My Soul is Watered

Someone opens my bedside drawer and I see a glimpse of the once organized interior which has now turned into a mess. Because I was too sick and weak and couldn’t open it, let alone fix it as I used to, Tim, my 7-year old boy took advantage of that and ransacked my drawer for anything he needed – pens, memo pads – and wanted to put in, mostly his origami projects. A voice cruelly whispers in my ear, mocking, “Your drawer, just like your health and life, is desolate.”

My heart answered, “My health and my surroundings may look desolate, but my soul is being watered.”

At the beginning of December, I became sicker and weaker than I already was. My son’s birthday, later on, my husband’s, and then Christmas and New Year, came and went in a blur. Those days were excruciatingly hard and scary, to say the least. But when matters of my health settled down after many weeks, and after many agonizing, incessant prayers, my life settled into reading the Word again with fresh faith, hope, and tenacity. Although I was still sick and weak, I felt that God was drawing me closer to Him, and so, I spent the days in prayer, reading, and listening to Christian audiobooks on divine healing, especially those of Andrew Murray, and all the others in that time period.

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. (2 Cor. 4:16)

  1. Rina, that is a beautiful picture to me! (bringing tears!) of a little boy wanting to be close to his mama, ransacking her bedroom drawer! don’t let Satan deceive you….loving the “least of these” (our children) will be rewarded by the Lord! and I’m so glad to know the Lord has been faithful to “water your soul”! So glad you were able to write today! Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia

    I’ve come to appreciate the excruciating need that is exposed in myself when I face my messy drawer, my messy, unorganized, inconsistent, sinful and sick self. In great need, I’ve found a greater realization of His love for me and a greater appreciation of His grace. It seems that the bigger the need, (rather the extent that we face our need because we all have great need), the greater our capacity is to experience grace and love. I hope we can face our messy drawers more and more so that we can receive our righteousness in Jesus to a larger and larger extent. A righteousness that we can never earn. Satan loves to tell us that our messy drawers define us, but the Cross and the love demonstrated there alone defines us! Let us wear our white robes, Jesus gave it all to give them to us and thankfully we can do nothing to earn them, but simply receive them by faith. Blessings in Christ ~ Grace
