Daily bread

Sometimes I feel defeated.  I was baptized the first week in December, and since have missed church 3 times.  The first was a planned family thing for Christmas.  Then for the last two weeks we have been passing our sickness back and forth here.  Just when I start feeling better, I get it again. 

Tonight I decided to read ahead in my 90 day challenge (because I don't feel like moving around) and this verse is really sticking out to me.

Then the Lord said to Moses, "I will rain down bread from
heaven for you.  The people are to go out each day
and gather enough for that day..." - Exodus 16-4

I feel that is what God is doing for me right now!  He brought this challenge to me so that I could get my daily bread.  Even though the devil is trying really hard to steal me away again, God has used this challenge to bring me closer.  This is a big deal for me.  I have never even thought of reading the bible like a novel, but it makes sense for me to do it like this.  It's great for me because I am one of those people who will sit and read a whole book in a day because I can not put it down.  Thank you God for helping me take one day at a time in my journey to grow closer to you!

Forever Changing,

  1. Love that you can see through the fog!! I feel defeated myself often and I know that I have been getting little treasures of messages from God! :-) Making sure that each day I get into His word is perfect and I love being able to share it with a group too!
