I’ll tell you what, ladies and gentleman.

I’m going through a dry spell.

Words are few and far between. Thoughts are scattered and jumbled. And because we’ve been spending a lot of time in the house, focusing on us, and business, and future pursuits, I’ve been spending less time on God and in the Word.

As I sit here, screen before me, it hits me as it has so many times in the past:

When you don’t allow Him to pour in, you have nothing to pour out.

Like a sponge left out on the kitchen counter, I’ve become dry. Maybe you’re a little dry, too? There’s a remedy for both of us. A good soaking is the sure cure when you’re feeling a little parched.

Yeah, there’s nothing like a long pull of Living Water.


The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?”

Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

“But sir, you don’t have a rope or a bucket,” she said, “and this well is very deep. Where would you get this living water? And besides, do you think you’re greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us this well? How can you offer better water than he and his sons and his animals enjoyed?”

Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”

“Please, sir,” the woman said, “give me this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t have to come here to get water.” John 4:9-15 NLT
