spring. My thirst is quenched and I am free.
Give me this water, so that I may never be thirsty.—John 4:15
