My father, a pilot in the Air Force, was killed on active duty flying into French Guiana many years ago. As a result, at 8 years old, I was officially classified by the military as a war orphan. Today I read an interesting article about war orphans. It seems that at the end of World War II, the Allied forces found many hungry and starving orphans. And while they received excellent care and were well fed, the orphans couldn’t fall asleep or stay asleep. One psychologist came up with a solution that worked. Each child was given a piece of bread to hold on to when they went to bed. This allowed the children to sleep soundly, because they were assured they would have food the next day.
Today many people live in spiritual hunger every day and they don’t even recognize it. And many people face types of wars like anger, unrest, temptation, illness, doubt, and unbelief, they can’t even begin to navigate.
My friend if you want peace, comfort and sustaining food for your life, regardless of the battles you may face… hold on to Jesus, He is the bread of life, the bread that fills and sustains, the bread that gives eternal life to all who believe in Him.
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me will never hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.”
