Breaking Bread For 12.30.21

Scripture

“No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.” 

Luke 11:33-36

Reflection

Everything we put inside of us we reveal to the world. Choose wisely what you watch, listen to, ingest, and participate in—for you will ultimately reveal this as your truth in the future. But is it God’s Truth? Remember that even the enemy can pretend to be light. Don’t be fooled. It really is about finding that balance and seeking health and wellness with mind, body, spirit, and soul—to be in perfect and faithful alignment with God.

Our speech and actions reflect the type of relationship we have with God, they reflect what’s going on inside of us.

Are you a child of the world or are you God’s child? That is what we must always consider in words and deeds each day. And remember that if we entertain our thoughts they can be empowered to become words and actions. Be careful what you focus your mind on.

Do we fill ourselves with God’s loving Light and share this with the world, or do we fill ourselves with the darkness of the world and hurt others who come across our path?

Do we strengthen our bodies and senses to be of service to others, or do we allow ourselves to weaken and become lazily dependent upon others? Laziness is a trap that leads us to shrivel up and die.

Instead of waiting until the New Year, your birthday, or 60 to 90 days before a big event that you want to look good for, why not start eating and living healthier today? Instead of setting resolutions for the new year, end this year the way you want to live throughout and beyond 2022—doing and living well!

Prayer

Father, You woke me today to have yet another moment of learning experiences, another chance to grow more, and share more with others. Thank You. Father, thank You for my spiritual vision and other senses. Thank You for discernment to see right from wrong, where and when to go and when to stay put.

Thank You for revealing Your truth to me in small enough nuggets so that I may comprehend at a rate more conducive to my learning style, while also molding me to expand my capabilities beyond the limits of my comfort zone. You never leave me or get tired of me, You are patient and understanding, and I’m humbly grateful.

I pray that I may be a pure receptacle of Your light. Let me then share this light with others so that they can soak up Your love and share with others. Let my body be strengthened and healthy, that I might make many long journeys serving Your children until my last breath.

What I ingest I become, so I pray for the willpower to overcome temptation to consume things that are bad for me. I pray for the energy to get up each day and exercise without excuse for weather or time of day. These things I pray You bless me with today and every day. Amen.

Lovingly your sister in Christ,

Natasha
