Day Four- Water Your Crop
I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit. Your threshing will continue until grape harvest and the grape harvest will continue until planting, and you will eat all the food you want and live in safety in your land- Deuteronomy 26:4-5
Rain has just as much an important role in yielding a crop as the seed, soil and the plant itself. The rain is what gives the plant its life giving (and life sustaining) water it needs. It is the same with our bodies. We need to constantly refill our bodies with water do it does not become depleted. Water plays several important functions in our bodies. According to www.webmd.com, water plays helps the body in at least six different ways:
“Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids
Water Can Help Control Calories
Water Helps Energize Muscles
Water Helps Keep Skin Looking Good
Water Helps Your Kidneys
Water Helps Maintain Normal Bowel Function.”
Without water, the body becomes out of balance. Without water, our souls become out of balance, too. All crops with no water whither and eventually die. So why would we think we can live life without the water of prayer and the Word? I know of no one who has a vibrant faith that is not connecting to God on a regular basis.
If you want to have a vibrant faith, what are you doing to water your crop?

I find what you wrote very true. When I am connecting with God through prayer and reading His Word, I find strength and courage. I don't always see growth but I think that is because I am looking for one thing and He is growing me somewhere else. The thing I do notice. When I stop reading the Bible, when I stop praying, I start withering. When I read even a few verses each day, I handle life better, not perfect but better.
