Daily Bread: Day 4 of 7

By Summer Elizabeth Ball

If you haven’t already read my article, A New Tradition: Daily Bread in the SheBelieves Magazine Volume 1 Issue 2. This blog post continues my and my mama’s journey of growing, keeping, and using a sourdough starter.

Today, we found our sourdough starter with some liquid settled at the top. Per Jami’s blog post How to Grow, Keep, & Use a Sourdough Starter on An Oregon Cottage, Simple Homemade Life, we opted to leave the liquid or “hooch,” as she calls it. Today, We mixed up the starter a little with the wooden spoon and then added the dry and wet ingredients right into the same jar.

Today, we added 1/2 cup of King Arthur, 100% Whole Grain Whole Wheat Flour, 1/2 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Dark Rye Flour, and then 1 cup of arrowhead water at room temperature. Again, we slowly mixed it all up inside the jar with our wooden spoon until it was thoroughly mixed.

Here is what it looked like after we covered the jar with some cheesecloth.
We put it back on top of the refrigerator to grow some more until tomorrow, Day

I want to encourage you today with the following passage from 1 Peter

“Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders.
Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with
humility, for

‘God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.’

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that
He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for
He cares for you.

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks
about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him,
steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by
your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may the God of all grace, who
called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a
while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To
Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

Consider what this passage is telling us, and apply it to your life today.

Come back to our blog tomorrow, for day 5 of the Daily Bread series.

All Scripture quotes from King James Version.
