Gospel reflection: “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall never be hungry, and whoever believes in me shall never be thirsty.”—The other day while I was going through my newsfeed in instagram, I came across this picture of a bible with these words stamped all over it: DAILY BREAD, DON’T LET YOURSELF STARVE. It made me smile because one it was outright witty and funny, and two, there’s so much truth in it. I discovered that when no amount of explanation can satisfy my cravings for answers on things I can’t seem to understand in my life, turning to the daily scripture or doing some kind of spiritual reading helps. Though it may not clearly state the answers to all my problems, it does make me gain a deeper understanding of how the Lord works to deliver His promises. And this practice, as always, leaves me with little room for yearning but more room for witnessing how the Lord moves to fill my cup to overflowing.
