200 Ounces Of Water Later
Well, it was certainly another eventful Sunday at Refuge Church. I woke up excited to share another God led message. I figured the extra hour of sleep would give me an extra boost. Instead, after I took my morning medication I was quickly battling a major fog. I felt no choice but to drink something caffeinated in hopes of improving my ability to concentrate. Then, it all backfired on me.
Basically, I had the equivalent of three small cups of black coffee. No sugar or anything else I’ve recently eliminated totally from my daily diet. During the first service the entire room was spinning in my eyes. Unfortunately, my eyes have not adjusted well to wearing my new progressive bifocals. Honestly, nothing was clear all morning as I felt like a blind mind stuck behind some circus mirror. Experience has taught me to just keep giving my best God will do the rest.
After feeling God move mightily the first service conclude. As soon as I got ready to walk off stage my legs way. Just like they did the last time I had 3-4 cups of coffee. At best they were 25 percent as strong as usual. So, now I not only felt blind but crippled. I knew I had to drink plenty of water to clear the caffeine out of my system. Between services alone I drank well over 100 ounces of water in less than 30 minutes. I also had a little time to cry out some of the toxins that built up in my system.
After flushing my system out the next several hours my legs finally began feeling normal again. Once, again though I was reminded of how much inflammation caffeine alone can create. Overall, today I’ve drank over 200 ounces of water just to get myself to level ground. Thank God I’ve experienced another day of eating healthy and staying from all sweets. I’m just trying to do all that I can while trusting God to do all that I can’t. We all know the trial of life are constant, but the goodness of God is as well.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4
