A Little Story About Our Daily Bread
On one occasion, when Elizabeth needed bread, Jesus did her a special favor. Jesus said, “Leave now. You must get bread for your family.”
When I entered the bakery, I remembered that it …was Saturday and I asked, “Do you still have bread?” They said, “No.” I was scared. What will happen now? When I was about to leave, I heard them call me. They had reserved a bread, but the one for whom they had set it aside did not come to get it. At once, I said, “My adorable Jesus.” He said, “I am that one. Do you see? The time you spend with Me should not harm your family.” (Elizabeth/Jesus) (February 14, 1965)
Today’s Readings: When he became aware of this he said to them, “Why do you conclude that it is because you have no bread? Do you not yet understand or comprehend? Are your hearts hardened? (Mark 8)
Prayer Meditation- O Lord today I wanted to meditate on the little story of Elizabeth and how You made sure her need for bread was met- just like You did for the disciples. Just like You do for us every day! Yet like the disciples we forget even when You multiply our meager resources to feed the five thousand! Lord help us to remember and to not let our hearts harden in fear or anxiety- You have us in the palm of Your Hands and You provide for us if we are faithful! Lord help us remember our own little stories of Your Goodness to us!
