Refresh

DSC07179

But, this morning, today,
I’d ask that you refresh your mindset
Remind yourself of this:
That Jesus Christ wills for your good,
Your well-being,
He desires a beloved wholeness for you,
His friend.

Otherwise it’s too easy
For your mind
To be sucked into different places
Where you face the future with
Fear and apprehension,
I know, I know,
Trust me, my mind goes there, too.

And that’s why it’s important
To step back
And re-orientate
In the arms of someone who would do anything
For the child He loves.

And so, remember this, again:
He loves you
–plans beautiful plans for you
–wants to see you in healthy places
–desires to pour grace on challenging situations
–yearns to give you abundant life.

Life-giving Water is his
Self-appointed term.
Come, we thirsty,
Drink and be
Refreshed.
