‘Spiritual Snacks’

By Donna Podobinski

The purpose of  the ‘Spiritual Snacks’ is to provide support for each other with daily love-filled prayer-care which helps us to remain Centered. Together, we can find each day to be filled with joy as we seek the Love & Peace of Eternity, of Heaven, which just happens to be within us. 

Our Spiritual Snacks are based on Sarah Young’s inspiring book of daily meditations, JESUS CALLINGEnjoying Peace in His Presence.  In Community with one another as/in Jesus’ Body, we are also called to be channels of His Peace.  Sharing these ‘Snacks’ is a way to channel His Peace as well as to provide a daily mutual prayer-presence for one another.

Given our human nature, we can quickly become out-of-balance, unCentered. Each day’s JESUS CALLING meditation is divided into 7 stand-alone ‘Spiritual Snack’ emails as reminders to re-Center with our Inner Peace Source. Each ‘Snack’ provides us with an opportunity to re-synchronize our heart beats with Jesus’ Heart and to exchange our thoughts for His calming, reassuring Peace. There are innumerable ways to re-Center in Jesus’ Peace. The Spirit leads us all uniquely.  To share the same ‘Spiritual Snacks’ with others is one such way.
