Want to see kids have fun? Just add water! Do you want to cultivate romance? Add a walk by a wooded stream or sandy beach. There are those who love the wilds of the desert but most people prefer a vacation or picnic outlined by water.
I shiver with longing when I drive by an ocean, lake or river. I desire water like a fish! Water sooths and invigorates, calms and activates! How refreshing to splash, dive and swim in the wet! Let me paddle or sail over it, ski upon it or simply dangle my feet in it!
Are you a water baby, simply delighting to be around the water? Have you taken a boat cruise, gone white water rafting or tubed behind a speed boat? What fun! Have you gone deep sea fishing? Don’t you love it! We can tell that God loves H2O. He made so much of it! He gave birth to water.
“Does the rain have a father?
Who fathers the drops of dew?
From whose womb comes the ice?
Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens
when the waters become hard as stone,
when the surface of the deep is frozen?” (Job 38:28-30)
One of the first things you see in Scripture is Gods Spirit reverberating and resonating over the waters. There was a miraculous induction of purpose into the deep. As the Spirit hummed, and strummed, and vibrated things came alive! “Spirit” and “water” are linked in scripture. Liquid language is used to describe the Spirit” raining” down or being “poured” out.
Please, add the water that the fun and romance may begin!
