Hydrate your soul

Don’t deny your anger.

Don’t dismiss your loneliness.

Your restless spirit.

Your sense of dread.

Don’t let your heart shrink into a raisin.

Hydrate your soul.

Heed your thirst!

Not everything you put to your lips will help your thirst.

The arms of forbidden love may satisfy for a time, but only for a time.

Eighty-hour workweeks grant a sense of fulfillment, but never remove the thirst.

Religion pacifies but never satisfies.  Church activities may hide a thirst, but only Christ quenches it.

Drink him.  And drink of him often!

Don’t you need regular sips from God’s reservoir?

I do.

I step to the underground spring of God and receive anew his work for my sin and death,

the energy of his Spirit, his lordship, and his love.

Receive Christ’s work on the cross, the energy of His Spirit.

His unending, unfailing love.

Drink deeply–and drink often!

Jesus said, “…he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”  John 6:35
