all who are thirsty

The faint glow of the street lights shone through the stain glass windows as the sweet sound of a few hundred voices rand through the sanctuary. Eyes closed, I let out a sigh of relief. In that moment, my heart is content.

Jacob's Well is truly a beautiful community. My return tonight after a short stint away reaffirmed its importance in my life. Words continually fall short of describing what the Jacob's Well community means to me, how they helped pick up the shattered bits of faith left in my life and began to mend and nurture them three and a half years ago. What a beautiful example of the body of Christ.

I needed to be there tonight.
To be reminded.
To be refreshed.

"Begin at once; before you venture away from this quiet moment, ask your King to take you wholly into His service and place all the hours of this day quite simply at His disposal, and ask Him to make and keep you ready to do just exactly what He appoints. Never mind about tomorrow; one day at a time is enough. Try it today, and see if it is not a day of strange, almost curious peace, so sweet that you will be only too thankful when tomorrow comes to ask Him to take it also."
--Francis Ridley Havergal
Blessed when your loved ones
Are the ones who hurt you most
Blessed when you lose your
Own identity
Then blessed when you find it
And it has been redeemed
Blessed when you see what
Your friends can never be
Blessed with your eyes closed
Then blessed you see me
