Come to the Well

One of my favorite Christian contemporary groups is Casting Crowns. Their songs just resound with me, and I could listen to them all the time. It seems no matter what I’m struggling with in life, there’s a Casting Crowns song fitting for it.  

And one of my all-time favorite Casting Crowns songs is The Well.

Here is part of the lyrics that have always touch me.

I have what you need

But you keep on searchin’

I’ve done all the work

But you keep on workin’

When you’re runnin’ on empty

And you can’t find the remedy

Just come to the well

What a reassuring song this one is and what an amazing promise we find in God’s promise to always be there with us, no matter what we face.

I know there have been many times when my well of strength has run dry, both physically and spiritually. When this happens, not even rest can restore my strength, but spending time with Jesus through prayer and reading His word certainly can.   

Just like Jesus searched out the woman at the well deliberately, because He knew she was running on empty, He knows what our needs are even before we ask.

So, how’s your well these days? Is it running dry? If so, come to the source of living water that satisfies the thirst of your soul.  

John 4: 13-15 says,

Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

How’s your spiritual well doing these days? Are you running on empty? If so, you don’t have to be. Come to the well. He’s waiting just for you.

Many blessings,

Mary Alford
