More

Today I am linking up with the women of Five Minute Friday. The idea is simple: Write for five minutes flat on the week’s posted topic. This week’s word is : MORE

For some reason the passage of scripture which came to me is this one from Joshua chapter 15:

16And Caleb said, “I will give my daughter Aksah in marriage to the man who attacks and captures Kiriath Sepher.” 17Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb’s brother, took it; so Caleb gave his daughter Aksah to him in marriage.

18One day when she came to Othniel, she urged him b to ask her father for a field. When she got off her donkey, Caleb asked her, “What can I do for you?”

19She replied, “Do me a special favor. Since you have given me land in the Negev, give me also springs of water.” So Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.

‘give me also springs of water’

You see Aksah knew she had the land, had the inheritance, but she wanted more. She wanted her & her land to flourish, she wanted it to be watered, she wanted it to bear fruit, she wanted more.

‘Give me also springs of water’.

The water which will well up and become life-giving, the water which refreshes our souls, the springs which remain constant and fresh and which won’t run dry.

Lord give me also springs of water.

Give me this water so that I can drink deeply of it, give me this water so that I can flourish, give me this water so that I can more than just survive, give me this water so that I can thrive and flourish for Your Glory.

Give me also springs of water.
