JJ Heller: The Well

I love this song.  Singer JJ Heller says ‘Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, I already feel I’m late.  There aren’t enough hours in the day.  I’m not equipped to handle it.  I’m not a good enough Mum.  I feel like I’m running behind and not measuring up.  When I sing this song, it’s a reminder to me that I don’t have to measure up, and I never will if I’m looking to myself to be my own source of strength.  That’s what’s so beautiful about the Lord, is that He has told us that He will provide for all of our needs and His source is unending.  We’ll never exhaust it or drain it, and He will never run dry.’

With lines like ‘I was chasing the wind, I should have been chasing You’ and ‘I was rich as a king but my heart was broke’, this song reminds us that Jesus is our source and the portion we’ve been given.

The light-hearted video is filmed by singer songwriter JJ’s husband, Dave.  It’s a great watch.

Isaiah 43:19: “Watch closely: I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; Waters will flow where there had been none.”

Ecclesiastes 2:11: “But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless–like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere.”

John 7:38: He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.

John 4:29: “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?”
