Daily bread

 Matthew 6:11  Give us today our daily bread.
I sure have been blogging more frequently lately. Fall makes me strive even harder to capture these days. This season is a reminder of how short this time is and how swiftly these days are coming, then gone. I never neglect blogging for lack of content, only lack of time, there is always so much I could say, so much on my heart that I never get to share.
These colorful leaves make me happy, they make me want to open my blinds and enjoy each moment of these days growing shorter. These days seem brighter and friendlier though there are still the same dailies of life and the struggles with them.
 Today I was once again reminded that Jesus is my daily bread, not a frequent pick me up. Life is busy and He is right at the top of the list of things that get left on the list undone. He is the very thing that is not to be done for the sake of doing, but done for the sake of living. He sustains me and my soul thrives vibrantly when I seek Him. He is the one that makes the days worth living and each one precious. God, forgive me for all the days I go without, I neglect and choose lesser than I was created to feast on.
Beautiful mercies everyday await me, thank heavens! Today I heard Him calling me back. He draws me back again and again because I'm always drifting; sometimes it feels like sinking. When I hear my heart longing I always run back and He pulls me closer. Sweet Jesus!
