Episode 355


But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.

James 5:12


Tomorrow is the big day!! Today we get to do all have breakfast together and bask in their relationship up to this point. Two individuals are joining together in a holy union in front of God.


I feel so blessed to be witnessing my sister walk through this season of her life. I know she’s going to be a beautiful bride.


Today I pray we reflect on the unions and commitments we’ve made in our lives. Maybe you’re married, and this is a time to remember the vows you took. Maybe you made a promise to yourself to finish your degree. Maybe you made a promise to commit to your health.


A vow is a vow; when you say yes, it’s a yes, and when you say no, it’s a no. It doesn’t matter if it is shared your verbal commitment with another person or not, so we aren’t only talking about marriage here. I want us to remember what we have committed to under His eyes.


The promises we give Him are important. They mean something. They are backed with blessing.


So I encourage us all to revisit, reflect, and recommit where we have called us to. 



Lord, we take a moment to pray for my sister and her marriage. We pray for a long beautiful life together; we pray for peace, prosperity, and protection over the Rodriguez household. Lord, we pray together for the things we’ve promised to you. We’ve all made our vows, all in different areas of our lives, and today, we recommit where we may have fallen so that we do not come near condemnation but closer to your kingdom and the freedom you give us. We love you with our whole hearts, 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.
