My Soulís Well
My hands felt parched and dry
And I reached for
lotion to apply.
As I watched the lotion soaking in,
I felt the moisture
returning once again.
Just then a wonderful thought occurred to me,
Thatís how the
healing of Godís love is supposed to be.
Godís love can enter me when I am dry.
When I am drained by
life and can only cry.
Like the lotion, Godís love can seep swiftly in
Covering all sorrow,
despair, pain, and sin.
Just like my dry skin eagerly drew in the lotionís balm,
So my dry parched
soul can drink in Godís calm.
The lotion works, but one bottle wonít be enough,
I have to keep buying
it so my skin wonít be rough.
But as many times as my soul seeks relief from above,
I will never exhaust
the abundance of the Fatherís love.
My soul never needs to seek relief from a limited supply.
All I need do is
kneel at the well that never runs dry.
