And then you will prosper
Joshua 1:8 – Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
I have this mini rose bush that sits on my windowsill. It has a cute pot, with a light blue ribbon perfectly tied into a bow. It looks really nice, matching my light blue room perfectly. Well, it did until it started dying. I would sometimes (sometimes…) go a few days forgetting to water it – and it showed. The perfect little green leaves started to darken, until they turned crispy and light brown. The little white roses sank their heads until they eventually dropped off entirely.
My mini rose bush that was once so happy and full of life slowly started to sadden, wither and die.
One day I decided to really commit to watering and caring for my mini rose bush. I picked out the little brown leaves and threw out the withered rose buds. I gave it water every single day. As the days and weeks went by, my rose bush slowly started to perk up. It became greener and grew bigger. I began to see new buds form, getting ready to burst open. And when they did, they were no longer white but a beautiful light pink! The mini rose bush has started to bloom such a beautiful colour that I didn’t even know it was capable of.
Are you watering yourself with The Living Water every day? Are you quenching the thirst within your heart and soul?
I promise, just like my mini rose bush, when you commit to caring for your self spiritually on a daily basis, you will watch your life expand before your eyes. You’ll be doing things and saying things you didn’t even know you were capable of.
