Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

Living Waterfall

Revived by Living Water


(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)

The rushing of a waterfall

The trickling of a stream

Power to inspire and soothe

Have both, it does seem


Why this connection

Between water and heart?

How can I explain this?

Where can one start?


Transparent and pure

Water has power to cleanse

We see also this power

Through a Biblical lens


Waters baptize and renew

Washing signifies a new start

No wonder this sweet tie

Between water and the heart


The sight of a waterfall

The sound of its rushing flow

Wash over us divine comfort

Peace and inspiration grow


The movement of waters

Keeps them pure and clean

Felt, as they flow into the heart

Not simply heard and seen


For God seems to speak

In the waters created by His Hand

He says “Drink of my Living Water,

Enter now the Promised Land”


For the Living Water of Christ

Quenches always the thirst

It brings to us life eternal

Beginning and end, forever and first


This connection then is sacred

Between water and the heart

God is ever intentional

In the creation of His Art


So let the waters rush and flow

Let the streams meander and wind

Let us wash our hearts from sin

Renewing the spirit and the mind


And we embrace the Living Water

The Gift that Jesus longs to give all

We celebrate the blessing of eternal life

As we stand in awe of His Waterfall

    Caroline, your Poem is beautiful!!

    So lovingly said!

    How the Living Water cleanses and refreshes our souls.

    It reminds me of the prayer “O Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a Fount of Mercy for us, I trust in Thee!”

    Caroline your beautiful words took me back to when I was a little girl and we would visit my grandmother’s bungalo in the country. Every day up there we’d walk to this beautiful stream and fill containers with the clean, cool water! I’ve always loved being near the water ever since – we visited Niagara Falls which is awesome, and we have taken several cruises – I love watching the ocean. God is amazing and awesome and so is His creation. Thank you for this stroll down memory lane!

    What a beautiful poem. I love water — lakes, rivers, waterfalls. All of it has a calming effect on me. It reminds me of God.

    Have a Victorious Day!

      Sweet Marianne,

      Thank you for your beautiful comment! Like you, I love water! The sound, look and feel of it is remarkably refreshing — and indeed reminiscent of the Living Water we find in our Lord!
