Someone wrote in response to “Unlikely and Impossible” that they were low and needed inspiration.
Got your note, you sound down on the ground. Well, me, too, that’s where I’ve been a bunch.
The inspiration you’re looking for is the Water of Life that you have drunk from, and now exists as a Living Well that never runs dry that comes out of the midst of your being, out of your own self where God has taken to dwelling hiddenly. He made the promise to the woman at the well… “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14)
Now that is true in you. Not in the level of our feelings, which change with the wind. But in the guts, in the inner heart, there God shines out of us, not for our own benefit (though of course we are eternally benefited), but to light up the world around us. And it isn’t “our responsibility” to “make” that happen, because He is the One Who promised an everlasting Spring coming out of our midst that is Him living and dwelling in us and wearing us as a mask to appear incognito in the world.
So that inspiration which comes only from God is in you.
All my love,
FEEL DRAGGY? [Fred Pruitt] 4-22-04 1
