From water to bread

Psalm 65:9 “You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained.” (NIV)*

God sends streams

To water the land

To produce a crop

Providing grain for bread.


So, too,

Living waters flow

To water the land

To produce a crop

Providing daily bread.


So, Lord,

Any living water

That flows through me

May it water the land

Produce a crop

Providing bread of life.


poem by Patty Perkins

Dedicated to blogging friends who pour living water…that others may know the Bread of Life.
