Dry Wells

Dry wells

In the depths of our hearts

A deep ache of emptiness

Where life should flow


We’ve filled them up with dirt

Clogged them up with sin

And the dryness has taken hold

The clay and the stone have begun to crack


You come and dig a new well

In the desert of my heart

Salvation marks a new beginning

You take me from death to life


Joy bursts out like a fountain

Peace sprinkles our faces like a spray of fresh water

Gentleness washes over us like a soothing stream


Faithfulness gives us a reliable source to depend on

Hope causes long dead flowers to bloom again

Love quenches our deep thirst


You can’t stop up this well

You can’t exhaust its supply

Take as much as you need

You never have to feel dry again


“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:38 (NIV)
