My Soul Needs Fracking (Frack Me, Lord.)

I woke up this morning with the word fracking in my mind?  What does that mean?

Fracking is the procedure of blasting pressurized water (along with sand and chemicals) down a well so as to fracture the rock deep beneath the ground, below the aquifer, and release the oil or natural gas it contains, pushing it to the surface.  It is sometimes called hydraulic fracturing.

As I lay in bed this morning I realized that my soul needs to be fracked.  I need the living water that Jesus talked about (the Holy Spirit), deep in my soul, to fracture the hardness of my heart and force out the selfish, natural desires that miss up my life and alienate me from God.

Frack me, Lord, so that, no longer bound by my sin within, I can do, everything You tell me to.

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

Is the living current of Christ cruising within you or do you have a dead battery under your hood?

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
