Beating as One
welcome to today's encouragement from our daily bread enter some homburg and I titled our devotion beating as one
 stories have captivated humans since the dawn of creation functioning as a way to pass down knowledge long before written language existed
 we've all known the Delight of hearing or reading a story and being immediately engaged by such opening lines as Once Upon a Time the power of the story appears to extend beyond mere enjoyment when we listen to a story together our heart beats seem to synchronize
 the individual heartbeats very over the course of a day and my only match another's coincidentally new Research indicates our hearts may all fall into the same Rhythm the same story at the same time
 in Genesis 1:1 God against telling us his story with the words in the beginning
 from the moment Adam and Eve first Drew breath God has used that unfolding story to shape not just our individual lives but also and perhaps more importantly our Collective lives as his children
 Through the Bible the most magnificent nonfiction story ever recorded our hearts as Believers in Jesus are joined together as people set apart for his purpose
 in response to your heartbeat and shared with him delighted by the author's creative works
 and may we share his story with others declaring his glory among the Nations is marvellous Deeds among all peoples inviting them to become part of it too
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading is from Genesis 1:1 and verses 27 through 31
 in the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth so God created Mankind in his own image in the image of God he created them male and female he created them God bless them and said to them be fruitful and increase in number fill the Earth and subdue it rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky over every living creature that moves on the ground
 then God said I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it they will be yours for food
 and to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground everything that has the Breath of Life in it I give every green plant for food and it was so
 God saw all that he had made and it was very good and there was evening and there was morning the sixth day
 let's pray
 thank you Father for showing us who you are through the Bible and making us your own
 in Jesus name we pray amen
