For this month I chose the Theme:
Water and Nourishment.
We know all too well the importance and benefits of water and staying hydrated. We even know how much water intake per day is necessary. I once joined a Herbalife challenge and one of our challenges was drinking 2 Litres of water per day. I must admit…never got to that before but in the challenge, it worked well. I achieved my weight loss goals per week, my complexion got better and I had lots of energy.
The importance of being hydrated is to:
– regulate body temperature
– keep joints lubricated, prevent infections
– deliver nutrients to cells and keep organs functioning properly.
Although there are many more to mention, I would rather want to focus on the importance of being spiritually hydrated.
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1Thessalonisence 5:23)
A Scriptural Doodle Challenge
The photo beneath was sent to me by my daughter on my birthday and as I am a visual learner immediately saw a challenge to create my version based on John 4, the Samaritan woman.
The Samaritan woman came to fetch water and found Jesus at the well. She certainly had her share of life’s dehydration.
- She was rejected many times
- She became an outcast due to her sinful lifestyle
- Ancestral worship
- Her soul thirst for a Messiah
At the well, a shift took place, as Jesus sat down and explained to her the importance of having access to an eternal source of water, Himself. An exchange between Jesus and the woman took place as she exchanges the ordinary with the eternal water, the Word of God. By listening to His teaching an inflow of living waters of God in her barren land took place.
How to stay hydrated with God’s word.
- Exchange your ways with God’s ways and embrace it
- Study and read scripture
- Listen to the Word of God
- Declare the word of God
- Obey His word
- Act on His word
- Take time to memorize scripture
- Doodle through Scripture
- Prayer journaling
“Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”(John 4:10)
”If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! He who believes in Me as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow springs and rivers of living water” (John 7:37,38).
