Around the Year With Emmet Fox #essentialsofrecovery


LET DOWN YOUR BUCKET

We live in the Presence of God. The Bible says, In him we live, and move, and have our being (Acts 17:28). 

This limitless Power, which is Intelligence and Love - God - can be contacted at any time by turning to Him in thought, and allowing Him to fill our hearts. Whenever we do this He at once begins to influence our lives for peace and harmony and freedom.

A party of shipwrecked sailors were drifting in an open boat on the Atlantic Ocean. They had no water, and were suffering agonies from thirst. Another small boat came within hailing distance, and when the shipwrecked mariners cried out for water, the newcomers said, "let down your bucket." This sounded like cruel mockery. But when the advice was repeated several times, one of the sailors dipped the bucket overboard - and drew up clean, fresh, sparkling water! 

For several days they had been sailing through fresh water and did not know it. They were out of sight of land, but off the estuary of the Amazon, which carries fresh water many miles out to sea. 

Closer is he than breathing; nearer than hands and feet. - Tennyson
