Since writing my first book Breadcrumbs in the Storm some have asked about the significance of the title. As mention on the title page, those early days after our son died were like making our way through a dark wood where, on the path ahead, we found our first breadcrumb – the first of a series of supernatural coincidences uncovered in and around our son’s departure. Like “manna from heaven” each breadcrumb became “soul food” for us. It strengthened our hearts as we picked them up, and sustained our spirit as we followed the breadcrumbs during that long journey ahead of us. But if you’re asking: “What’s manna?”, you’ve answered your own question. The people who discovered it in the Sinai desert used the Hebrew word “manna” that sounds like the word for: “What is it?” [v15,31]

Give us today our daily Bread

Whatever it was, it came from the same person who created dew and the people had to go out of their way to specifically find and collect the “breadcrumbs”. [v4] So, as this epic storyline unfolds, I’ve noticed how on a physical level, manna is a parallel at a spiritual level with God’s Word today. As “soul food”, the Word of God is “bread” for me. Although it’s been provided freely, it has to be sort out, gathered and consumed.[a]
