That’s how I’ve felt.
As I prepared dinner several nights ago, on a day where my body was worn, I paused as I watched the boiling water on my stove. I held some angelhair noodles in one hand and as I dropped them into the churning water I began to realize how I was like that uncooked noodle. As soon as it hit the water the noodle immediately changed shape — it became soft, had energy, and moved easily.
Due to the lack of water in my life I gradually became worn — and quite easily broken.
And I’m not talking about 2 parts hydrogen to 1 part oxygen here.
I’m talking about living water — life from the Lord. Sadly, many days I’d wake up and continue on my day with my old strength. Slowly my gaze shifted to things of this world. What wasn’t done. What I needed to do. What wasn’t right. What wasn’t working.
I needed life.
Be encouraged friends — be encouraged today. Find joy, real joy, in Him.
