Episode 82


You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.

Psalm 65:11


Even the hard pathways overflow with abundance. 

Isn’t this verse beautiful?  


This year has been tough on many; I said it yesterday. But I truly believe there is abundance everywhere we look. We just have to have faith to see it. 


On Friday, I celebrated Rosh Hosanna with my Roommate. She and her mom put together beautiful Jewish celebrations, and this past weekend, we celebrated the Jewish New Year.


I truly believe this year was the year of pruning leaves and getting us ready for our next chapter. But that doesn’t mean that in the here and now, you can’t find blessings all around you. So I urge you, refuse to be moved by how you feel and start looking for God’s blessings in your life. 


If you can’t name any, I will help you start your list. 


-The phone/device you are reading and listening to this

-The place (if it’s your car or home or office) that you are currently sitting in

-The plenty or little family that surrounds you

-The food you are going to eat today

-The home you live in 

-The last promotion you got. The last job you got. The business you started, or the last degree you earned, The last big achievement in your life – those are all blessings. 


Beyond those, we must remember that even in hard pathways, there is an overflow of abundance. Meaning no matter what season you are in. No matter if you are sick or someone you love is sick, God is good, and if you look, you will see an overflow of abundance.


We all have testimonies of God’s grace. So as you look at this year, be understanding that all things work for good and try to embrace all of the blessings and lessons God is trying to give you. 



Jesus, thank you for the words when I don’t have any. I pray that we all see your hand at work in our lives. We pray you to continue to move mountains and fight our battles. We will honor you with everything we have. It is all for your glory. Lord bless these next few months. We are ready to celebrate with those we love. We are praying for the ability to embrace our loved ones this Holiday season. It is in your mighty name that 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!


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.
