Everyday Waiting at the Well
Are you waiting for your child to return, for the reconciliation of one has gone a wrong direction? It’s so hard. I heard from a woman who wrote, “It’s hard to see what the purpose is in my son being estranged from his loving Christian family and the many prayers for our reunion, but it never comes.”
THAT is so hard. Jesus often asks us to wait at the well for those we love just as He did with the Samaritan woman whose sin was adultery. Jesus didn’t tell the woman she was a sinner only that He knew. He let her eyes be opened as she knew Him more. Silence allows a person to reveal it to themselves and lets us still be accessible when their eyes are opened. He wants to meet us where we’re at and fill the void of thirst. Romans 8:1, “There’s no condemnation with Jesus” but we sure do a good job of it. Go to the well and wait Jesus is there too…everyday.
