What are you looking at today? Where is your focus of attention? What do you “binge watch”? The answer is found in your feelings.
Someone put it this way…
(1) If you focus on YOURSELF, you will become DEPRESSED.
(2) If you focus on the WORLD, you will become DISTRESSED.
(3) If you focus on JESUS, you will be at REST.
Being depressed and distressed is, has always been, and always will be the result of one’s misplaced focus.
It may also be that you just feel “empty” and not truly fulfilled.
If you are a Believer, you have the Holy Spirit’s ever-flowing stream of living water within you. The thirst of being distressed and depressed is not the kind of life you want, and it’s certainly not God’s will.
The promise of “never thirsting again” (John 4) is to those who drink and keep on drinking of the living water.
Are you dehydrated? Are you drinking enough water of life to keep you hydrated with peace, confidence, and joy?
It’s not complicated. It’s merely a shift of attention. The Holy Spirit is there to meet your need. Look to Him. Acknowledge Him. Drink.deeply.now. He will quench your thirst, as you connect to the living water that is already yours for the drinking.
