Deep Wells

“There is no pit so deep, 

that God’s love is not deeper still.” 

— Corrie ten Boom

Deep cisterns wait, unending

wells of refreshing; sweet

and clear, life-giving springs.

We lower our emptiness down,

down, down into a darkness

we can feel, our souls weighted,

but it is in the deepest places

we become ready to be filled,

our hearts thirsting for living

water, that which restores us.

Our parched flesh awaits 

renewal, the saturation 

of grace, baptism, rebirth. 

We cannot slake this need

with self nor can this world

quench us — this is holy work,

replenishment only God 

can give us.
