Drinking Water

I had a killer headache on Friday. I even took a nap to fight it off: perhaps it was fatigue. I had to take some medicine and drank lots of water. After I was a little more awake and was less drowsy, the headache wasn’t as powerful. A day later, I still felt that headache. You know, you can feel the kinds of headaches and determine where they may be from? It was a couple of days later, I realized: DEHYDRATION! I thought up the excuses and the reasons for consuming such little water: I went for coffee rather than lots of water. I went for juice instead of pure water. I simply got busy. I’m a mom to five kids and I’m doing so much! All these thoughts swirled through my head.

As I spoke with my husband, listing off possible reasons for headache. Home educating, nursing a baby, etc; it hit me: that I didn’t realize until days later that I have not been drinking a lot of water! I was dehydrated!!

I felt the Spirit say to my heart, “It’s like with Living Water… ” I need to be filling up with spiritual water daily and constantly! I know in my own heart, I tend to do devotionals or reading through a ministry blog or with the variety and options of videos via Facebook, Vimeo or YouTube, I’ll consume info this way rather than time with God in his presence and through his word.

Friends, during this season where rest and the world has come to a halt, almost. Let’s go into God’s word and read and know him more through his Word, The Bible.

I don’t want to be physically dehydrated anymore and I definitely don’t want spiritual dehydration. Only the Holy Spirit fills us and infuses his grace! The last couple of days, I have been consuming water intentionally and I write down numbers with little check boxes so I am drinking water and staying hydrated. Such is in our spiritual lives: we can be intentional about our time spent with God and his word. Might I encourage you to schedule time, carve out time daily…

Let this passage from Psalm 27:4 be our prayer:

 The one thing I ask of the Lord—
    the thing I seek most—
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
    delighting in the Lord’s perfections
    and meditating in his Temple.

Life can be full of hope and abundance; I am certain we can find it because the life we want and desire: Jesus came to give us life and we can have it abundantly! A little about me: I am a wife, first. Next, I am a mama to five children; my husband and I have four daughters and son! I love to connect and talk about things of God and look for beauty in life.
