Woman at the Well

I heard Olivia Lane’s testimony while listening to The Message on XM radio this week.

It reminded me of myself during my teen years and also in my late 20’s. It represents many other young women trying to find their way right now.

Everyone’s spiritual path is different, even though I would love to convince every girl out there not to take the long way around to finding Jesus.

I cannot change the course that God has charted out for anyone. It’s probably a good thing that I can’t. ❤️

He has to lead some like the woman at the well. She was the broken-hearted, shameful woman who had never understood real love.

She walked alone in in the heat of the day, yearning for a different kind of water.

That journey might have seemed long or repetitive to her, but in time, it ended up as a divine appointment…to meet the Savior of the world.


Olivia Lane’s journey from atheism to Jesus spanned many years, but in His perfect timing, it led her to that living water and to write The Woman At The Well.

Woman At The Well (lyrics)

I heard a story from the Bible
When I was just a little girl
About a broken-hearted woman
Who met the Savior of the world

Thought it was just another story
One that the preacher man would read
But as I’m sittin’ here at home
Drinkin’ red wine all alone
I think that woman might be me

‘Cause tonight I feel just like
The woman at the well
Wondering how someone could love me
When I can’t love myself
But You want me as I am and that sounds crazy
I guess maybe that’s why grace is so amazing

Staring at that empty bottle
I swear I caught a glimpse of Him
He met me right there at the bottom
And turned that wine to living water
And taught me how to love again

Yeah, tonight I feel just like
The woman at the well
Wondering how someone could love me
When I can’t love myself
But You want me as I am and that sounds crazy
I guess maybe that’s why grace is so amazing

It’s no longer just a story when I read it (when I read it)
‘Cause I’ve seen Him for myself and I believe it

‘Cause tonight I feel just like
The woman at the well
Wondering how someone could love me
When I can’t love myself
But You want me as I am and that sounds crazy
I guess maybe that’s why grace is so amazing

Just like the story from the Bible

I heard when I was just a girl

I’m the broken-hearted woman

Who met the Savior of the world…
