Emotional dehydration....

Have you ever felt emotionally dry? Has your life been like living in a desert? Sometimes we find ourselves in circumstances that we just don't know how to deal with. Circumstances that dehydrate us emotionally. Everything else in our lives can be going along perfectly, but at the same time we can have one area that seems to suck the life right out of us. We laugh, chat, work, even serve; but inside, a part of us is thirsting.

I've been there....I'm there a lot these days. I'm not complaining. I am actually hopeful this is just a season I must go through. My prayer is that I will not totally implode; but that in the end, I will be stronger, closer to God, and able to reach out to others.

Tonight we experienced a wonderful time of worship...It wasn't just wonderful because it made me feel good. It was great because it was like a drink of fresh, cool water to my soul. You see, I have a hope because Jesus is the Living Water. Because of Him, I don't have to thirst when I go through these desert places. He is the well that will never run dry. Tonight when I heard this song, it was as if it was the first time I had heard it. The words jumped out and grabbed me! I was reminded that although I may feel totally drained and dehydrated, Jesus is the well that will never run dry. He is always there!

  1. I love your blog...very uplifting!

    Linked over here from Facebook after seeing your name on Chuck Hill's page. I went through GCHS & Empathy with him at the same time. Eventually turned into a teacher myself and now a homeschooler & blogger as well! ;)

    God does supply, doesn't He? Sometimes, though, I forget to help myself to His goodness! :)
