I received short notice late last night that the water company will temporarily shut my water off today. They are working on the water mains into two buildings on my block. One building is older and is being renovated. The other is a thirty-three-storey highrise under construction.
In the past, the city’s water company has caused more than one oopsie in the neighbourhood, leaving us without water for a couple of days.
As a result of that notice, I sprung into action this morning. My bathtub is filled, and I have about 8 gallons of drinkable water for meal prep and clean-up. I also have a thermos full of piping hot tea for the day, and my greens drink awaits me in the fridge. I just need to give it a good shake when I am ready for it.
I also store a gallon of water in my storage room for emergencies. I must confess I rarely refresh that jug as I only use it in dire emergencies. Have you ever tasted stale water? I have. It’s unappealing, to say the least. Water is not meant to be stored for long periods of time without access to some source of oxygenation.
Our souls and spirits will not stay well hydrated by drinking God’s goodness only once in a while. Yesterday’s supply will not hold us over for today. Thank God that His living water never runs out. Spring up oh well within my soul! His mercies are new every morning. Drink deep of His goodness of His ever-flowing, every moving Spring of Life today and every day.
Lamentations 3:22-23 – “The Lord’s loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.”
John 4:14 -“Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never be thirsty; but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.”
