Episode 64

TODAY’S READING:

You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me!

Since your love for me is constant and endless,

I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me!

Psalm 138:8

 

Happy Thursday! 

 

I hope you’ve had a blessed week! Today I have a question for you all … 

 

When was the last time you made a pinky promise? A few weeks ago, a close friend of mine had me over to see her kids. They call me Tia Ali! We were playing, and I had to leave for a moment, but I promised them I would come back to play within 5 minutes. But Julia made me pinky promise that I would come back to finish the game we had started. 

 

I came back, we finished the game, and these are memories I will treasure forever. 

 

When I read this verse, it reminded me of that day. This innocent child asking me to promise I would come back to play with her. She made me a pinky promise. 

 

How many of us know you can’t go back on a pinky promise? It’s a pinky promise! You literally promise someone else that they can count on you! It’s easier for us to give up on a promise we made ourselves than to let down a friend. – But that is a devotional for another time. But have you ever asked God for a promise? 

 

I feel like that’s what we do when we start a new venture or a new chapter in our lives. “Hey Lord, this is what you want me to do, right? Great! I just paid for the logo… I’m working on the website… pinky, promise me this is going to work.” 

 

The same thing can be said about having children. You both pray, and you ask God to pinky promise you that He is going to deliver what He promised. 

 

We can rest assured that His love for us is constant and endless. He promises to finishes all of the good things He’s begun in us. It makes me excited to enter new chapters. It means the outcome may not be exactly how you may imagine, but it’s definitely an outcome God intended for us long ago. 

 

PRAYER

Lord, thank you for the pinky promise. The promise that all good works begin and end with you. We are a vessel. Use our hands to do what you’ve intended us to do. Empower all mothers and fathers to instill love into the next generation. Use our teachers to shape the minds of many. Use our doctors and nurses and those in the medical industry to heal the sick and the broken. Use your entrepreneurs to boost the economy and give new families stable incomes through positions with their businesses. Use your lawyers to demand justice in this unjust world. Use the creators of this world to capture moments, invoke emotion in others, and leave your fingerprints in the form of art.  Use your people. We are here to serve you. We love you with everything in 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.
