Recently, I watched a YouTube documentary video titled, Water: The Great Mystery. That program was strikingly interesting. In one part, two bowls of water were placed in front of a dog. The dog chose the spring water, the better of the water choices. I was like, “Wow, how did the dog know?!”

Largely, before I viewed that water documentary, I’d taken water for granted. The program taught of many benefits of water — the power of water — the memory of water — the “personality” of water, etc.

In the very beginning of the bible, water is mentioned in Genesis 1:2 – KJV, “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” In the book of Kings, Naaman dipped in the water of Jordan and was healed of leprosy. 2 Kings 5:14 – KJV, “Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.” In the New Testament, Jesus sat in a boat in the water and taught. He turned water into wine. He walked on water. Water baptism was a key ingredient mentioned in the New Testament.

Our bodies are composed of about 60% water some of which is contained in our brains. Clearly, water is vital to our health and mental well-being. We are indeed connected to it because it lives inside of us. How often, though, do we take that essential ingredient for granted? Frequently, some people don’t consume enough water — choosing rather to excessively select sugary drinks to insert in their bodies — bodies that are designed with water as a major ingredient. There are no suitable substitutes for adequate water consumption for the health of our minds and bodies — yet so many folks neglect it and its vital properties. Yep, the best liquid is definitely H2O.

God has arranged it so that water is immensely useful in manifold ways. It has currents, energies, and vibrations. We have it in rivers, streams, oceans, seas, and ponds, among many other places. God sees fit to allow the water of raindrops to fall to help us in growth of food, as well as the other assorted ways that water benefits all of creation. We drink it, we wash with it, we cook with it, we irrigate with it, we work with it, we play with it — the list goes on.

I’m so thankful to God for water and for the many other countless gifts bestowed upon us by our awesome Creator.

After watching the subject YouTube documentary, I have an increased appreciation for water, its valuable flow and vitally meaningful actions.
