Unquenchable Thirst with Deep Satisfaction

Lower Hillside Dam, March 2014

As our plane from JoBurg begins its descent towards Bulawayo, an amazing sight appears. Matabeleland is a carpet of green vegetation dotted with numerous pools of water. This region has had the best rainfall in decades! The atmosphere on the ground is one of hope springing to life. Water is life and life brings exuberance, optimism and positive expectations.

Maize and other vegetables are growing everywhere and people in both urban and rural settings will not go hungry this winter. The drought had a vice grip on the province, but what an unimaginable experience to drive from Bulawayo to Victoria Falls with water under every bridge.
However the human spirit is never more alive than when it connects with perpetual power called “Living Water.” In the words of the One who generates this unique resource:
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty….and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” John 5:35-36
When we drink from the fountain of life a paradox ensues, a continual craving for more of the Savior while simultaneously experiencing a constant serenity.
” I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.” John 14:27
