ARE YOU THIRSTY?
Have you felt a spiritual thirst lately? ~ The feeling that you're missing a vital ingredient your life needs to function, in the same way our bodies need water? ~ I remember back to when I traveled to Baghdad, Iraq, with the Australian military as a speaker and MC for the troops. In the briefing, aside from what to do if we were kidnapped (very important info!) the other main point of training was the extreme importance of drinking water. ~ Iraq is a desert, so the mere fact of being there would drain our hydration more than usual. ~ The solution was NOT to wait until we realized we were thirsty: once we reached the point of noticing our thirst, dehydration was already pulling our bodies into decline. ~ The answer was to continually drink water, whether we were thirsty or not. ~ It got me thinking: life is like a desert. ~ It strips away our awareness of God's incredible love and kindness, if we are not careful to keep replenishing our memory banks. ~ It's up to us, to keep drinking in the truth of God - daily - before we complain of 'feeling it anymore'. ~ Drink today, BEFORE you feel thirsty. ~ Isaiah 55 says, "Come all who are thirsty, come to the waters." ~ Fast Spiritual Hydration recipe = Pick up your Bible, ask God to cover you with a blanket of His love and guide you to the words you need to read today. Just 1 or 2 verses, read with expectation that God is speaking to you through His living word, can refresh and fill you for the day ahead. ~ Will you drink today? ~ 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.” ~
