Spiritual Refreshment


spiritual refreshment


Spiritual refreshment. Does that sound appealing? Let's face it, life becomes dry at times, yet living water is ever available in God's presence and through the Word. When we become hungry or weak from lack of nourishment, God promises food which satisfies, spiritual refreshment for the soul.

This page serves as a gateway for the spiritual refreshment articles on this site. Most are written as meditations on Scripture. You'll gain the most from these by reading them alongside an open Bible. You may prefer to print them so that you can ponder them away from the computer as you pull away to meet with God.

As you seek refreshment, I encourage you to grasp hold of this promise:

"Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst--not ever. The water I give will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life." John 4:14 (The Message)

Prayer after John 1:34-51
Elizabeth de Smaele

Living Word, how often
do you try to speak to me,
poignantly,
with immediacy,
and yet I miss it,
caught up, as I am,
with lesser things?
My heart is poised now,
open,
listening,
as I proclaim
You are Messiah,
the King, my Lord.

Prayers to the Living Word

Quote of the Week
"Somebody was telling me this week that nobody can make a violin speak the last depths of human longing until that soul has been made tender by some great anguish. I do not say it is the only way to the heart of God..."
