Hunger and Thirst

There was this one time when I went for a few days without food. Well, I ate one or two candies during that time, but I don't consider that food. (By the way, this was not by choice.)
And I got hungry! Actually, I wasn't as hungry as I was drained. I grew more tired as the time went on. In addition, I got cranky and self-absorbed because I was trying so hard *not* to focus on the fact that I needed food. Being soaked in the rain did not help matters any. You could just say that I got really emotional - angsty for a while, then weepy and depressed. It was not a pretty sight. In fact, I was pathetic and miserable to the point that people did not recognize me! I was not myself!

Well, I learned a little about spiritual food today. I learned that three things have been called spiritual food: the word of God, the work of God, and the son of God. If I don't take these, then I will be all angsty and weak in spirit like I was in body. And if I don't take these, how can I be myself, the creation I am intended to be? I am no accident. If I want to care for my body, then why am I so lazy that I neglect my spirit?

So I guess Christians are prescribed to a healthy balanced diet. :)

And what shall I drink?
What other than that which will flow from the New Jerusalem in the day of the Lord? What other than that which is given by the Father and the Son? It is offered just as it was to that Samaritan woman.

John 7:37-39
"On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified."

Jeremiah 2:13
"My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water."
