Perhaps you’re barely able to remember or imagine what it might be like rejuvenated by rivers of living water, not just physically, not just socially, but spiritually, at the deepest part of who you are.

God has word for you today.

You may not know if you’re going to make it, economically, physically, spiritually.

Can these dry bones live?

You might not know the answer, but God has spoken, and he has spoken Good News.

Can these dry bones live?

“Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones:

…these irritated and frustrated, lonely and scared, exhausted and spent, hungry and hopeless, thirsty-yet-never-seeming-to-be-quenched dry bones…

Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones:

“Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the LORD.”” (Ezekiel 37:5–6, ESV)

What Good News God has spoken. He will do it! When we have no resources left, when we are dry and cracked, jumbled up and quite literally dead, God’s holy word will bring us to life.
