What if my life was like a fountain? What if hope, grace, peace, and love flowed freely, never drying up or feeling depleted? Try as I might to fill that top bowl of my "fountain" with the things of this world, approval, accumulating stuff, gaining advantage, etc. it never seems to fill up enough to spill out into the bowl below and then the bowl beyond that. Trying to fill my own fountain makes me weary and ultimately burned out. But when I build into my day time to pray and do a devotion, somehow that top bowl begins to fill and the more often I do this, the fuller that bowl becomes and starts to spill over into the next bowl and my fountain begins to flow over into other areas of life. My desire and quite frankly, struggle, is to live a life that is overflowing with the love of Christ that it may even be splashing onto things I do not even expect or imagine.
"If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." ~ John 7:37-38
