Living Waters

The waters are living! Full of God’s bounty and beauty in East Matagorda Bay.

Water; powerful, wise and worthy of much respect and consideration.
Much like the gift of Living Water from God
when we believe in His son,
referring to the spirit of Jesus living within if we choose to receive him, (Galatians 4:6).

“Whoever believes in me, as the scripture has said,
streams of living water will flow from within him.” (John 7:38)
