Enough Already~Arise!

There are days and weeks when I wish I could crawl into a cave and hide. Do you know the feeling? It's usually when I'm in overload and tired enough to be envious on a bear's hibernation. Days when even talking is a too much for me. You know how it is—chances are you've been there, too.

Elijah was no stranger to feeling this way. He sat down under a Juniper tree and said to God, “It's enough.” How many times have we cried out 'Enough already!'? But what happened with Elijah? An Angel fed him and said, “Arise, eat, because the journey is too great for you.” (I Kings 19:1-8)

The journey is too great for us, too. We need to eat—but not just bread alone. We need the Bread of Life.
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.” ~John 6:35

So, when we're crying 'Enough, already!' we need to fill up on Food that will carry us on our journey—whatever it is that God has for us. Without that Food, the journey will be too great for us.

Arise, my friend, and join me at the table.

ps~Today I'm at Exemplify Online's Blog, blogging about daffodils and lasting beauty. I'd love to see you there!


  1. Amen Patty! That is a wonderful "word" for us to remember!

  2. Okay, thank you for inviting me to "dinner."

    I'm at the table, may I "eat" now?


  3. Oh yeah, I am famished because I was on a "diet."

    I will be asking for a "second helping" as well Patty!


  4. Sooooo good.It's His food that does the most - that is the only thing that can satisfy!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
