What Do You Do When You’re Thirsty?

By: Jenifer Metzger

When you are thirsty, what do you do?

You get a drink. Of course.

Do you read a book about getting a drink? Do you listen to a radio message on getting a drink? Do you read a blog about getting a drink?

No, you go to the source, get a drink and have your thirst quenched.

When you are thirsty for God, what do you do?

Do you read a book? Listen to a radio message or preaching message?  Do you read a blog?

These things are not bad. In fact, they are good. They are often very helpful and encouraging. They can give you a new outlook or remind you of a truth you once knew. But they will not quench your thirst.

When you are thirsty for God, go to God. Go to the source. The Real Thirst Quencher. Spending time reading the Word, praying, worshipping, just being in the presence of God is the only way to quench that thirst.

It's time for Share A Link Wednesday! Each Wednesday we invite you to leave a link to your latest blog post in the comments. We still desire to connect women of God with one another and encourage each other in Christ. So grab a cup of coffee or glass of sweet tea, sit back and visit a few blogs. Be encouraged and share your own stories.
