Knowing God has transformed my life in every way. Throughout my lifetime as a follower of Jesus I have realized that the more I know Him, the more I love Him. And that has planted in me a passionate pursuit to know and love Him more. As I have traveled around the country and across the globe over the last several years, most often to lead worship for various women’s ministries, I have noticed a common theme: women are longing for a deeper and more meaningful connection to God and each other.
Deeper Well has been born out of my desire to help women see that longing met in a deep and life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells the beautiful story of The Woman at the Well where we get to listen in on a conversation Jesus has with the Samaritan woman. She was lost and longing. Excluded. Coming to the well in the heat of the day because she was an outcast in her community. Returning day after day, she was thirsty for what eluded her. And Jesus said to her at the well that day, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.” (John 4:13). I have come to clearly see that in my attempt to fill my deepest places of longing and my seemingly unquenchable thirst, what the world offers has never satisfied me. But what Jesus gives me always has been, and is still, more than enough. It is now the deepest longing of my heart to be filled with the living water Jesus gives. To be satisfied in Him alone.
For many years now I have chosen to stay close to Him through prayer, worship, keeping his written word hidden in my heart and staying in close relationship with others on this same journey. And much like a well, what started as a trickle has become a deep reservoir of live-giving water. A well that doesn't run dry. He continually pours His unlimited love, grace and truth into my life and He is with me in every season. It changes me and it changes others. I think of it as the digging of a deeper well; all of His character and goodness being poured into the depths of who I am so that I become more and more like Him.
I want my life to be filled to the depths and overflowing with the living water He gives, no matter the season and no matter the circumstance. I want that for you, too.
