Sharing Love from Sweden - HUNGRY FOR GOD by Eva Haglund

Hungry for God

We need more of God.

In John.6:35 is written that Jesus is the Bread of life.  We need the heavenly Bread.

We need more of Jesus. We need to seek Him more. We also need the Word because Jesus is the Word. We  need to be hungry for it - to read it more. If we do not have Jesus we starve in the world because the Bible say He is the Bread. The Bread came to House of Bread - Bethlehem. The Bread came to the earth. In John.1.14 is written that the Word became flesh.

In nature we can see nestlings who open their mouth very big longing for food from a parent. We need to be hungry like this birds after food -after more of God.

Many people are starving today. They do not have usual food. Also many are starving if they do not have the Bread -Yeshua in the world. Like nestlings who are waiting for bread they need the heavenly Bread.

Christians need to learn to know God more and His Word more - to know God more - more of Him.

The enemy want us to think that we do not need more of God and to read His Word more, but we need more of Him and His Word! In Matt.5:3 we read, " Blessed are the poor in spirit. For theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

I am thinking that this means that we shall be poor - thinking that we do not think we  have "anything" - what we have is not so much of God but we need more. In churches leaders sometimes there can have  attitudes - " see what we have"  and  "see what we have done. See how good we are." They boast about themselves. Their attitude is not humble when they ought to be.

Sometimes people want to have like a party when it is time for humility, crushed heart, tears before God and the church, to seek Him in prayer. I am not against parties but it is not always right time for it when the church needs to be humble and seek God.

We need to be humbly like children who has an attitude to a parent: " I need you."

To be poor I think is to think that I need more. I have not "got it." I need more of God. GOD  has got it.

To learn to know him is like to learn to know a big sea because he is so big. The Word is like a golden mine.

 It is like a big treasure. In Isaiah 45:3  we read, "I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places." God want us to get more of this treasures. We need to seek Him.

To learn to know God is not boring because He is love. To seek Him more is good for us. To read the Word build us up.

David says in Ps. 63:1 "O God, You are my God,early will I seek You. I thirst for You. My flesh longs for you. In a dry and thirsty land where there is no water." Here we read about a hunger for more of God.

In Ps. 42:1 David says, "As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, oh God." Here we see again a longing for God.

I think God wants us to learn to know him more as a friend and to know more of the heavenly treasures.

It is good to learn to know his voice more and this needs time with God.

 We need to be like the nestlings.

"I am so hungry! I need food!"

In Isaiah 55:1 it is written, "Ho,Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters. And you who have no money,Come buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk.

Without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good. And let your soul delight itself in abundance."

We need to be hungry for God.

We need Him!

Honey Whole Wheat Challah


Honey Whole Wheat Challah

Read Reviews (5)
"Challah, the delicious and beautiful braided bread traditionally served at the Friday night Jewish Sabbath meal, is made with the addition of whole wheat, and sweetened with honey. This slow-rise recipe is designed for flexibility, so split-second timing isn't necessary. This is a wonderful bread for a first-time breadmaker. Braid with a 3 or 4-strand braid, and sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds." —

Original recipe makes 3 loavesChange Servings


  1. In a large bowl, mix yeast, warm water and 1 cup of bread flour into a thin batter, and let stand until the mixture shows frothy bubbles, about 10 minutes. Stir in vegetable oil, honey, 3 eggs, and salt until well combined. Beat in 2 more cups of bread flour and the whole wheat flour, alternating flours by cupfuls, until the dough is too stiff to stir in more flour.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes, adding more flour if needed to form a slightly sticky dough. Form the dough into a round shape. Lightly oil a bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn the dough over a few times to oil the surface. Cover the bowl with a plastic bag, and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Punch down the dough, knead it a few times to remove some of the bubbles, and cut it into 3 equal-sized pieces. Cut the first piece into 3 equal parts. Set the rest of the dough aside under a cloth to prevent drying out while you braid the first loaf.
  4. Working on a floured surface, roll the small dough pieces into ropes about the thickness of your thumb and about 12 inches long. Ropes should be fatter in the middle and thinner at the ends. Pinch 3 ropes together at the top and braid them. Starting with the strand to the right, move it to the left over the middle strand (that strand becomes the new middle strand.) Take the strand farthest to the left, and move it over the new middle strand. Continue braiding, alternating sides each time, until the loaf is braided, and pinch the ends together and fold them underneath for a neat look. Repeat for the other 2 loaves, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and let rise until doubled, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon of water in a small bowl, and brush the egg mixture over the braided challah loaves. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are a deep golden brown and the loaves sound hollow when tapped on the bottom, about 40 minutes. Cool on a rack before slicing.
