Well….today I was walking with my sweet students back from their special….they have music on Wednesdays… and….. I was carrying my cup of coffee.. I had also raided the brownies left over in the office! I thought I was “set” there is nothing like having my comfort cup of morning JOE and a brownie…
One of the sweet teachers… had reminded me early on in this brain… revelation…to DRINK lots of water and lay off the caffeine !! She knows what she is talking about because she spent MANY days out of Kindergarten due to vertigo. She happened to walk by and ask the question…Is that water or coffee?? I obviously told her it was coffee…and she gave me one of those….”You NEED” to be drinking water….looks! As I walked to my room… I felt a little chided…and decided she must have known the answer to her question because IF it was water…it was awful DIRTY!
I KNOW~~~ I KNOW~~~ I need to drink more water…don’t we all? Anyway …the day goes on and at lunch time ….maybe it was the power of suggestion… my body seemed to become SOO THIRSTY for water! I went to the office and bought a bottled …AS soon as I came back to gather my children from the noisy lunch room… I begin to get this aura …It was the dreaded aura one would get when they are getting a migraine! I was headed down the migraine track fast and I knew I needed to act quick ….so , I intercepted it with medicine…and MORE WATER!
Well, I am so happy to say that the medicine worked,,, thanks to our AMAZING school nurse !! …. and I was able to return to recess for the last few minutes…and resume teaching as if I did not have any issues.
Isn’t that what it is like when we are in need of SPIRITUAL WATER?? He gives us the LIVING water!!!! It revives us and adds health to our very bones! We are refreshed and feel encouraged. Our Creator made our bodies in need of H20… water… He also made our souls in need of His water… When we don’t have it… our bodies can do weird things like get migraines… and when we don’t have HIS water …the water our souls thirst for… we become weary…. discouraged…and down right grumpy. In both cases…
If we are weary…think…how is our level of water? It may be a “H2 OH…duh” moment!
John 7:38 says… He who believes in me , as the Scripture said, “From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water…”
