Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. 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 MSG
The background of our blog design gave us reason to pause. A hummingbird. Last summer a hummingbird found it’s way into the studio and frantically looked for his way out. Louisa tried to catch the little guy but after several unsuccessful attempts decided it best to wait and see if this little fella would settle down a bit. It was concerning to think of him trapped and possibly unable to be free again. Finally, exhaustion hit and Louisa was able to hold him gently in her hand. After all of that commotion he must need replenishment. So she brought this tiny little guest to the hummingbird feeder outside the door. Led directly to what he needed he drank and drank. In no time he was replenished and took flight!
The significance of that drink is befitting to this verse. We discussed the significance. Weighing in at about .141 ounces. The way they can fly backwards to move forward. Their iridescent coloring seen when light hits it just right. How they are attracted to red trumpet flowers and drink in quick rhythm. How much do they drink? Turns out 46 ounces in a day. A message that is signified in the necklace shown here.
His Word satisfies and brings life, even if we need to go backward before moving forward. For me I can be just as scattered in my thoughts and actions as a hummingbird but my pause to look to His Word brings new flight. Drink more daily!
May your heart be uplifted today.
