Episode 94


But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.”

1 Peter 3:14


Life is hard. It’s okay to say that out loud. 


This world is full of temptation. Not just sexual temptation. No, I am talking about all kinds of temptation. 


Like indulging and over eating, or being greedy with your money, maybe it’s the temptation of gossip whenever it presents itself, or even the will to be lazy at all given moments. 


Believe it or not, these are all forms of temptation, designed to move you further away from the life you were intended to read. 


This verse says even if you suffer for what is right, you are blessed, and that statement is so true. We might quote on quote suffer when we have to say no to those habits or walk away from those people, but the truth is every time we do that, we walk one step closer to the promises of God. 


So let me encourage you as you go about your day today. Stand your ground. Live life the way God intended you to live it. The more you do so, the more you will take notice of your life-changing all around you. 


Every single day is an opportunity to align yourself closer to the will of God. To the way of every lasting life. When I put it like that, our way of life sounds straight out of a fairy tale – but after all – this whole life is about God’s never-ending quest for your heart. 



Heavenly Father, we give our life over to you. Every day we are tempted with something new, and we ask for the strength to deny such things. At the moment, it can be hard, but we know as we do that we are one step closer to living the life you’ve intended us to live. Help us stay in alignment with your goals for us. We want to live this life with one intention, to get closer to you every single day. With all that we are, we pray in your mighty name, 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.
