Advent Word/Day 19
Everyone knows that the best thing to drink when you are thirsty is plain old water. Sometimes I religiously keep track of my daily ounces and other times, I just try to mentally tally how much I may or may not have consumed on a given day. Then there are times where I just grab yet another diet Coke or a cup of coffee. During those times, I can tell that I have gotten off track – nothing quenches true thirst as well as water.
Similarly, there are times when I regularly do my daily devotional, write in my journal, and observe an evening/bedtime routine. And others when I simply turn on a podcast or Netflix and just zone out. But I can always tell when I haven’t quenched my thirst for meditation, prayer, and reflection.
