Want and Plenty
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Father, thank you for the wonderful memories you’ve woven into my life for me to look back on in hard times. Thank you for all the laughter, deep conversations, fun, opportunities for trying new things, and the beauty you’ve led me in experiencing. I’m reminded how precious those gifts are and am more thankful for troubles as they contrast easier times. Thank you for offsetting adversities with gladness. Please show me how I can bring joy to others during their challenging periods of life. Amen.
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
