"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."
Jesus painted a beautiful picture of salvation in this passage.
The salvation Jesus brings is like an artesian spring which doesn't have to be pumped. It bubbles up constantly.
Unfortunately, not every Christian's experience matches Jesus' description.
Many people relate more to an old pump which has to be pumped and pumped.
Just as a trickle of water comes, they have to rest. They lose their prime. The water stops. Then they have to start all over again.
Yet, Jesus said we would never thirst again.
This doesn't mean that one drink satisfies us forever. But, as we continue to avail ourselves of this water of life daily, we will be constantly refreshed.
The well of His life is there, but we must partake.
The dryness in a Christian's life comes when we substitute other things for the living water that only Jesus can give.
Anytime a Christian begins to thirst again, it is not a reflection on the living water that Jesus gives, but rather an indication that we have been drinking from some other source.

We all know how hard it is to get a great leather bag for a working woman who is really trying not to look like a man, because she works with many men. That one special leather briefcase that will carry her laptop, her books and her make up bag. She also definately need a compartment for her iPad, her phones and those sneaky pens. I mean, having a quick access pocket is just perfect! We all agree; we hate rummaging through our bags, that's a fact. Look no further than this amazing working lady leather briefcase: the Sanga handbag. Made in #kenya and designed by a #newyorker@walcottsandra and a #kenyan@chebet_mutai, with the intention to showcase a beautiful African story to the world. Check out the Sanga briefcase at . #leather#leatherbags#leatherbags#africandesigners#africarising

#olarrofamily with Ben Kiok - “I have been a Ranger for Olarro Conservancy for 8 years. I am passionate about the wildlife and making a difference.”
I remember writing a post on Facebook in 2013 that where you come from should not dictate where you are going. My name is June Syowia. Born and raised in Dandora. It’s where the biggest dumpsite in Kenya is located. In primary school I was in a school that was right next to the dumpsite. The playground and the dumpsite were right next to each other. There was no wall to separate us. It was just a small barrier and the smell from the dumpsite used to enter our classes. Up to today I can never forget that stench. Dandora made me tough. I was never oblivious of my environment. There is a time we were going home with my friend and she stayed in phase 4 so we had to walk through the dumpsite to get to her place. Some guy followed us and threw a huge piece of glass on us. He started chasing us and that’s the day I knew I wanted more. I was so scared, what if the glass hit us?
There is nothing wrong with wanting more. I used education as a tool because I just wanted to change my situation. Growing up, some of my friends died because they were killed from robbery incidences, some dropped out of school, some got unwanted pregnancies and others just ended up living messed up lives. I was scared for my future. I scored highly in primary school and ended up in a good school but then school fees issues came up and after a year I had to transfer to a small school in Machakos. I knew my chances at success were better in a national school but what choice did I have. I wanted to do medicine so bad. I think its coz we were made to think that the epitome of success was a professional field in engineering, medicine or law.
Our parents have always instilled values such as hard work in us since we were small. It was not questionable. It’s either you work hard or you will remain exactly where you are. I have always been ambitious. When the results came out I had an A-. #mke#sheshares#herstory#womenempowerment#feminism#nairobi#kenya
Vi presento Abdul, conosciuto in spiaggia perché mi ha visto fotografare la sua barca. Così abbiamo iniziato a parlare e mi ha spiegato che la parte centrale della barca non è altro che il tronco di un albero di mango. Me lo ha raccontato sfiorandone la superficie con la mano come molti farebbero elogiando le prestazioni della loro supercar...
Alla fine della nostra chiacchierata mi ha invitato a uscire sul mare e lui, l‘Africa e l’universo mi hanno regalato un‘esperienza incredibilmente bella, facendomi scoprire un posticino segreto che non troverete su nessuna guida turistica... #felicità#avventurastraordinaria#mare#dianibeach#beachlife#kenya#femaletravel#femaletraveller#goodtimes#visitafrica#visitelafrique

Luxury safari makeover number two: Loldia House in Kenya's Great Rift Valley.
This beautiful, "settler's homestead" style manor is full of the nostalgic glamour depicted in films and memories of yesteryear. The renovation includes some of the following undeniably chic changes:
A new dining room, with high ceilings and deep green panelled walls; a new bar with matte mahogany wood and blue-leather bar stools; bedroom and bathroom upgrades and soft furnishings; a new cottage with verandah views of Lake Naivasha; and an infinity pool elevated upon a rocky outcrop between two ancient fig trees.
This place is one for exploration and afternoon siesta and the poolside views and fireside whiskeys come standard! What an amazing reveal.
Breakfast with the gang 🍌🥐
