Sis Water You!...Spiritually 🕊️💦

As we sum up this month's focus on watering self, our final topic, and most important, will cover the necessity of spiritual watering. Have you ever been in a space where you have your physical routine together, emotionally you are doing the work, and mentally you are consistent with therapy, but you still feel a void. There's a longing in your being that's looking for purpose. No matter how much effort you put forth to fill that void with people, practices, and places, you're still unfulfilled. As you keep moving forward in life, you'll find yourself agreeing with King Solomon saying "everything is meaningless" if you lack the proper perspective on exactly how to fill that void.


We as people have an innate desire to connect with something, to worship something. Over the decades anthropologists have studied and estimate at least 18,000 different gods, goddesses, and various animals or objects have been worshipped by humans. To look at it in modern terms, whatever has most of your attention and devotion becomes what you worship (money, food, social media, your appearance, etc.). We use these unfruitful things to fill us only to find ourselves unsatisfied and longing for more. The longer we engage with unfruitful things our lives begin to reflect the drought we are existing in. We are no longer as productive as we used to be, and if we are productive, it's usually busy work, our creativity has decreased, our motivation to do more has been replaced with complacently, and our standard of excellence has dropped to mediocracy. You need a spiritual downpour!


In the Book of Ecclesiastes King Solomon repeats that everything is meaningless without the proper focus on God. Here is a king known for wisdom, one who had experienced the delicacies of life, revealing the necessity of reverencing and honoring God in a frustrating and busy world. Despite all this king had, they mattered not apart from God. This is how spiritual watering occurs, intimacy with God. During the month of November we did a series I encourage you to revisit called Spiritual Refreshment. The series was filled with practical ways to begin and grow a relationship with God. Just like any other relationship, time is key to get familiar with who you are connecting with.


Whether you believe in an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent God or not, one thing stands true, we are created to worship something. What we choose to worship will either water us or deplete us. While we are on this journey called life holistic well-being involves the body, soul, and spirit as a whole. Make sure you are watering yourself accordingly.


When all has been heard, the end of the matter is: fear God [worship Him with awe-filled reverence, knowing that He is almighty God] and keep His commandments, for this applies to every person. Ecclesiastes 12:13 AMP
