God desires to make your life purposeful, meaningful, peaceful and abundant. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 (NIV)
When you drink the living waters offered in Jesus, it does not necessarily mean a life of ease and comfort. The Well is not intended to convince you that Christian faith makes your troubles go away, but instead to show you how God is present with you in those troubles - AND - how God will use those troubles to shape your heart in ways that truly change and transform you for His glory. In the end, this life is not about us, it's about how we honor and glorify God.
