new springs

Red Hills

In the dry and desert places

Jesus is our souls’ oasis

He will give us of His plenty

fill the vessels once so empty,

….pour His waters on the ground,

….living waters gushing round.


See the land so black and barren;

God will make a watered garden:

fruitfulness where once

……..was parchedness,

light to break into the darkness,

….upper springs

……..and nether springs

….in the field

……..that Father’s given.

– from Celtic Daily Prayer

The painting is called Red Hills and is by an artist named Arlayne Peterson.

One thought on “new springs

  1. Thanks for this. Text and image are both pure loveliness and chime with a lot of my thoughts these days. About emptiness and living water.
