restless legs......restless heart

Every once in a while at night when I crawl into bed, my legs feel restless.  It's sometimes bothersome enough that I get up and walk around and try to make them better.  Because it doesn't happen all of the time, I don't really think about it much, until it happens.  It's at that moment I realize what I didn't do enough of during the day. 

For me, when I don't drink enough water throughout the day, I get that restless leg feeling.  I know that it would seem natural for most people to just drink water all throughout the day.  For me it's a chore.  It's something I have to make myself do.  In fact, I have to set out however many bottles of water I plan to drink on the counter, then drink them throughout the day.  That's the only way I will drink what I should.  I just don't think of it.  That's bad, I know.

Water seems to be the cure for my restless legs.  I think of it as "oiling" my body when I drink water! Oil sprayed onto a squeaky hinge lubricates it enough to usually stop the noise.  Drinking water "oils" my legs and keeps them from "squeaking" or feeling like I need to constantly move them.  It cures my problem, but if I know that, why don't I prevent the problem to begin with?  It doesn't make sense does it?

Many people walk around and go to bed with RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome).  Many more people walk around with RHS (Restless Heart Syndrome).  What do you mean?  You haven't ever heard of RHS?  Well, you won't find it diagnosed by any physician, except one.  Jesus, the Great Physician sees this problem on a daily basis.  He is waiting for people all over the world to make an appointment with Him.  The good thing about visiting with Him is there is never a wait, He is never booked up, and He is always on call.

Yes, RHS is rampant in the world.  It's the leading cause of death...spiritual death, that is.  But, the best part is that there is a cure for the syndrome. The physcian, Himself is the cure.  Jesus is the cure for RHS.  Call Him today, won't you? He is waiting to hear from you. He wants to cure your restless heart.

P.S. If you suffer from RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), maybe you should try drinking more water!  You can even send me the money you will be saving from a doctor's visit, if you want....I don't mind :).

But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul. 
Deuteronomy 4:29
