“Learning to combat this infection can be the difference between a healthy soul and a broken one.”

Spiritual dehydration can creep into our lives in many ways, but learning to combat this infection can be the difference between a healthy soul and a broken one.

1. Do away with comparison.

Don’t compare your inch to someone else’s mile. Everyone is on their own spiritual journey, and the reality is that none of us are going to be on the exact same page or chapter. We’re all going through different things, experiencing God in different ways and trying to wrestle through different questions. Do away with comparison, as it will do nothing but get you down and make you feel inferior compared to the accomplishments of others. Comparison is a game you will never win at.

It’s not fair to compare you own life with that of someone else. All of us were uniquely made for a different purpose and to experience different things. I’ll be honest in admitting that I constantly find myself comparing the accomplishments of others to my own. It’s not healthy, nor does it help my current spiritual journey either. Human nature yearns for the approval of others, and much of that is found within the weaving of comparison. We compare in hopes of being better, in turn making us feel better about ourselves. Regardless of what side we’re on, comparison is never healthy nor does it help progress our spiritual well-being. Do away with comparison.

2. Stop trying to do things on your own.

Spiritual dehydration can take root in our lives in many different ways, but one of the most common is when we try to do this whole God-thing on our own. You know, as if we’ve got it all under control. The beauty of God is that not only is he a spiritual companion, but he is the creator of companionship itself. Humble yourself completely, drop the facade of perfection and allow God to intervene in every facet of your life. Doing so will completely revolutionize your heart, soul and spiritual awareness.

When we give God the room he deserves, our souls will be refreshed and our hearts will flow with his presence. We were created for the partnership of God. We were created to do life hand-in-hand with the one who created us in his image.

3. Don’t allow a routine to become mundane.

There is nothing wrong with having a routine. In fact, I’d encourage you to make prayer, reading your bible and experiencing times of worship something you do habitually. What you don’t want to do is allow these things to become a mundane routine, something you do just for the sake of doing. Prayer must be done with intention, studying your Bible must be done with tenacity and worship must be done with passion.

When a routine becomes stale and mediocre, it’s time to do away with it and recalibrate your direction. Routines are great because they form habits, you just need to make sure those habits don’t become dry and without purpose.

4. Make prayer a priority, not a last resort.

Prayer is spiritual dehydration’s biggest enemy. When we truly discover the importance of prayer, we will see that it not only replenishes the soul but also keeps us in tune with the current condition of our heart and mind. Prayer is common among those who are hurting and in quarrelsome situations, but one must not allow allow prayer to become nothing more than a last resort. Pray first.

Make prayer a priority, a part of your life and something that is interwoven into the inner-being of your character. You my friend are destined to be a prayer warrior. Combat spiritual dehydration with the awe-inspiring communication God has so graciously given us through the art of prayer. Share your feelings, your burdens and pains. Share your frustrations, your joy and your discontent. Share until you cannot share anymore.

5. Equip yourself with spiritual mentors.

It’s always a good idea to have people in your life that you’ve given permission to keep you accountable, call you out when you do something idiotic and keep you on track with your spiritual journey. Whether it be in person, over the phone or even Skype, give permission to men and women who are wiser than you to speak life into you.

Humble yourself, learn from their direction and allow your heart to be guided by those God has put before you. Your spiritual welfare depends on constant evaluation and refining.

In restoring you spiritual life, you must surrender everything to the Lord. Let his ways go after your life. In any circumstances, always come to him, meaning through ups and downs of your everyday life. Don't come to him, only when you're in pain. You must thank him for everything that he did to your life. Always remember to honor him and make disciples.

If physical dehydration is possible, then spiritual dehydration also do exist. We need to maintain the balance and harmony of being yourself. We all need to give some time with our own self because that's the only way of having a healthy soul. I really admire how you listed some of your tips and advices for us to follow and apply in our everyday lives. I would definitely take note on these. Thank you so much for sharing this very worth reading article with us.

Spiritual dehydration is just like the normal dehydration that people go through. In our body, we need to always drink water because if not, we will be dehydrated and later on, die. However, it is not only through our body that we can die. We can also die through our spirit. People neglect the fact that we need not only to feed our body but also our spirit. The question you may be asking is, “How do we feed our spirit?”. That's simple. We feed our spirit through different ways depending on our satisfaction. For instance, I feed my spirit by going to the Church and talking to God. It's one way of making sure that I am keeping Jesus Christ up to date with what's happening in my life. Other people feed their spirit by doing what they love like reading a book, watching a Broadway play, or even as simple as baking cookies. It all depends on what makes your spirit light up.

I personally believe that there is no other cure for sickness as higher as prayers. God really moves in mysterious ways, he has different ways on how he connects people, he has his own way of making us feel loved. It does not mean that if you pray less, God will also give you less, it doesn't work that way. We should not compare ourselves from other people, we are very unique in our own ways, God is not making you experience the same thing he does to others, we have a different purpose in life and he wanted to us to learn by making us experience different things.

Thank you for posting this blog! I feel spiritually dehydrated for how long I can remember, and this blog made me realize to change it. I feel empty at most times, I don't know if I am depressed, miserable, or anything. I don't know, but I always feel down and incomplete. I just feel emotionally and spiritually drained. This article will surely help me restore my inner problems. It would probably also change my lifestyle, and my relationship with people.
