    13th November 2016 – Water Power

    13th November 2016 – Water Power
    November 11, 2016 Judith Simms

    We have learned to create

    Dams,

    Which, in turn, create reservoirs

    Of water.

    Without them

    Our water supply

    Would fail.

     

    Watching the water streaming through

    We recognise its sheer

    Force and power.

    No wonder we see Jesus as

    The Water of Life!

     

    We cannot live without water;

    Jesus came to reveal

    That without God in our lives

    We are not fully alive.

     

    Jesus, we sometimes see you as gentle,

    Forgiving, loving,

    Seldom perceiving,

    (as this picture reveals,)

    The full force of your Life.

    All too frequently we pay lip service

    To the might and majesty

    Contained within your life;

    Contained,

    For otherwise it would

    Swamp, consume and destroy

    Our own fragility.

     

    You ask to dwell within us,

    And,

    In so doing,

    You bring the life giving,

    Life changing

    Water

    Which empowers and releases us.

     

    But!

    You trust us to share

    The reservoir of water

    You place in our care,

    With other thirsty people.

    Thank you for your trust.

    Give us the courage and the wisdom

    To know how to share

    That precious gift,

    To help your Kingdom grow.

    Amen.
