What image best describes your heart?
A water-drenched kid in front of an open fire hydrant?
Or a bristled, desert tumbleweed?
You're acquainted with physical thirst. Stop drinking and see what happens. Coherent thoughts vanish, skin grows clammy, and vital organs shut down. Deprive your body of necessary fluid, and it will tell you.
Deprive your sould of spiritual water, and it will tell you. Dehydrated hearts send desperate messages. Snarling tempers. Waves of worry. Growing guilt and fear. Hopelessness. Resentment. Loneliness. Insecurity.
But you don't have to live with a dehydrated heart. God invites you to tread your thirsty soul as you would treat your physical thirst. Just visit the WELL and drink deeply:
Recieve Christ's work on the cross, the energy of his Spirit, His lordship over your life, and his unending, unfailing love.
Come thirsty and drink the water of life.

More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.From Publishers Weekly:
Lucado, pastor and bestselling author of more than 50 titles, extends hope to those whose souls are "dehydrated" from neglect, fear and guilt. Lucado teaches that salvation is God's work, not ours, and that we should "[d]rink deeply from his well of grace." He encourages readers to look to God for spiritual energy, to rest in his authority or "lordship" and to wholeheartedly accept his never-ending love. Lucado's signature style—simple, easygoing, occasionally poetic—includes lots of stories that make some of the difficult truths he covers go down easy. He leaves some questions unanswered (like exactly how spiritual energy works), but also handles weighty issues (how can God be good and omnipotent, but still allow bad things to happen?) without being insincere or cavalier. While the book focuses on the grace and life God can provide, Lucado also challenges readers to live up to their faith—to pray, obey and surrender everything to God. Lucado indicates that his own heart has been dehydrated at times: "Don't you need regular sips from God's reservoir? I do.... Drink with me from his bottomless well." His writing seems to come not from the pulpit high above but from the guy next door who understands what it's like to be where readers are.
