Bread for the Journey


We live on the beautiful coast of British Columbia where locals are known to affectionately call it the wet coast.  This summer has been unusually dry and our farm has taken on a new look with feathers from the chicken barns coordinating with the dry grass.  



Normally we mow the field every week to keep it tidy but this year the only thing that needs mowing is the weeds that still seem to be thriving. 

As I've walked across our dry field this summer I have thought about how our spiritual lives are a bit like a drought when we don't do anything intentional to keep it nourished and thriving.   When we neglect worshipping with believers and reading the Bible, our struggles quickly become hard to overcome.  I also notice how encouraged I am when I am in church worshipping God,  filling my soul with the truth of his lovingkindness for another week ahead. 

Let's encourage each other to keep our hearts and minds filled with the truths of God's word that revives us.


Revive me, O Lord, according to You lovingkindness.  The sum of Your word is truth, and every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.

Psalm 119:159-160 NASB
