The Fountain of Life

You are the fountain of life. The light by which we see. Psalm 36:9

My heart is overflowing, looking for a place to settle.

After full days that have run into full weeks that continue to accelerate, I need to pause and rest by that fountain of life.

I need to view my day through the light of Christ and not through the darkness that threatens to overcome me.

I am grateful for compassion that reaches out when I feel contempt.

As my insides churn and I anticipate what today may bring, my heart feels faint. But all I need is to be present in this moment. I am not guaranteed others.

    This was what my heart needed to hear this morning. I feel that similar acceleration going on, and in those moments I tend to flail around looking for anything to grab onto instead of realizing Christ is the steady rock that I can stand on and find rest! I’m blessed to have you as a sister to speak truth, and live a genuine life. Love you.

      Yes! And I love the image of a fountain just rushing over us with mercy and grace. Of sitting securely on the rock with feet splashing in the water basking in warmth and light. I love that YOU live life with me close at heart and are only a phonecall, text, or blogpost away. Hugs and love!
