Like the woman at the well I was seeking for things that could not satisfy; and then I heard my Savior speaking: Draw from My well that never shall run dry  Fill my cup Lord, I lift it up, Lord! Come and quench this thirsting of my soul; Bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more. Fill my cup, fill it and make me whole!

Which feelings should we trust--the ones that urge you to do what you can or the ones that question the presumptuousness of barging in with suggestions to change?

(Brown, 1999)
