Remember my beautiful plants from a few weeks ago?
Here they are today:
After only a day or two away and without watering, they’ve wilted.
Some travel and circumstances have left me feeling the same. I’m tired. Tiny challenges discourage. Insignificant decisions overwhelm. Small stuff makes me sweat.
My plants and I need some Water.
“Come, everyone who thirsts,
come to the waters…” (Isaiah 55:1).
I’m pretty sure the petunias will perk up after I give them a drink. I need some rest, but I also need the spiritual refreshment of God’s Word.
How often do you read your Bible? How often do I?
Click the link above to read all of Isaiah 55 and ask questions. Who is speaking? Who is the audience? What do these words say to you personally? What else comes to mind as you meditate on this passage? Don’t simply read it. Drink it and let fill you.
Time to water my plants. And yes, they’ll probably need more water tomorrow. That’s okay–so will I.
Lord, refresh and nourish our wilted spirits with Your Word. Amen.
