In keeping with our theme this week, I thought I’d share an blog my mom wrote for Changing Seasons last year, on our Daily Bread:
Most of us know the Lord’s Prayer by heart. We can say it with meaning in 35 seconds- and if we hurry, we might get it done in 15. (Go ahead, try it!)
- When life is demanding and chaotic, asking God for daily bread strengthens and sustains me for today. In this request, what I am really saying is “Please God, give me just what I need today. Don’t let me waste my time or worries about yesterday or tomorrow. Help me see where you are working in my life today.”
- I am also learning to be satisfied with what I have today. Not concerned with what I’m lacking, not anxious of what’s to come, today, God is able to provide. Tomorrow is a day away.
- God is our Father. He knows us and He cares about our needs and concerns. He has a plan for each one of us and He wants to satisfy us.
- Each day, He will provide for our needs. It might not always be what we envision, but God is our Provider and I’m continuing to learn how to be satisfied with what HE wants for me and not necessarily always what I want from Him. One way or another, God will provide!
