From the Moravians

On a day where I was up late studying, woke from odd dreams again, and was out the door before 7am to write the first of two exams for the day, this daily text from the Moravians seemed particularly appropriate:

I will satisfy the weary, and all who are faint I will replenish.
Jeremiah 31:25

Jesus ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled. Matthew 14:19-20

Redeemer of our souls, we hear the noises of everyday living and feel panicked. Give us a moment of calm to re-center ourselves in your spirit. Surround us with your love. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
