Thirsty flowers

Thirsty flowers

Flowers need water, everyone knows that. But sometimes we, humans, can also feel like thirsty flowers.

Is your life a bit like this…

  • Growing up…
  • Finish school and education or not…
  • Looking out for the love of your life…
  • Maybe being so lucky to find him/her…
  • Have kids or not…
  • Being busy with daily life and meanwhile grow older…
  • Work until getting retired…
  • Travel around or enjoy home at old age…
    … and then life is over?

Maybe you recognize things from your own life, maybe not, after all this is just an example.

Whatever the course of your life may be, at some point this thought might have crossed your mind: “Is this all there is in life?”…

No: there is more in life!

The famous philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote in his book Pensées:

“What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God Himself.”

To say it more simple: you can only be complete in life and find true happiness, if you make room for God in your life. God would love to make you complete by getting to know Him!

Cool clear water

The Lord Jesus Christ compared this inner craving with being thirsty or hungry. He invites every person who has an inner thirst or hunger for more in life, to come to Him [1]. And not only will He completely satisfy your spiritual thirst, He wants you to have living water that is so abundant, that you can share it with others as well[2]. And guess what: this living water is even for free[3]!

Let’s go and start searching for it[4]!
