Water || July 29, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer
Without clean water for to drink
Without a reservoir or sink
Without this water in our blood
Without an occasional flood
Without a natural thirst when dry
Without a bottle of it nearby
Without the fluid shaping cells
Without the desert water wells
What are we but lifeless dust
If there’s no water of life to trust?
What are we if we cannot share?
Relieve the thirst of any there
Be it an animal, plant, or man
We should offer water if we can
O Lord Thou art living waters and their essence and taste. Thank you for providing the drama of water to clouds to rain to bodily cells. Remove my selfishness that I may share your life-giving gifts. Increase my watery tears and compassion that I may feel what another feels and serve Thee with adoration.
