Rich Life

l’ve been close to people who are brimming with life.
Someone who forgives when I’ve hurt them deeply.
Someone who encourages in spite of my orneriness.
Someone who invests their life in me though I stumble.
These people, men and women, are a part of Jesus’ love on earth.
They drank of Jesus and know what real life is.
It isn’t superfluous, or continuous smiling,

or clichés.
Life is beautiful and rich with a Savior-Friend but not a breeze.
I love people. I pray I’ll learn to love them well.
I long to drink more of Jesus and well up with authentic Him.
But those who drink the water I give
will never be thirsty again.
It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them,
giving them eternal life. John 4:14 NLT
