Living Water melting Ice

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” (John 7) 

a poem by: Carole L. Haines

O the sound is loud and sudden, Living Water melting ice

easing, releasing, loosening, the hardness of my heart

as I sit here, and let it soak in deep

oh Word of God, soothing Word of God

melt this heart of mine which life has frozen

as I sit here in your presence, listening to the silence, I feel my grip loosening

I cannot hold on to what is never mine

the sound is quieting, both within and without, as you speak the truth in love to me

oh how I need your truth to touch these hidden places, these idols of the heart

oh how I need your truth to soften where I am broken and torn apart

living water, living word

speaking things I’ve often heard, but now I’m really hearing

now I’m really listening, really seeing, really knowing

God, knowing God, seeing you, hearing you

my trust somehow arises from a place I thought had died

but no one can kill the Spirit’s work within my life

O, Living water melting Ice, Living Word of God soaking in

To a Heart worn and battered, to a life grown cold

do Your work within me, I fully rest within You now

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” (John 7)
