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. John 6: 35 NIV

Most of us will never know what it means to starve. We have food on our tables to sustain us. But often, we consume only mere morsels of spiritual crumbs and consider how empty our hearts have become. 

We hunger for peace and calm in a world that is hurting. We hunger for good health, and a spirit of content. We hunger for purpose and realize we are hungry for so much more…But Jesus satisfies hunger in those who want to be fed. He prepares us to receive nourishment for our souls, when we put our trust in Him. He waits to be invited to the table, so we can be filled with the loving gift of grace.

God satisfies the hunger of our hearts and provides perfect peace when we need it. When we have been nourished by His love, we will begin to understand how it feels to embrace a heart of content. He will fill us with His greatness. He will satisfy our hunger and guide us to His presence of peace. And, He will help us embrace a Spirit of thanksgiving, when we have humbled our hearts to understand how it feels to be faithfully full. 

Dear God, Thank you for all that You provide. You fill us full of everything we need and nourish the heart of our faithfulness. Teach us to trust, while we feed on Your word, commune with You and honor You with all of our love. And, never let us forget why we should always, always be grateful. Amen
