What I’m Thankful For #12: Daily Bread

This is one in a series of daily posts I conceived of writing many weeks ago while the election still raged on, as I looked for something to write about of more lasting value. The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving seemed perfectly appropriate for it. Just in case you wondered, the topics introduced are not necessarily in any particular order. I hope the series is of some small encouragement to you, even as my site traffic takes a dive.

During the most famous prayer He taught His disciples, the Savior urged us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” As we look ahead to more challenging economic times, this admonition may become more meaningful for many Americans. God promises His children that He will provide for their needs on a daily basis. These needs take on many forms, including the physical essentials as well as the spiritual nourishment crucial to our growth.

I don’t have that kind of faith yet, but I strive to be grateful for what God has provided today.
