Our Daily Bread

God spoke to me this morning as I was writing a note to a friend. Has that ever happened to you? I sat down to write a note of New Year encouragement to a friend that lives in a nursing facility. All kinds of platitudes were appearing on the page like…Hope this new year is brighter and Glad 2020 is over…you get the idea. Then I decided to add a Bible verse to fill space in the card (being honest here…) I reached for my phone and favorite Bible App. This was the verse of the day…today, January 5th, 2021 and it hit me square in the face….

Give us this day our daily bread.

Matthew 6:11 (ESV)

Today…not tomorrow, not next week, not all of 2021. After all, we do not know what the future holds. We can hope and wish for better times…but what if? What if 2021 is not better…what if covid never goes away…what if? This verse today gives me great comfort. God has this! We are to trust Him each and every day. He gives me what I need and I praise Him for that! 

Thank you, Lord for showing me today that you give me what I need every day.  Amen
