Yom Berekha

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is teaching me, continually, the meaning of patience. Your Word tells me that when I am impatient, I will act foolishly, and that is NOT my desire. Thank You, ABBA, You are not only teaching me to WAIT, but You are also teaching me to enjoy the waiting. It is in the waiting that my strength is renewed, and my “emunah”, my belief and trust in You, is confirmed. My heart overflows with Your goodness …

Yom Berekha

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who covers me with the wings of YOUR shalom, Your peace. When I recognize and understand what “shalom” really is – the destruction of all the forces that create chaos – I learn to appreciate Your shalom more and more. Thank You, my “Sar Shalom”, my Prince of Peace, for WHO You are! Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who not only brings fresh mercy every morning, but also fresh joy with each sunrise. As I continue to yield to You, my Father, in love and obedience, YOUR joy overflows IN and THROUGH my life - the praise rises up, YAH, for that is what my purpose is! So worthy are You, ABBA Father, to receive ALL praise, honor, and glory!
“Sing to יהוה[YHWH] a new song, Sing to יהוה[YHWH], all the earth! Sing to יהוה[YHWH] bless His Name, Proclaim His deliverance from day to day.”

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who blessed me with the gift of Shabbat. Thank You, my Father, for this special time that You created, a time when I can set everything mundane aside, and run away with my heavenly Bridegroom, my Creator and my Elohim. I give thanks, ABBA, for this 24 hour period, when I can catch a glimpse of what the ‘honeymoon’ will be like. Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is training me in HOW to “serve one another in love.” I am to consider others before myself: their needs, their ‘shalom’, and their feelings must come before my own. Thank You, my Father, that as I help bear the burdens of others, I am walking in Torah, and learning more and more of HOW to “love my neighbour as myself.” Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is teaching me to ‘taste’ my words, ‘hear’ them, before they ever leave my mouth. My words that come out of my mouth MUST reflect the life of Messiah Yeshua, for You have repeatedly shown me that there is life and death in the words that I speak. Thank You, ABBA, that through the power of the Holy, Set-Apart Breath of YHWH, my tongue is being tamed, and is proving to be a fountain of blessings! Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who has created each person as an individual, unique, and completely original. You have filled each one with a blend of talents and giftings, and then placed us where YOU wanted us to be. I am neither carpenter, nor law enforcement officer, but I admire and respect those that are. I cannot perform delicate surgery on the human eye, neither can I understand a complicated blue-print of a multi-story building, but I rest in the place that YOU, ABBA, have chosen for me to walk in. I acknowledge and recognize that ALL wisdom and knowledge has its source and foundation in You, my Father, for it is Your wisdom that laid the foundation of all that I know! You are the “El De’ot”, the Elohim of ALL Knowledge, and worthy of ALL honor, praise, and glory!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is clarifying to me the importance of keeping ‘my word’. If I give ‘my word’ to someone, especially YOU, my Father, it should be a priority to me to KEEP this word, to DO what I have said that I would do. If I choose to NOT keep ‘my word’, I am proving myself to be untrustworthy, and false. ABBA, help me to BE the person of integrity that YOU require me to be, someone who’s word is trustworthy. Amein.

