Daily bread

My real dreams in life have nothing to do with eating white bread. :)

But they have everything to do with following Jesus, the bread of life.

"Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty." -- John 6:35

I don't know exactly what is in store for my future. I don't know what tomorrow may bring. I don't know a lot of things.

But I do know that I can daily turn to Jesus during this journey of life, and he will satisfy.

And I also know what I want in life. I want to enjoy each day, live to the fullest, and be as Christ-like as possible.

I also want to travel the world and experience as much of God's creation as I possibly can. And while I'm enjoying different scenery, people and cultures, I want to soak it all in. I want to dance on beaches and stop to take pictures, pray, and watch & interact with life around me.

A couple of times I've been called a free spirit. Curious, I looked up what calls a "free spirit," and it says, "A person with a highly individual or unique attitude, lifestyle, or imagination; a non-conformist."

Hmm, I guess a nonconformist is what a Christian should be by not conforming to the world. To be honest, that's something I really struggle with. The thing is, I love the world and its people, and I want to explore it.

I pray daily that I can help shine light in the world with my attitude and lifestyle.
