Pass me a drink of cold water. It is dusty here. Dry, desert land surrounds me. I want to be refreshed. To be filled with the living water that only comes from Christ. To dwell in the promise land. Freedom from this storm in life, the overwhelming schedule, and the onslaught of negative thoughts.
Where can one find this drink of water? That can eternally refresh our souls. We get it straight from the well that never runs dry. From Jesus, our Savior, and we each have access to this amazing well.
Straight from the very scriptures in the Holy Bible, do we get to learn and be refreshed. Dive in, ladies! Allow God's word to cleanse you, change you and quench that desperate thirst within you.
Devotions written by God fearing authors are another way to get inspired and challenged, let alone refreshed. I have several favorites on my night stand. "At the feet of Jesus" written by Joanna Weaver, "A Wife's 40-day Fasting and Prayer Journal" by author Kaylene Yoder and "Soul H2O" by Sherry Stahl.
Soul H2O is my new favorite this month. I do enjoy a good devotional. Now, nothing takes the place of truly reading, studying God's word itself. However, when you are on the go and looking for something to toss in your purse, Soul H2O is a great option. #SoulH2O
The devotional book is made up of 40 power packed devotionals that offer refreshment, H2O, for the soul. Having this on your nightstand or in your purse, is like someone passing you a drink of cold water on a hot desert day.
I enjoy the extra scriptures the author adds to the end of each devotional. She calls that section of her book, "Drawing from the Well". I love the analogy.
One of my favorite chapters in her book is devotion #31, Rainbows and Lightning. Sherry shares a little on the story of Jesus, while on the boat with His disciples. There was an angry storm, tossing the boat fiercly. Waves crashing in on them. And Jesus slept. That's right. He slept. The disciples were running around, stressed. And Jesus slept. The devotion is on peace. The peace that only Jesus can bring. Peace isn't a place, peace is a person. It's Jesus. He is our Prince of Peace.
What's on your nightstand? Do you have a favorite devotional or christian inspirational book? I'd love to hear about it.
