A few days ago I went out for a 10 mile jog in the middle of the day. It was in the upper 90’s and I didn’t go with any water. It was right along the DFW airport along an abandoned road – it was so awesome because the planes were coming right at me and landing right over the fence. I love long runs as it gives me time to reflect, be thankful, and find myself.
After the midway point my mouth was dry, my bald head was burned from no cap, and my upper arms were on fire from no sunscreen. I said a little prayer, “God it would be so awesome if you supply some water right now”. Hey there was one time a year ago I was jogging and about to pass out – I ran upon a Gatorade bottle unopened. It was blazing hot but I drank it anyway because I was so thirsty and it was wet. Anyway as I jogged up over a hill this business complex had sprinklers going. Ahh- I dove head first and panted like a dog. It was so refreshing. I really didn’t know how thirsty I had become until I took a drink!
i usually learn things while jogging. I learned two things. God provides in the most simplest ways and answers even prayers that we think are small. The other? There’s a lot of people out there dying of spiritual thirst and don’t realize how dry they are. I am believing that when The Well launches in February of next year they will be able to get a big gulp of living water! Cool part – drinks are on us!
