Breakfast with Jesus...

"Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread…Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” ~John 21:9,12
He knew, among many countless things...that they were quite simply....hungry.
The Creator of the Universe and all things in it....knew and cared about hunger.
The best part? He still does!!!

He wants to know...Peter, the original invitee to breakfast, tell us flat out- 

"Turn all your worries over to Him. He cares about you." ~1 Peter 5:7

Peter doesn't put a limit on what to talk to Him about.
He doesn't say, only give Him your worries about: North Korea, The Venezuelan election or drone strikes......
He says turn ALL your worries over to Him.
This includes the argument with your teenager on the way to school...
The stress you feel when "out of whack" with a friend or family member...

The anxiety of ______________ (fill in your own blank)....

He still calls. 
He still cares. 

So, today...let's take Him up on His invitation to "breakfast".

I'm afraid sometimes, I'm too quick to complain that it ain't Shipley's! 
Sometimes it might look like a fish on a stick over a fire, with the head still on it.
All that matters is, we are invited to sit with Him and hand over our worries.

God, Thank You for caring...about all of the things that are on our hearts.

In His Dust,
