John 6:22-29

After the disciples witnessed Jesus walking on the water, they returned to shore.  Meanwhile, the crowds who had been fed searched for Jesus. When they found him they asked how he had gotten to Capernaum. Rather than satisfying their curiosity, Jesus redirected their attention to the spiritual nature of his mission. He told them that the only reason they searched as they did was because of physical hunger. He cautioned them about relying on food that is perishable. The bread they need is the bread of the Father, the source of eternal life.

I confuse my wants with my needs. Would that I believed that you are all I need. I ask your grace to let go and trust in you.
