2015.08.09: we are what we eat

I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world. – Jn 6:51


we are what we let our eyes see
we are what we let our ears hear
we are what we let our hands touch
we are what we let our noses smell
we are what we let our tongues taste
we are what we let our minds perceive
we are what we let our hearts feel

when we eat of this bread
and we believe these words
we become what we eat
we are what we eat

2015.08.02: daily bread

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” – Jn 6:35


this bread i eat
this cup i drink
the bread of life
the living water
you are enough

but
when i wander too far
when i stray off the way
when i hunger for truth
when i thirst for life
then
i have forgotten you
the bread of life
the living water

all i have to do:
remember
believe
return to you
eat this bread
drink this cup

my daily bread
is enough
for today

no one
is promised
tomorrow
