YOU ARE INVITED

by Marcie Bridges, @Marcie_Bridges

For I will satisfy the weary soul, 
and every languishing soul I will replenish.
At this I awoke and looked, 
and my sleep was pleasant to me.   
Jeremiah 31:25-26 (ESV)


YOU 
ARE INVITED


. . .to bring your thirsty, deserted, worn out, weary soul to the well.

Bring every burden, every heartache, every tear, every joy, every thankful thought to the One who can satisfy the deepest longings of your soul.

Come

It’s the invitation of a lifetime. The invitation of a lifeline.

Jesus is beckoning you with His outstretched hand to come and grasp on with all you have. He is inviting you to walk with Him, talk with Him, rest with Him.

The table is set just for the two of you. Come and dine. Fill yourself with the goodness of the Lord. Taste and see that He is good. That He is God.



The garden is filled with His fragrance. A bench waits for you two to sit and talk like you’ve never talked before. About anything. Everything. The best friend who listens eagerly without interruption.

The ocean is waiting for you two to walk at Sunset, hand-in-hand, enjoying the beauty of the evening. Quietly He whispers to you how much He loves you.

You are invited to spend time with the Savior with one simple word. Come. 
 

COME THIRSTY

It’s the invitation of a lifetime
from the One Who sacrificed all
echoing through eternity
sending forth a most priceless call.
Come.
Come to the waters flowing with sweet relief
from the harshness and the hardships

to the abundant life you seek.
Not from duty, force, or pressure
just His outstretched hand in love
make your way to the quiet and the stillness
where blessings of rest flood.
In the thirsting of your soul
there’s a quiet invitation
to come refresh your spirit
in the waters of His salvation.
