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?
