Episode 251


When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.” 

Genesis 4:12


A learning lesson, don’t sacrifice the short-term pleasure for long-term gain.


Picking up where we left off last week, reading on the story of Caine and Abel. This verse was God’s punishment to Caine in response to him killing his brother.


When I read it at first, I was reminded of the harvest we reap when we sow in the win. And like this verse says, if we work the ground in sin, it will no longer yield crops.


More so, I have had a rough weekend with the business. I am going on day 15 of working on my feet, and I am having growing pains adjusting to my new schedule. You can probably hear it in my voice, but I am tired, and I’ve spent the last few hours crying.


The thought of quitting has passed my mind a few times, but God works perfectly, and this story aligns exactly with the emotions I am feeling. I have to remember to control these emotions, not to give in to impulse but instead trust Him through the process.


In the same way, we can all apply this for the day ahead of us. Let us not act on impulse; let us rationally deal with our emotions and surrender what we don’t have control over. 



Father God, thank you for another beautiful week. Thank you for the strength to keep going even when we hit roadblocks. We ask that you give us the patience to be rational and strong when dealing with our emotions. Let us not give in to them so quickly. We are a community that is sowing good seeds and yielding beautiful crops. Thank you for everything. It is in your son’s Holy 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.
