Food for strength

Overwhelmed? Seem like things are at a dead end? Things not the way you think they should be? Remember Elijah under the broom tree, and the strengthening food he received from the Lord.

"And the angel of the Lord came again a second time, and touched him, and said, 'Arise and eat, else the journey will be too great for you.' And he arose, and ate and drank, and walked in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God." (I Kings 19)

Jesus said, "I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." (St. John 6)
