EPISODE 1

TODAY’S READING:

As a prisoner of the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

Ephesians 4:1

If you’ve been reading along with me since October, I genuinely want to thank you. For those of you that have joined along the way, I also want to send you my sincerest love. When I wrote these emails, I was looking to just share my devotional time with you. But, quickly, I saw these emails take a special place in my heart, and I decided to continue to lean in and listen to what the Lord was asking me to do. After a few people came to me with the same word, it was clear… God was asking me to make these devotionals available in an Audio version.  

I took the better month of April and all of May to flesh out what this would look like – so thank you for your patience while I have been absent from writing. I am so excited to announce that today I have officially launched the My Morning Devotional podcast. Now you can get your 5 minutes Daily Dose of Heaven via email, podcast, or on my website. You can also follow the Instagram account to get a sprinkle of light on your feed. 

Without further ado, let’s get to the reason we are all here… let’s get ready to absorb what the Lord has prepared for us today. 

I consider myself a prisoner of the Lord, and whether or not you consider yourself to be one, I have the same urge for you that Paul has for the people he is addressing in this verse. Live a life worthy of the calling. Not just the calling of being a doctor, lawyer, content creator, writer, mother, father, fill in the blank. No, I am talking about the calling of being a Christian. 

Live your life accordingly. Live the kind of life that requires a commitment to loving others, despite their shortcomings. Live a life that requires a commitment to forgiving others, not for their sake but for yours. Live a life that serves others, don’t just live for yourself. But ultimately, live a life of freedom. Why? Because what Jesus did for us 2,000+ years ago was free us from fear and death. He gave us the chance to live a life of everlasting love and faith. All he asked was for us to give others the same kind of love and respect. 

Simply put, we are blessed so that we can be a blessing. We were saved so that we can serve. You may very well be on the other side of someone’s current valley. But, if you live a life full of joy, if you live a life worthy of the calling, you might be the very strength someone needs to make it through the day. So I hope you go about your day today full of joy—the kind of joy only Jesus can provide. I hope you spread love faster than any virus can spread, and I hope when people see you, they truly see Him. 

 

PRAYER

Jesus, we thank you for a beautiful day and a new month. Let this new day, new week, new month, and new season bring about new blessings for myself and for {{ subscriber.firstName | default(‘my friends’) }}. We devote to you today to live a life full of joy, full of faith, full of love, and full of freedom. We devote ourselves to living a life worthy of the calling—the calling of being a child of God, a child of the highest. We continue to pray over those who continue to fight against COVID-19, and we pray for protection and healing as our nation begins to open up. We thank you for the comfort you bring us. In your mighty name, we pray, Amen!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
