“Get up and eat, or the journey will be too long for you”
1 King 19: 4-8
If we feel like everything is too much and we want to just pack it all in, we can be reassured by this reading that we are not the first to feel this. Jesus doesn’t ask us to do everything on our own.
Even when we feel the next steps of our journey are impossible for us to take and we have all but given up, Jesus reminds us that he can provide us with the nourishment we need to travel long distances.
Do we recognize our angel waking us from our sleep? Who is this? And what are they offering us to sustain us that can take us further than we can imagine? Jesus will always give us what we need to live the life he has called us to.
