The Well-Watered Life by Todd L. Shuler is a book all Christians and non-Christians will appreciate reading. This book is not only a very well written and well researched examination of the life of Abraham and his descendants, but it also gives an in-depth look at what happens in life and how the failures or successes of a father can be passed down to future generations of his family.
This is a must read book for all of us as it not only explores the trials and difficulties of life but offers hope to all by giving examples of how Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, dealt with life's problems. The author's complex introspection into their lives and their relationship with God and how it affected their decisions in their everyday living, gives us insight for how we can incorporate their experiences into a guide for successful Christian living.
The book also examines the truth about how even Biblical men and women who had a close relationship with God also faced difficult times. I felt it important that Todd shows us that even people of great faith from the Old Testament made questionable decisions that we can look at and wonder how they could succeed and prosper. They did because they continued in their faith.
As Todd continues to guide us on this journey he gives us simple yet direct examples of how even when you're in the driest desert of your life there is a way of finding spiritual water that will bring you out of the desert and into the bloom that is only available to someone who continually seeks the water. The Well-Watered Life shows that seeking the water is only possible by doing your own work. You can't find water if you don't dig a well. That's how we build our faith by doing the work to dig the well. And if the well gets damaged due to circumstances, then you dig another one. I appreciated the Todd's clear analogies to not give up because faith has to be cultivated just like in the days of Isaac. And he shows us how to cultivate that faith.
Todd teaches that our relationship with God is not part-time, but a continuous action. Life is not always an easy road and sometimes we may wonder why we are not blessed with better circumstances, but as Todd shows us, the path to success is not to give up but to continue to build faith and believe and know that your work will be blessed.
The reader also learns from Todd that listening to God and doing his will is the most important part of receiving blessings. One of the best parts of the book is Todd's insightful suggestions on how to pray and set up a routine so that prayer and more importantly, receiving answers to your prayers, will be most successful. By obeying God's Word and living a blessed life we become examples who inspire non-believers to receive salvation. As Todd says, "when people ask, what makes you the way you are, what's behind you?" It's the perfect time to say "it's my faith. I will tell you more, if you want to know." He wisely states that we earn the right to witness because of the life we live. How true this is. Nothing is worse than a Christian who doesn't live what they tell others to do.
This book is inspirational, but also it brings peace to the reader showing that there is hope, and that the solution to conquer one's fears and problems is easy to obtain through faith and simple faith works. Todd reminds us of the truths of faith as in John 4:14: "But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life."
The Well-Watered Life will surely help you to be filled by the Holy Spirit, which flows like a river of life from the heart.
