Colleen Young, I believe the Lord has an invitation for you. I believe that he is saying to you that he has a deep well that he hopes you will ask for a drink from. His well gives perseverance, patience, wisdom, empathy and strength of purpose. He desires to share the best of what he has with you. He will provide to you that which you need in order to feel refreshed in hard moments and refreshed in times of celebration. His desire is that you would ask him for a drink. Matthew 7:7-8 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Father we thank you for Colleen Young and the respect for her role that she maintains. We honour your offer to provide her with refreshing. We ask for your presence to be apparent to her as she receives your gifts. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
