When like the woman at the well

When, Like the Woman At the Well

The Jesus I know goes out of his way to meet with messy girls like us. But, sometimes I think we are just faking it because we view neediness as weakness. But, I think neediness really is something we have need of wrapped in hope. Hope always rises. My wheels have been spinning for months. We spin faster and harder, yet find ourselves stationary. We always do the same things because it feels safer. Women with an unsatisfied thirst will always look for something to fill them up.

She had heart-thirst…that condition where you drink in all the wrong things hoping to feel anything other than the shame you carry. Not to Jesus. He came too, at the same time for the same drink, probably just to meet the girl with the messy heart. He asked her for a drink. You want me to scoop up water to quench your thirst with dirty hands?

Jesus wanted water from her dirty hands. She was a woman accustom to giving men more than they deserved in hopes of feeling some sort of worth. Jesus had other intentions of giving her worth by accepting the only thing she had to offer him, a drink. Abundance will be your new companion. It was about noon. How can you ask me for a drink? Where can you get this living water? Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.

What you have just said is quite true. When he comes, he will explain everything to us. But, I think what he wants for me is to keep coming thirsty to soak in more of him, more depth from wells that satisfy. So, I clear my cluttered schedule and unwind my spinning, clutter mind for depth over accolades and accomplishments. I keep showing up because I know the power of a needy woman who is unafraid to show up thirsty. Jesus went out of his way to meet with needy people.

I want my life to be reflective of that. So just come as you are, needy and thirsty. And allow your days to be interrupted by thirsty people who need what you have to offer. I know your list of lovers, and yet you were chronically unloved.

Unloved will no longer be your label. Beloved is your new name. But, right now, for the first time, this is all about you. And, your unstoppable thirst. This is our Jesus, the one who meets us in our messy places.

Hymn #196: When, like the Woman at the Well

He told me the story of how this song came to be. He was in the office at Wesley, waiting for a couple who had an appointment to talk about their wedding. The couple was late.

The Samaritan woman at the well is a figure from the Gospel of John , in John — The woman appears in John 4 :4—42, However below is John — But he had to go through Samaria.
