Episode 317

TODAY’S READING:

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

John 6:51

 

I am tired. I am sure you are too.

 

Every day it’s something new. Haiti, with its unstable government, now gets hit with a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. Afghan people are running for their lives, clinging to our planes as we depart. Cuba is fighting for its human rights. The left agenda. The right agenda. So many agendas, and where do we stand in it all?

 

What do we say? What do we do? What do we pray?

 

Am I selfish for waking up on this Tuesday and wanting to better my career, or should I be a voice on the internet fighting to share my personal options on the world’s worries?

 

It is with a heavy heart that I look at all the brokenness and sigh. I don’t have all of the answers. But I do know, rather than wasting my breath pushing a certain political agenda, I need to be using my breath to push the only agenda.

 

Jesus is the living bread that came down from heaven. The world sucked then too. I know it couldn’t have been fun living in the Roman era. We have instructions on what to do when life is heavy. We have a book we can read. A father we can confide in. A savior we can run to. Jesus’ agenda is the only agenda I want to share.

 

He sacrificed His life so that we may have eternal life. We get to share that love with those around us. So when you don’t know what to do, run to your father, who does. Like I said, I don’t always have the answers, but I will keep running to the only one who does. 

 

PRAYER

Father, today we live the world, and we give it to you. Lord, this is your creation. This is your earth. You saw the end from the beginning and still went through with it. You still created us all. You still believed in us. We, your people, are flawed. We see the world in tears, but we know where we see brokenness; you see glory. Where we see disaster, you see opportunity. So Lord, give us a little hope today. Give us a little hope as we lean closer to you and further from the media. We love you with everything in us; it is in your 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!

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.
