Sixty miles west of Seattle the Olympic Mountains get soaked with almost 17 feet of precipitation a year. About 10 miles from there at sea level the sun-drenched village of Sequim logs a mere 16 inches. After massive weather systems from the Pacific dump their dampness in the higher elevations, there’s little left for those who live in the “rain shadow.” But they can choose to travel from arid to fluid in no time.
Two thousand years ago God walked the dusty roads of today’s Israel. He told a woman who’d come to a well for water, “Those who drink this water (from the well) will get thirsty again, but those who drink the water that I will give them will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give them will become in them a spring which will provide them with life-giving water and give them eternal life.”
If your soul is parched and nothing seems to slake your spiritual thirst, it’s time to step out of the shadows of doubt and, by faith, tap into the Water of Life that never runs dry.
