Been Through The Water?

My three your old granddaughter, Anne, loves water so much that words can hardly express it. But maybe these pictures can. She will literally walk headlong into a big wave, and not even care! She’s my very own Little Mermaid! In the summer, we all love water. To drink, play in and swim in. Do you know your brain is 70% water, and your lungs nearly 90%. Your blood is 83% water. Water is the only substance found on earth in three forms: solid, liquid, and gas. And in almost every religion, it has important symbolic properties. And our Bible has plenty to say about water. It says that Jesus is the one who came by water and blood (1 John 5-6). There are three that testify. The spirit, the water, and the blood. And, wonderfully, God tells us that when we pass through the waters, He will be with us! Are you having rough times right now? Look to the one who has been there already and wants to lead you through. Here are just a few ways God uses water in the Bible. Can you think of more? There are plenty. Post a comment and let me know. 1. God turned the bitter lake water sweet. 2. Elijah divided the water of the Jordan with his cloak. 3.God made water pour from a rock. 4. God changed the water of the Nile into blood. 5. Baptism! 6. Jesus walked on water. 7. Jesus turned water into wine. 8. Jesus washed his disciples feet with water.
