Why do I go to empty wells
To satisfy my thirst?
I bypass Living Water and
Go other places first.
I turn to food or clothes or sex
Or turn the TV on
And lose myself in this sad world
‘Til hope is nearly gone.
But nothing feeds this hunger like
My Savior, Jesus Christ.
He was the perfect Lamb and for
My sin, was sacrificed.
His mercy and His saving grace
Are really all I need.
Remind me that it’s by Your love
Alone that I am freed.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
