The Bread of Life Is Never Stale

Lord, give us today, our daily bread
Nutrients of love, grace, and faith in what you have said…
It sustains the body, soul and spirit…
When we read it and when we hear it…
Fresh from your bakery, like a sweet, fragrant pastry…
Filled with apples and cheese and jellies of goodness…
Words from God’s own mouth…
His truth is what it’s all about…
Giving hearts, peace and contentment, that refreshes the soul
Words of life, to fill my bowl…
Hot, buttered bread, to help us grow…
Whole grains, may your words flow…
Building us up in spirit and truth,
Giving us strength, on this road as we go…
Give us this day our daily bread…
Let us eat your word; devouring all that you’ve said…
From your humble table let us be fed…
Wheat fields and grains of this fertile land…
Harvested by Jesus’ own nail scared hands…
Fill us completely with your word each day…
Daily bread; living by what you say…
Teach us to live, laugh, love and pray
It’s your word that sustains us throughout the day!
When life gets difficult and we may lose our way…
Let us eat of your bread, believe and obey…
For your bread is the manna found on the wilderness trail…
And it will keep us abiding in you so we will never fail…
Daily bread is what I seek…
Resting in Jesus, as he wipes away, the tears on each cheek
We’ll eat together this bread that is sweet…
The bread of life, He makes us complete.

The Soul Takes Flight Poetry, ~ M. S. O’Neill
Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11 New King James Version (NKJV)
But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4 English Standard Version (ESV)

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
