Why Does It Surprise Us?

Like water,
Do we
Take Living Water
     for granted?

It's always there
Free for the taking
Whenever we want,
     but all too often
We partake
     when there's nothing else
          instead to drink.

Jesus, as well,
     never leaves
          or forsakes us,
So, why
     does it surprise us
when He allows calamity, and
     we open wide our mouths
          beneath the kitchen faucet
               and drink in every last drop?
