Breaking Bread For 5.28.21

Scripture

You wearied yourself by such going about, but you would not say, ‘It is hopeless.’ You found renewal of your strength, and so you did not faint.

Isaiah 57:10

Reflection

There are a lot of stories in the Bible about some cruel, selfish, evil people. We’re not going to focus on them today. Let’s instead reflect back over the stories and accounts of the men and women of the Bible that we honor. Think about them. They were not super-human creations, they were regular people who did extraordinary things, as they were touched by God’s Light. It’s not that they didn’t have fears or doubt. There was fear; but it speaks volumes about these great people because of what they did when fear stood in their face and challenged them. With confidence of God standing with them, they didn’t cower over, give in, run away, or lose hope—instead they slapped fear down to the ground, stepped on it and kept marching forward to the beat of God’s drum.

So each day as we walk, march, and make our way down life’s paths we will grow tired, but we should work towards mentally never giving up; to never believe we can’t take one more step or push one more obstacle out of our way. Let God be your strength and battery. Our end, is not for us to decide, that is God’s job. If we sabotage our lives then we cut short the blessings that were coming our way, the opportunities for growth and success, and to make a difference in other people’s lives.

So ask yourself, “Is what I’m going through really that unbearable, that I no longer have hope and faith in God to see me through?”

Prayer

Father, through ups and downs You never waver, You never fail me, You never fall short of blessing me abundantly. Through trials and tribulations, Your son, Jesus, never walked away, never gave up or gave in, instead he faced head on anything, everything, and everyone that came at him and attacked him. His trust was solely in You.

There are many accounts in the Bible of some of Your children who never gave up, never lost hope, and never stopped believing in You, Your Word, and their role in Your Kingdom Father. Each day I must claim victory in Your Name, as I begin with the blessing of being alive. I pray for daily renewal Lord. I humbly pray to You Father, and say in advance “Thank You”. Amen.

This weekend and on Monday we commemorate the lives of men and women who lost their lives due to war. Some of you have family members who entered battle zones and never returned home. Memorial Day and the weekend we begin celebrating, is more than backyard barbecues, it’s about reflecting on the sacrifice of few for many, and realizing that impact on our lives. So don’t be more focused on stuffing your belly. Honor those countless lives lost in each war and conflict the US has been involved with.

Love always,

Natasha
