On a hot Summer day how much water does it take to revive your body? Experts tell us that in order to stay properly hydrated our bodies need approximately 1/2 liter of water an hour. In the case of high heat or strenuous exercise, the need increases to 1 liter of water an hour!
Sitting on the beach with my grandbabies, we can get easily distracted and caught up in our “beach” activities and forget to hydrate! Just last week this happened to me! I was having a blast being “Mamma!” We we’re running, playing, laughing and having a great time together. I made sure they were drinking water, but neglected to keep myself properly hydrated. Our day was coming to an end, the sun was beginning to set, and I found myself dizzy, nauseated and unsure of the reason. I jumped to the conclusion of not enough protein in my diet that day, but soon after quickly realized it was dehydration. It nearly knocked me off my feet. To think that a few sips of water consistently throughout my day would have avoided the entire issue, was down right embarrassing!
How frequently do I allow the distractions and commitments and yes, even the activity of my day, keep me from dehydrating my spirit with God’s Law?
Psalm 19:7 “The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul.”
Hydration revives us inside and out!
Stay hydrated in The Law of The Lord, it revives both body and spirit!
So, “CHEERS” to staying hydrated this Summer! Glasses up, and Bibles open!
See you here, healthy and hydrated next week as July moves on!
