It’s forecast to be another scorcher today but hopefully not like Monday’s temp of 108! Summer here in Texas can be brutal especially with no rain in sight. The plants are taking a beating and we’ve got to be careful to water our pets and livestock. We should be drinking even more water than usual. It’s a dry and thirsty land.
We don’t function well without many long cool drinks of water and our souls don’t either. Sometimes I think we forget to water our souls with living water. I know that I can be going along just fine with a little glass or a sip now and again but then dehydration sneaks up on me and I find myself confused, frustrated, and not doing well at all.
All it takes to get things running smoothly again is getting myself to the source, God’s Word. He wants us to come to Him, read His Word and be filled to the brim. He wants us to be like the deer in Psalms 42, panting for the water, the living water only He can provide. In verse 5, David reminds of what he would do, “Fix my eyes on God – soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.”
Stay thirsty for the Lord, just don’t wait until you are feeling the effects of dehydration to know that you’d better get yourself to the source of living water. Fix your eyes on God, praise Him, and He’ll be putting a smile on your face again in no time. For, He is your God!
Have a blessed day and start it off with a l-o-n-g cool drink from your friend, the Lord.
