Episode 520


And if it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Joshua 24:15

What happens when a family or a community removes God from its values? It crumbles. The enemy is quick to attack it. It becomes vulnerable.

Today I want us to focus on the people and things we have the greatest positive influence over. Our homes. Our families. 

But from everlasting to everlasting, the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children.

Psalm 103:17

We can choose to bless our children and our children’s children if we choose to walk in the way of the Lord.

There are many little g gods that are flashy and cool: social media, addictions, the media, politics. Anything can steal us from God these days. We just have to be firm in the sense that we as a people have decided that our homes will serve the Lord. 


Jesus, we thank you for this beautiful Friday. Thank you for blessings on our generations to come. Thank you for protecting those we love the most. Today we come to you in prayer, asking that you continue to give us the strength. Remind us that no matter what steals our attention, we are laser-focused on our Jesus. May no harm come over the house or our families. 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!


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.
