Yesterday, I was so greatly encouraged by a dear sister in Christ. She encouraged me to simplify my spiritual diet when going through a spiritual storm/sickness, just as we simplify our diet when we are physically unwell. So this morning, as I sat and ate my regular breakfast, I shared the moment with the Lord and this poem is what resulted. You would be very blessed by going to this sister’s blog and listening to the Lord’s words of wisdom, encouragement and blessing through what she shares in her 9 minute video called Episode #10 “Spiritual Storms & Sickness” by clicking on this link Love, Bridget. It was Life to me. 🙂
Every morning as I eat toast and drink tea
I’m reminded of ‘Christ in me’.
I remember the brokenness of His body
the Covenant of His blood
The promise of His Kingdom come.
My daily bread with melting butter
Peanut butter and vegemite
Reminds me how He has melted my heart
And set things right.
He has made me the salt of the earth
and has smothered me
in His warm love
just like the tea.
With every sip that I drink down
I’m reminded of that Kingly crown.
That King of kings and Lord of lords
That One who died for us all.
His promise of return
To embrace His bride.
That blood that flowed out
from His side.
My daily bread
My daily drink.
Of His sufferings will I partake.
Of His joy and resurrected life
I share in these
My great delight.
Enjoy a simple day with the Lord folks! 🙂
