Breakfast with Jesus

We lead busy much so that we often get up and launch into our days without proper preparation.  Many folks don't even eat breakfast.  Getting a good start can make all the difference each day.  Studies show that eating a good breakfast is linked with longer lives, less chronic disease and better overall health.  Here's another aspect: "The effects of a skipped breakfast are short attention span, lack of alertness, longer reaction time, low blood sugar, decreased work productivity." (thanks to Nancy Schmieder of Better Living Ministries)  .You are also putting fuel in your tank to energize your day.  I think the same is true in our relationship with the Lord.  Just as our energy and concentration can wane early without breakfast, so our spiritual focus can wander if we haven't begun our day with the Lord.  The contents of breakfast are important too.  We need fiber and high quality energy sources for best results.  We also need the fiber of God's Word and the energy that comes from being in His presence.  Think about having breakfast with Jesus.
John 21:12-13 Jesus said to them, "Come and eat breakfast." Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, "Who are You?"—knowing that it was the Lord.  Jesus then came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish.
