Early Morning Devotion

I awaken to the remnant of last night's work on the way to the coffee pot. The house is still, the early morning darkness still clinging to new day. Family sleeps.

{Disclaimer: In hindsight, this picture was snapped after supping with my Lord and the sun had joined me.}

My mind awakens to today's To-Do list beginning to scroll through my mind, with it's promise to capture much of my day. Resisting, I open the Word, and find my Lord to break the fast.

Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, according to the faithful mercies shown to David. ~Isaiah 55:1-3

I come to Jesus empty-handed. Spent. Wasted on things that do not sustain life.

He feeds me nonetheless. Loves me regardless. Tells me to eat of Him. To listen, eat what is good. To delight in his abundance. His faithful mercies.

Manna does not disappoint. I am soul-satisfied.
