What Are You Craving

“So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭1‬-‭3‬ ‭ESV‬

When I brought home my second child in November of 2020 I had no idea the “fun” we would have watching our oldest become a big sister. My absolute favorite memory of that first day was when she saw me feeding Stella.

Y’all

The questions and the concern 🤣

“Mom why are you letting her do that to your boobie?!?”

Her face was priceless and teaching her about the basics of human life and what newborns crave is what brings me here today.

Peter compared our yearning for the father like a newborn who craves her mothers milk.

Wow.

For anyone who’s been around a newborn at 2 am screaming bloody murder you know it’s an intense need.

Do you crave spiritual milk that intensely?! Can you survive without taking in the word and praying to God everyday?

If you’ve gone a long time without going to church, or without opening your Bible I would bet you feel “fine”.

But in reality you’re functioning like this….

Like ross holding hot plates without oven mitts, you are tackling big decisions and life without the sword of truth; the Bible. Your spiritual sanity is crumbling and before long the physical side will follow suite.

Where do you start?
Well I will tell you where I started.

I asked.

Simple huh?

I needed a renewed sense of love for the word. I yearned to teach others about Jesus, but I wasn’t drinking the spiritual milk and I struggled to find the desire. So I asked for it!

Let’s start there. Over the course of the next few weeks I pray you’ll gain the tools you need to start growing spiritually. Let’s start it with a prayer.

Dear God,
Thank you so much for giving me the desire for your word. Lord you are always present in my life and I am so thankful. I pray for the reader here that knows they are lacking “something”. I pray they would seek you and your desires. I pray their desires would be the same as yours. Lord. Help us make small reachable goals this year. Help us achieve those goals. Lord we love you
Amen.

God called me to start praying out loud over social media. I started this past week, if you missed it it click here —> Week 1 Reel Prayer

My goal is to have my blogs and reel prayers coincide to ultimately bring life back to our dry bones.
