There was a young medical student who had to be separated from his fiancé for several months to take his comprehensive exams. This was an agony for him.
One day he was sitting all alone at a table in a coffee shop at an airport stop. An elderly woman at the next table looked at him and said, “Honey, you look so depressed!”
“I am,” he replied with honesty as his eyes filled with tears. “What’s wrong?” she asked. He told her about his fiancé and how much he loved her and how much he missed her.
She told him she had been married to a traveling salesman who had passed away. She shared how they often cried when he had to go on the road and how happy they were when he returned. “You’re going to have a wonderful marriage,” she said. “Everything is going to be just fine.”
She then ordered a donut, broke it and gave half to him. As she did this, an announcement came over the loudspeaker. “Oh my, the people are on board and my flight will be taking off,” she said. She smiled at him as she got up and hurried off to the gate. Only then were his eyes opened and he recognized Jesus in the breaking of the donut.
Think of and share with someone how YOU were able to recognize Jesus in the breaking of the bread or the donut.
NO MATTER HOW BROKEN LIFE SEEMS, JESUS FEEDS US, RESTORES US AND REDEEMS US!
