Episode 222


Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

Colossians 3:2


Happy Tuesday, Friends!


Last week I had asked for any suggestions for an upcoming series, and a few of you reached out asking for prayer on mindfulness, anxiety, and depression. I wanted to take time today to look to scripture for strength when it comes to these things.


This verse is asking us to set our minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.


So if you struggle with anxiety or the feeling of being unable to ground yourself, hold onto the following list.


Things that are from above:



Unconditional Love


His promise to protect you

His strength

Things that are from the earth

The feeling of inadequacy

The feeling of being late or behind in life




I hope you take time today to focus on that which is good and Holy—that which is love and light. 



Father God, we ask you to heal us from the anxiety, heal us from the depression. Help us in knowing that you have created us to be whole and complete. We look to the things that are above and not of this world for the strength to get by each and every day. Help us in casting our worries onto you. Help us in taking time each day to find your everlasting presence. We thank you for today, thank you for this week. We love you with everything in us, Amen and 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.
