Isaiah 25:6-10, Psalm 23:1-6, Matthew 15:29-37


Behold, the Lord comes to save his people;
blessed are those prepared to meet him.

Isaiah 25:6-10, Psalm 23:1-6, Matthew 15:29-37

Isaiah 25:6-10

Dear Love, Beloved of my soul,

God has made a Covenant with us from the moment of creation and He has renewed His eternal covenant with us over and over again. Even when we sinned and strayed God has remained faithful for He is true to Himself and having assured us that He is our God and we are His people He will never go back on His Word, His Eternal Word, uttered at the dawn of creation. You are The Word of the Father that was  incarnate of the Virgin Mary and became Man. 

Beloved, God keeps me in mind always. because I am His. Every man, woman, and child whether they know it or not, acknowledge it or not, belong to You.  All have been saved by the one, holy, and eternal, Sacrifice of Calvary and New Life is ours if only we will open ourselves to receive it. 

You Yourself are our food and drink. You have prepared a banquet for us in the sight of the enemy, You have made of us a nation of priests, prophets, and kings and You have made a place of rest for us in Yourself. No matter what happens in this sinful world where violence and depravity seem to rule the day, You continue to be the hope of the world, the Light that will never give way to the darkness of sin. Those who walk in the shelter of the Most High will lack nothing for You fill us, You satisfy us, in You we are made whole.

Psalm 23:1-6

The Lord is My Shepherd

Matthew 15:29-37

At that time:
Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee,
went up on the mountain, and sat down there. 
Great crowds came to him,
having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute,
and many others. 
They placed them at his feet, and he cured them. 
The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking,
the deformed made whole, 
the lame walking, 
and the blind able to see,
and they glorified the God of Israel.

Jesus summoned his disciples and said,
"My heart is moved with pity for the crowd,
for they have been with me now for three days
and have nothing to eat. 
I do not want to send them away hungry,
for fear they may collapse on the way." 
The disciples said to him,
"Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place
to satisfy such a crowd?" 
Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" 
"Seven," they replied, "and a few fish." 
He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. 
Then he took the seven loaves and the fish,
gave thanks, broke the loaves,
and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. 
They all ate and were satisfied. 

They picked up the fragments left over–seven baskets full.
