What's Your Faucet Saying?


Have you ever tried to concentrate on something important and you couldn't . . . because of a dripping faucet? Drip. Drip. Drip. It's enough to drive a person nuts!
      Instead of allowing a dripping faucet to annoy us, maybe we should let it teach us something. Think about it:  A dripping faucet is saying, "Something's not right here. There's a leak that needs fixing." A dripping faucet is a signal that something's wrong. Most of us can't relax during the drip, because we know there's something to be fixed, or we worry about the water that's being wasted.
     In the same way, God sometimes allow "dripping faucets" in our lives to signal us that something is spiritually off-center. We often try to ignore those spiritual signals by cranking the volume of our CD player or flipping through a variety of channels on our TV. But the truth is, a dripping faucet won't quit on its own. We actually have to get up and do something about it.
       Is god trying to signal you that something is wrong in your life? If so, listen to the drip and be willing to do whatever it takes to fix it. Is there a wall in one of your relationships? Have you not forgiven someone who hurt you? Has it become too easy to be critical, negative and to make remarks that cause dissension among those around you? Are you jealous of a friend who got what you had your heart set on? Have you become bitter because someone rejected you?
      Perhaps God is saying through your broken heart, "This isn't right, let's fix it."
      Or through critical, negative spirit, maybe God is saying, "This can no longer continue. I love you too much to allow you to remain this way."
      Could God be trying to speak through your jealousy ... "Instead of being insecure about someone else has, will you refocus your attention on me? I dream BIG dreams for you!"
      A dripping faucet won't fix itself. But our all-powerful, all-knowing, ever-present God can even masquerade as a Master Plumber. And he can provide exactly what you need to stop the leak.

"Leaks? No problem."

 Ask God to make you aware of any dripping faucets in your life that need to be fixed.

  2. It's as you said, Susan. When you started hearing that dripping sound, that should be your signal that there is a problem in your faucet. However, little as the drops may be, some tend to ignore it, which then makes the little problem grow into a bigger one. With everything we do, it's best if we tend to the matter the moment we notice that something's wrong. Darryl Iorio
