Musings From A Musical Mind

Thirsty

Water flowing from a tap

Yesterday I was so thirsty.  I drank 2 full glasses of water before bed and 2 more in the middle of the night.  I know I don’t drink enough water – it has been something I’m used to – being dehydrated most of the time.  I simply don’t think about it – I’m not much of a water drinker and my body has adjusted to it.  But there are times, like last night when I HAD to have water – I was SO THIRSTY.

In the same way I was wondering if our spiritual self loses its thirst – does it adjust to not having enough of God?  Do we fill that God-given thirst in our lives with other things – so pretty soon we do not notice?   Are we spiritually dehydrated? How would we know?  What happens when we simply adjust to it – so that it becomes normal.  Are we thirsty anymore?  Do we wait until we are desperate for Him before our thirst returns?  Lord help us to be thirsty.

The lyrics to this Chris Rice song kept going through my head in the middle of the night and I wanted to share it with you today.

Are you thirsty?

 

God Bless

  1. […] Thirsty (cindyholman.wordpress.com) […]

  2. I’m mildly diabetic so I drink a lot, although there are times when I forget to. I think being thirsty for God shows itself in my life by me getting upset and totally ready to throw in the towel with all I have to deal with on a daily basis. I’m depending on only me and me, as we all know, just don’t cut the mustard! I read something a few weeks ago that made me think. It said. . . “People say God doesn’t give us more than we can handle. Yes, He does. It’s only when we have more than we can handle that we turn to Him.” Food. . . or water for thought?

    • I’ve often struggled with the same thought – but I’m convinced that somehow we ARE able to deal with anything that is thrown at us BECAUSE He helps us do it. Just enough – or more than enough is splitting hairs – as long as we turn it over to Him and recognize that we can’t do it anymore – I think that’s the point that the heaviness lifts and He comes to take over. As long as we think we can handle it – He says, ‘fine’.

  3. Thanks for sharing your spirtual insight. I used to be thirsty for God’s love and did not realize it. I thank God daily for saving me from myself!!! I am so full of his love and I pray that I will never be thirsty again. God Bless

  4. Beautiful post and song, Cindy. Thanks for sharing…

  5. Good point Cindy. As someone who just generally does not like drinking water (I’ve started adding a little of that powdered lemonade mix, and that has been helping), it was a connection that made sense. Blessings,

    • I don’t like lemonade mix that much – but I love ice tea – so I guess that’s a good substitute as well. I’ve tried squeezing lemons in a glass of water which is supposed to be good for me – but it’s hard to get the water down that way too! I’m a mess.

  6. I’m NEVER thirsty. I am almost always severely dehydrated. It’s to the point where my fingers are often shriveled even without putting them in water. I’m pretty sure I get headaches and dizzy from not having enough water, yet I never really want to drink. It’s been a battle for years.

    However, I love learning about God and seeing Him work in the lives of His children. I love when my son makes analogies about life and relates them to what he read in the Bible. I love church on Sunday morning where I get the benefit of my pastor’s experience and study so that I may learn things about passages I never realized before, even though I had read them many times on my own.

    • That’s my problem too – I’m usually not thirsty – until it’s way past the point of severe. Although I do not get sick when I drink water like you do – not sure why that happens to you – as our bodies are mostly water and seem to need it! Can you drink other liquids besides water?
