Daily Living Made Easier

This Friday, bloggers around the world will be writing about the world's need for WATER as part of Blog Action Day 2010. That's a subject just as important for the Sandwich Generation, caring for elderly parents and grandkids, as anyone else. Particularly since caregiving has no borders! Every nation, big or small, has its share of caregiving needs and caregivers. And water plays an important role in all our caregiving needs – from feeding and bathing those adorable grandbabies to bathing and caring for those beloved elderly parents. I do hope you'll join us tomorrow and Friday for more of SandwichINK's Blog Action Day posts.  I also want to encourage all of you who are fellow bloggers to join us in this important discussion.

But, as important as water is to our physical bodies,

there is a water that is even more vital to our spiritual selves –

the Living Water from Jesus Christ!

Today, for Word-Filled Wednesday,

I wanted to share some encouraging Bible verses for everyone,

including all of us boomers and our beloved seniors on down to those cute grandkids,

on just that topic…

Jesus is the River Water of Life for us all - encouraging Bible verses for the Sandwich Generation

O LORD, the hope of Israel, All who forsake You will be put to shame. Those who turn away on earth will be written down, Because they have forsaken the fountain of living water, even the LORD. Jeremiah 17:13

Jesus said, "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.' " John 7:38

…for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life ; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes." Revelation 7:17

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth ; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." Then He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. Revelation 21:1-6

...a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb… Revelation 22:1

 

For all of us, from grandkids on up to boomers and beyond to seniors, this is Good News indeed.

I don't know about you but I'm really looking forward to NO MORE TEARS! Aren't those especially encouraging Bible verses for the Sandwich Generation!  And for more uplifiting Bible verses and pictures, be sure to visit Internet Cafe Devotions.

    THIS is just amazing! I teach a girl’s Bible Study on Friday and this week, (I just finished printing them out!) we’re doing a “living water” activity! We’re talking about these “water” verses and we’re going to wrap water bottles with the verses to pass out to the school…it’s just confirmation for me that this IS the lesson we need to do! Caring has no borders, no age limits…and we all are called to spread the message as to where the “living water” is!

    Kaye, I’m so blessed by this!
    peace,
    lori

  13. Great reminder and beautiful picture!

    Beautiful Kaye!! You know–I’m always amazed that God uses people like you to bring scripture to life…so that people who are too stubborn to drink the water can have it brought to them!! (Myself included sometimes). I big puffy heart you. πŸ˜‰
