We should never want to draw from a "well," where we hope, wish, and pray something happens or that it soothes our thirst temporarily. We should desire to draw from "living water," where we will thirst no more.
John 4:14 says, "14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
Do you remember Jesus did not judge the Samaritan woman's past when they were at the well in the fourth chapter of John? She was married five times. Others misunderstood the Samaritan woman due to her sexual history, and she lived with a man who was not her husband. Jesus still sat and spoke to her; despite all, He knew.
Do you know Jesus and the Samaritan woman had the lengthiest one on one conversation in the book of John?
No matter your situation, background, or your past, Jesus can and will talk with you as well. He already knows who you are, what you are doing, and what you have done. Will you draw from "living water," or will you continue to draw from something that will dry up and will have you thirsting again?
Father, thank You for waking me up this morning. Thank You for starting me on my way. Father, I am thirsty, and I am thirsting for You. Father, honor Your words in John 4:14. Could you speak to me, Father, despite all I have done and the marks I have missed? I desire to conversate and have a deeper relationship with You. I desire to have everlasting life. Only You Father can bring this to pass. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
