Living Water

From our earliest conception, water and life seem to go together. Our body itself is made up of mostly water and it is enveloped in our mother’s womb with water. After air in importance, it is a requirement for life. Our earliest communities were birthed by water, and without it, no life would survive.

In the spiritual realm, this is also true and my spirit rejoices to experience the blessings provided by the waters of God’s creation. Peace overwhelms my troubled soul in the presence of an ambling brook. There is excitement to be found in the surge of the roaring ocean as it crashes against the shore. Who among us hasn’t found rest on the banks of a quiet pond on a lazy, summer afternoon or been thrilled by plunging rapids? Consider the joyous freedom of the waterfall as it casts itself below. We stand in awe of such a scene.

In the morning mist I am cleansed, and through an afternoon shower I am washed! In torrential downpours the dross id flushed from life. Through our tears, our Heavenly Father keeps our pain in crystal bottles. In it’s various forms, His liquid love washes over His creation, freely flowing from His very throne. My spirit stains to hear His voice that has said of believers, ‘Out of their innermost being will flow rivers of living water. By this He meant the Spirit…”And then I remember: “Jesus answered, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.” John 3:5

I see some good thoughts here that could be betterc developed. Proof for spelling errors before submitting - is instead of id, and there's another but I can't see it at the moment. Blessings.

Oooops better! 'In it’s various' should be 'In its various' common error. My spirit stains - strains ? I think there are some great thoughts here that could be developed further! Blessings.

I like the way you are showing the connection between life and water. It's almost like a teaser for more that is to come. I think you can probably develop this into a very thought provoking or even teaching article. Your last paragraph is almost poetic. You could also consider creating a poem from these ideas...keep up the good work.
