Water is life!

Posted on October 5, 2012 at 11:07 AM
 
He turned the desert into pools of water and the parchedground into flowing springs (Psalm 107:35)
 
The last few months have been a roller coaster ride with my everydaydehydration and I mean the kind of thirst that when you go to talk you can't due to the mouth being so dry.  Yet, I am having a water retention problem so when you put these two together you have a very dried up feeling of being and looking like the big marshmallow man in Ghost Busters. The doctors say to drink water, water and more water... I already am drinking a couple gallons of water a day and no the doctors said that is not what is causing the bloating. So besides already being a menopausal, bloated dried up 56 year old woman I am also beginning to feel depressed.
 
Being depressed is new to me as I have always tried to find the joy in everything I come across. But, I am not lost as I fall to knees and cry out to God to not let me go down into the rabbit hole that I see. Instead this thought comes to my head "Renew my mind, dear Father, I feel so sluggish and spent." Then about 10 minutes into praying Romans 8:6 comes to mind.To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
 
We all know that water is absolutely crucial for survival and success. Water is needed for survival so one does not die of dehydration. Water also is crucial for our success in our spirituality. We can die unless we drink of the water that Jesus offers us. Like the scripture above in Psalm 107:35 says Christ offers us something that only He can give, and through that He changes the barren desert of our lives into a fertile garden, the burning sand into bubbling springs.
 
Now, even though I thirst for water for my psychical being and the doctors and I are working on correcting this type of thirst my spirituality is being quenched by God's word and daily praying. So let me ask are any of you thirsty, parched, feeling dried up? are you staying in touch with God through praying? John 7:37 says "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink"
 
Go ahead reach for the living water each day and know this --that whoever drinks the water that Christ gives you will never thirst again (paraphrase) of John 4:14
 
Joyfully,
 
Cindy

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline." 2 Timothy 1:7

God calls each of us to engage in spiritual warfare at times. Whenever satan wants to come against one of God's children, he does so by trying to intimidate through fear. Have you recently felt as though you have been intimidated by fear? I have..Most of my friends and family would describe me as a strong, driven type A personality gal. Yet, lately I am feeling weak, vulnerable and fearful. I knew when I started writing this off and on blog that I would have to be transparent to others. It's not easy sitting here writing for all to read about my heart, soul and mind-but I came to realize that this blogging is a very therapeutic way to bring me back to the road that our Father wants me to walk along. If there is one thing I have learned and that is fear can paralyze and torment one's faith.

I am going to use David as an example of how God anoints us for accomplishing His mission. Every day is a new day for lessons to be learned through our Father. All he ask for is not just myself but for you to have faith. See David did not weight the risk of failure (death) because his faith was resting totally in God. David put his complete trust in God that he would slain Goliath. Since the day I was baptized and accepted Jesus as my savior I have been in training with the Lord on how to see the tactics of the enemy going around and instilling fear in God's children. But even those of us who are not babies of the word can fall into one of many traps that 0will drop everything when I cry for the need of prayer. The one thing that I have trouble with is when I am vulnerable, weak and fearful I will not ask soon enough for prayer so therefore I fall prey to the enemies trap. That is what has happen these past few months. I, yes I did not seek His wisdom, mercy, grace and more before I stepped out into doing what I thought was best. So by not practicing what He has taught me especially about self discipline and love I have nose dived into a state of depression which for me I have not experienced for over 20 years and am now clawing my way up out of the pit. So to finish today's blog I am happy to say that I am walking uprightly before God and although it may be setting the stage for a wasp
Love you Dad
