 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16

I went dry and thirsty to the font. I believed I would find water there. I prayed that I would. I held my breath and fought the swelling of expectations as I flew. Everything had been arranged, everything moved smooth and easy Clearly, God was conducting this. I stooped low and plunged emty hands in, I drank slow and cautiously at first, The roar of voices overwhelming at times. So many faces and so much rich beauty.

Have you seen 200 women in one space who all live for Jesus? Have you ever been blinded by that glow?

I hadn’t.

Not like this. 

My heart swelled with each sip of Him. Each time I brought hands to my lips to be refreshed, His goodness overflowed. It came in a deluge. A wild and overwhelming flood of grace, just poured out heavy and satisfying. I went from bending at the edge of the font, cautiously dipping, to splashing in puddles, as God’s abundance reigned down on me.

I am full. I am refreshed. I am moved.
