Just a Drop
If only a drop can extend life, imagine a full well or even a river with massive droplets held together by love,
washing you…quenching you…flooding you!
It seems like I am always running out of everything at the same time. This week my eyeliner & mascara needed extending, my liquid soap, some cleaning supplies, and I cannot even remember what else. I was just struck by sudden need to add a drop of water to stretch out the life of my products. Of course this kicked my brain in gear! It seems that I am always looking for a spiritual truth in the simplest task of life. Spend a brief moment before you read any further, pray and ask God to open the eyes and ears of your heart. I have thought deeply about each of the following examples and the Word and Spirit of God have illuminated my understanding. It is very difficult for me to adequately convey my insight, as many of the illustrations are personal. It is my prayer that God will uniquely speak directly to you through my thoughts and His Word. (You may click on the scripture references to be linked to online Bible) Don't forget that John 7 speaks of Jesus providing our source of Living Water! And in Genesis 1:2, God moved upon the face of the waters before the earth was created. Water is important to life. Scientist even agree that water is essential for the kind of delicate chemistry that makes life possible.*
Things to ponder...read them slowly...absorb the truths:
Once a drop is released, it cannot be withheld. It falls with full force and power.
Whether a drop is intentional or free falling, the impact is wide spread.
More drops in a centralized area cause filling.
Many drops combined cause greater effect.
Drops always rebound upward.
Droplets divide and merge (grow) depending on conditions and direction.
Dependent on something other than itself – it has released its control
Reacts or responds willingly
I encourage you this week to keep the word “drop” on your mind. If you are so inclined, and have time, do a little research on water droplets. You just may be showered with more spiritual truths and can add to my list! Look for ways that God drops things on your mind, in your heart, and along your path. Share those things with others. Sharing is a form of reassurance and inspiration for other believers. We are commanded to do so. Likewise, seek opportunities to drop words of encouragement, prayers, and blessings into the lives of others…whether you think they need it or not!
Finally, drop to your knees…release control and depend on God, react and respond willingly, be obedient to every request of the Lord...even the soft hush that seems out of the blue or a just fleeting thought. All of these things will, no doubt, produce positive direction in your life.
Remember that a flood begins with just one drop!
"God's love for us floods our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us." Romans 5:5
Thinking of Drops with a new perspective,

I enjoyed your inspirational thoughts on "just a drop." When I dropped to my knees after reading it, as happens many times, tears came to my eyes and erupted in praise and worship. Later, I was reminded of Ps. 56:8, "I store all your tears in a bottle." In God's sight, no tear drop is wasted, so much that He stores them, and records (spills) them in our Book of life.
