“As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.”
What’s in my heart? Too often I find impatience and bitter feelings that scald the ones I love . . .
“If a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, then I know nothing of Calvary love. For a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, however suddenly jolted.”
“My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.”
That’s why God must empty me—so that He can fill me again with that sweet, life-giving water. He helps me let all the ugliness go. And replaces it with Himself.
Selah! Pause and think of that!