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is instructing me on the ‘how’ to be selective in my HEARING. There is much deceptive information available to me, and evil reports abound; however, I must choose what I will “sh’ma”, hear and obey. Today, my Father, I make the choice of whose report I will believe: I believe the Word of my Elohim, which remains forever!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who fills me with YOUR strength when I am weak. You not only walk with me THROUGH the water and fire, THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death, but You also carry me on eagles’ wings, that my strength might be restored. You teach me that it is not necessarily the one with the greatest strength that prevails, but it is the one whose strength is submitted and yielded to YOU. My Father, how awesome You are! You have made provision for everything I might need, if I would only seek YOU first! Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe.  Thank You, my Father, for the six days of creation, when everything, above and beyond my imagination, was made.  And thank You, ABBA, for the ‘rest’ that You ordained for the seventh day. I am commanded to join You in the 7th day Shabbat, and it is with pleasure I do so. Shabbat is enjoyable, and it is also exciting! Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe. My Father, You have instructed me to “pray for the peace of Yerushalayim”, and I am to “bless the children of Yisra’ĕl”. I know, ABBA, that there will be no lasting peace until my Messiah King comes again, yet I pray that those who dwell in Your special city will have a sense of ‘shalom’ in the midst of these troubled times. And I continue to speak blessings over Yisra’ěl, knowing that these will always be Your chosen people, “the apple of Your eye”. Thank You, my Elohim, that I am now a part of Yisra’ěl, adopted in through my Messiah Yeshua! Hallelu- YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe. I choose, this day, to honor my parents, as You, my Elohim, have instructed me to do. Even though they are no longer alive, I wish to freely give to them the respect, esteem, favor, and appreciation that, as my parents, they warrant.  And I am thankful, ABBA, for my LIFE, for without my parents, I would not BE. Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who abhors ‘enmity’ between those that are called by HIS Name. ‘Enmity’ equates a hostile attitude, and it is impossible for me to walk in unity with the ‘brethren’ while nursing such an attitude. Thank You, my Father, for revealing to me that ‘enmity’ has its root in pride, which will always bring a person LOW. And I thank You, ABBA, that as I humble MYSELF under Your hand, You are the One who lifts me up! Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who takes me by the hand, and leads me in the paths of righteousness for YOUR name’s sake. These are paths of truth and holiness, of consecration and commitment, and though I may not understand every turn in the road, I KNOW that You are there with me. You, ABBA, go before me to prepare the way, and You are my faithful rear guard, watching over me, and guiding every step that I take. May this walk I am on bring You praise, honor and glory, in Yeshua’s Name! Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who teaches me, again and again, how the principal of sowing and reaping prevails in every area of my life. When I act (sow) in haste, I reap the consequences of it, generally NOT to my benefit. When I give (sow) generously, with wisdom and discretion, I reap a bountiful harvest. When I speak (sow) words in spontaneous anger and haste, I will probably reap a ‘tiger by its tail’. When I submit every area of my life to the MASTER GARDENER, allowing Him to do the work within me of pruning, fertilizing, and watering, what I sow, at HIS direction, I will reap accordingly at HIS discretion.
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener … Stay in Me, and I stay in you. As the branch is unable to bear fruit of itself, unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you stay in Me.”
Gal 6:7; Rom 2:6; Joh 15:1-6 ©2016 http://www.breadfromthebasket.com/

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are YOU, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who speaks to me quietly in the stillness of the early morning hours. Line upon line, step by step, You open up to me Your TORAH, Your Word, and give me the understanding that I need to walk in the way that I should go. I hear Your voice behind me, in my ear, saying, “YES, this IS the way, continue to walk IN it.” Thank You, my Adonai, for You truly are “THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life”. I know that I am nothing without You, and it is Your presence that I long for, each moment, each hour, each day. My YAH, my King, my Bridegroom … Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe.  Thank You, my Father, for the seven day week cycle, culminating with Your Shabbat, Your “kadosh”, sanctified, set-apart day. The 7th day Sabbath brings with it a sense of security and stability, for I know that as long as the earth remains, there will always be the beauty of the Shabbat. Thank YOU, “El Elyon”, my Most High Elohim, for the security and stability that comes only from Your hand. Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is the author and originator of peace. Your name is “Sar Shalom”, the Prince of Peace, and peace is found only in an intimate relationship with You. By recognizing and acknowledging who YOU are, and accepting Your kingship in my life, I am flooded and enveloped with YOUR peace, the peace that is beyond understanding. Safe and secure, I KNOW that my Creator will never leave me, never abandon me, but tenderly watches over me, ‘keeping’ me under HIS wings. How I love You, my Elohim and my King! Amein.

