Dry Riverbed

I am thirsty for Life giving Water
And I came to drink from the Well
I know the Hand that lifts the cup
Not from a stream, brook or pail

None other will ever taste so sweet
Or satisfy this longing deep inside
O Sweet Holy Spirit , Jesus my Lord
I am parched and lonely ,your bride

Righteousness calls for a different gale
Storm clouds of unease and unrest
Raining conviction from a raging sky
making believers again and not guests

Pour steadily on this empty desert trough
Harsh bitterness, the taste of unbelief
Dry riverbeds starve for rain of rebirth
Water from Thine Own hand, is our relief !

You did justice to the phrase quenching one's thirst. Your words speak the truth and are a reminder of who can quench my thirst.

Let the floods fill my own dry river bed. Judy, you have written a wonderful poem. It touched me deeply.

Hi Judy...thanks for this great reminder that we all need this living water...Great thoughts...keep on writing. God bless you and your family. Amen.
Verna Mull  16 Jun 2010
Dear Judy, I really loved the name of your poem, and the poem also, but I think we all go through times of Dry Riverbed's! AND, that is the best description, I think. Hey, how about a song about that subject? Sounds like a attention-getter to me.
Lynn Wallace 15 Jun 2010
We all need to thirst far more for this living water. I love the way you expressed it in your poem, "Dry Riverbed."
Lyn Churchyard 15 Jun 2010
Heartfelt poem, Judy. I find the final line Water from Thine Own hand, is our relief! especially meaningful. Bless you.
Charles Darby 15 Jun 2010
Amen! We need another out pouring of Holy Spirit.May it happen and start revivals all over this land.
Connie Allen 15 Jun 2010
Very good poem,Judy and timely. Oh how we need the River of his Holy Spirit on the body of Christ. I just finished listening for the upteenth time the song "How we need the River" by Terry MacAlmon...then I read your poem...very timely and I believe spirit inspired. Thank you for voicing on paper how many 'feel'. GOD BLESS YOU
