The woman at the well points me to Jesus.
“Come and see a man who told me everything I have ever done! He cannot be the Messiah, can he?” (John 4:29)
In my weakest moments, Jesus comes to me, welcomes me, and refreshes me. He asks me questions, too. And he knows me deeply. It’s there at the well that I can be like that woman – sassy, bold, curious, and questioning. And still, in my weakness and doubt and utter exhaustion, Jesus invites me into his vast love and his living water.
I take that bold woman’s lessons to heart. I take one step after another trusting that I am not alone. I am granted the grace to know that I don’t have to do it all.
