I am the bread of life. Come to me and find your fill. In me you have life. You are nourished in my presence and at my side you grow strong. This is where you are nurtured. Be still a little while and hear my Word. As high as the heavens are above. As deep as the deepest sea. As wide as the expanse of all that you see and know and believe. So far and wide and high and deep is my love for you my darling. I am God. You are not. I know you and I love you. Come as you are my love and find rest. Though you hunger for many things, in me you are satisfied. I saw you. Unformed. I knew you then. And I know you now. I wove you together in your mother’s womb. I delight in your marvellous complexities. You make me smile. All your intricate parts came together. And now, here you are. Beautiful. Precious in my sight. Beloved. There’s a seat at my table for you. There’s a place here by my side. Come sit a while. Stay close and enjoy my presence. Let my word satisfy you. Find your fill in me.
“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
When was I being nourished by you?
Keep my heart close to you.
