Recently we decided to give up bread for a while. We changed our diet a bit. We’re taking out the starch, which means no more fries, no more potatoes, no more bread. Even bagels have to go. Funny how in the absence, you’re more aware of the pastry case. And people seem to be enjoying bread all over the place now a days.

The Bible makes it clear that’s the kind of relationship the Lord of the Universe wants with each of us – to be missed when not present, to notice, to pursue. Jesus on the cross called out in that absence of Him. What agony.

Made me think of how rich my prayer life needs to be, and how rich in the Word I need to be. That kind of craving results in true satisfaction.

“I am the living bread…” John 6:51
