The other day I have a rather strange experience. I decided to go to the grocery store. On my way I started to feel a little off. I was dizzy, and weak. I started to pray. Lord give me the strength for today’s tasks. It was not long after that I became so incredibly hungry and thirsty. By the way I don’t recommend going to the grocery store when you are completely famished. I was asking God, “what in the world is going on with me?” I barely finished my grocery shopping and quickly made my way home to rest. As I walked in the door my eyes rested upon some scripture. It encouraged me to wait patiently upon the Lord and rest in him. So I took the rest of the day off and the rest of the week easy.
As I have pondered the rather bizarre experience and read from John 6 I was reminded that although I was at the grocery store and I physically felt hungry and thirsty, my true source of all my needs is Jesus himself. For he is the bread of life and my daily bread. My physical body may grow weak but Jesus is transforming my heart, mind and soul each day. Renewing and restoring me for I am his child. I went to the grocery store for food. I felt physically famished. But I also walked through the grocery store doors already holding the bread of life. I am a blessed women indeed.
“Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” “Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.” Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” John 6:32-40
