Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for Jesus! Of course I am every day, but today I read something that renewed my thankfulness for Him, and one of the many reasons why. I want to share with you what I posted today on my bible reading blog....

"In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink." John 7: 37

This was one of the first verses I was shown when being convicted by the Holy Spirit about salvation. What's so neat, is that today, it means something completely different. I am already saved, I already have that living water, Praise God! But there are so many times that I still thirst. I thirst for peace when I am troubled. I thirst for understanding when I'm lost and confused. I search for grace when I am broken. I search for mercy when I am convicted and burdened with sin. This verse speaks to me, and shows me exactly where I can go, no matter what I am thirsting for. I can come to Jesus, and drink and gain all these things that I search for. He is my best friend, my comforter, my intercessor. Praise God for giving us His Son, and the constant living well, that I have to draw from!
