Do I hafta?

I don’t want to do this. Whatever this day has in store. I want to finish my coffee, stay in my Jammie’s and go back to bed and sleep. Wake me when the world is set right again.

The same problems I had yesterday are waiting for me today, I didn’t have the answers then and I didn’t get them in my sleep.

But I did win a can of cat food.

We don’t have a cat.

(From Safeway, not in my sleep).

So I trudge on with the same equipment I had yesterday, and most of the same unsolved mysteries and the unanswered challenges plus there’s new ones for today.

I’m feeling dried up, ill prepared and useless.

Then I read this:

“On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”[c] 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.”

I remember that I am not alone, not left abandoned. So I pray this.

Jesus I need to be refreshed, renewed and strengthened. I have challenges that I don’t have answers for. Jesus help me. Fill me with living water. I need enough for myself and for those around me.

Then I go on with my day and see what God can do with this dried up husk. I may be a dried up husk but I’m Gods dried up husk.

Remember what he did with 5 loaves and 2 fish?

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
