About the poet 

My friend Shawn Bailey is a poet and a photographer. Both this poem – “Quenched” – and the photo are her works of art. Shawn made a bookmark for the gals in our Bible study, probably twenty-five years ago, and I still use the bookmark. I’ve also read the poem many times. The truth in this poem is as true and as real today as it was then. With her permission, I am sharing her poem and her photo.

About thirst – and being quenched

Shawn and I both hope that you experience the blessing of a thirst that is quenched. We also wish for you, if you feel parched and dry, that you will find rivers – not trickles – of living Water in Jesus Christ. He truly is the living Water. When we drink from Him, we will never thirst again.


Jesus said

Jesus said, to the Samaritan woman at the well,  “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”

He also said, “But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

  1. This poem touched my heart. God’s grace does indeed constantly trickle down all day every day.

    P.S. I believe there is a typo in the tittle of the poem. Is not the n missing?
    Thought you might want to know.

  2. Yes. His grace is always there, waiting to fill us.
    Thanks for noting the error. I have made the correction. 🙂
