Even in the midst of doing things for God, we often lose sight of Him in the process. We need the refreshment of not only His grace but also His truth to get back on track. Otherwise, whether we realize it or not, we are blind-sighted, wandering aimlessly, lost in the wilderness of this world and the lost-ness of our lives, yearning for but never finding that water that can quench our thirst forever. It is my prayer and hope that the Lord will use the pages of this book to quench your soul’s thirst for Him. In a dry and weary land, may the pages of this book give to you the rich and wonderful hope that is ours as we draw closer to the One whose well never runs dry.
