[bl]E[/bl]ating primarily raw foods is surprisingly satisfying. I’ve been blending fruits and vegetables to make smoothies, snacking on nuts, seeds and dried fruit, and drinking carrot juice. If it sounds freakishly healthy, that’s because it is! This living food is sustaining me through these days of Lent, as I consider Jesus – his life giving, life receiving, life producing death and resurrection.
Yesterday I sent a text to my dear friend. She also is keeping it raw – seeking Jesus as she envisions new ways of living and relating as a family. I’m so thankful for the way we are able to journey together. As we spoke about our new way of eating, we both admitted we were failing to drink enough water.
Last night I sent her a text: If you think of it, whenever you drink water text me and I’ll do the same. That way we can remind each other to hydrate!
That’s a wonderful notion, really.
Remind one another to hydrate.
When you drink from the only source that truly satisfies your thirst, let me know so I am reminded to do the same.
We all need hydration. Daily trips to the well. To be an environment of grace, we must take from the wellspring of grace given to us, that we may offer an overflowing cup to others.
Drink from his Word. Be satisfied by his provisions. Fill your cup with thanksgiving. Bring praise to your lips.
And when you do these life giving habits, remind me. Remind others in your life that daily hydration is absolutely necessary for faithful living.