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who created me with a VOICE. Thank You, ABBA, for the ability to shout out Your praise, to sing songs of thanksgiving and joy to YOU, my King. Thank You, my Master, for the capacity to speak words of encouragement, edification and comfort to those who are in need. And I thank You, my Elohim, that I can provide an answer to those who ask concerning the hope of my “emunah”, my trust and faith in you. May the words of my mouth always be pleasing in Your ears, my “Elohim Chayim”, my LIVING God. AMEIN!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who gives me water, water to satisfy the thirst of a tired and dry body. You give me water to cook with, wash with, sustain my pets and livestock with, and to raise my garden with. My Father, You freely have given me of Your LIVING water, that I may drink, and drink, and drink to my heart’s content. By the washing of water and the Word, You continue to cleanse and sanctify me, preparing me to be the Bride You desire me to be. You are my “El Tsaddik”, the RIGHTEOUS Elohim, and I thank You for Your precious water, that I appreciate so … let it rain, YAH, let it rain!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is teaching me the necessity of ‘patience’. As I learn to be still and wait on You, my Father, I begin to understand why I am to “count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the proving of your belief works endurance.” It is as I wait and endure patiently, that I am showing the world around me in WHOM I trust: the “El Echad”, the ONE Elohim! Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is my “Roeh”, my Shepherd. I am not in want, for You meet my EVERY need, by Messiah Yeshua. I thank You, my Father, that goodness and mercy will shadow me all of my days. And I give you honor and esteem, for according to YOUR Word, I will dwell in the house of my Elohim forever. AMEIN!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are YOU, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe.  You, by Your example, reveal to me all that I am NOT.  Many are the twists and turns in the path of life that I stumble through, while from each one I pull a valuable lesson, always pressing on toward that goal in Messiah Yeshua. At each turn, I throw away more unnecessary baggage, cut off more flesh, and eat more of the humble pie that tastes remarkably like Torah. Through it all, I love You more, for I know that as ALL things are working together for my good, I WILL come forth as pure gold. Thank You, “Elohim Avinu”, Elohim, my Father. Amein.

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who patiently waits for me to join with You in celebrating Your sanctified and set-apart day, Your Shabbat. I thank You, ABBA, that the ordinance concerning this day is symbolic of an everlasting covenant with You. When I choose to celebrate this day with my Creator, it reveals to those around me WHO I am, Your child, taking great pleasure in my relationship with You. I thank You, Yah, for this special day, I praise and bless You with all that I am.  AMEIN!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who provided for me Your Word, Your Torah, Your “Memra”. Thank You, my Father, for the firm foundation that Your Torah gives me, Your divine instructions in moral and righteous living. Your Word is truth, and it is the standard of truth that I use to judge all else. And I thank You, ABBA, that Your Word will always accomplish what YOU intend for it to do. Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who fills my lungs with YOUR breath every morning, who gives light to my eyes as they open to the day, and anoints my ears to hear the sounds of this world that You have created. My Father, I am aware that without You, there is no life worth living, and I choose to give thanks for all of the simple, yet necessary things that I tend to take for granted. The air that I breathe, the light from my window, the soft carpet when my feet hit the floor, even the alarm clock that notifies me another day’s routine is beginning – all of these ultimately come from Your hand. I give thanks, my Elohim, for “every GOOD and perfect gift comes from above”, from the Father of all Light, that Father of all LIFE, who never changes. Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who created the birds of the air, ranging from the mighty eagle, to the dainty hummingbird. Thank You, my Father, for all of these winged creatures that are such a delight to watch, as they go about their day, lacking nothing. And thank You, ABBA, for the lesson learned from the feathered world: “…they neither sow nor reap nor gather into storehouses, yet my heavenly Father does feed them.  Am I not worth more than they?”

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who has greatly enriched my life through the people that are a part of my world. From the postal worker to the beautician, from the grocery clerk to the garbage collector, all of these individuals are treasures within themselves. Thank You, my Father, for each one, and for the valuable lessons they teach me. May Your blessings rain upon each one of them. Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who calms all of the traumatizing storms, tornadoes, and cyclones that rage through my existence. When the circumstances and situations of life overwhelm me, You, my Father, are there to pick me up, dust me off, and turn me around to where I recognize where I am: under the shadow of Your wings, the ONLY place of refuge worth seeking. It is to YOU that I run when the rip-tide threatens to drag me under, for You, my Father, are the HIGH TOWER no storm can penetrate. Worthy, worthy, worthy to receive all praise, all honor, all glory, is my Elohim!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe.  Your Word tells me that I am to “focus my mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” I am not to concentrate and become entangled with the ‘things’ of this world, but I am to look forward, to the days when Your rule will encompass the earth. Thank You, my Father, that YOU are my tomorrow, for You are already there. Hallelu-YAH!
