“11 I speak not because of want: for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12 And I can be abased, and I can abound: everywhere in all things I am instructed, both to be full, and to be hungry, and to abound, and to have want.
13 I am able to do all things through the help of Christ, which strengtheneth me.”
Philippians 4: 11-13 (1599 Geneva Bible)
Though we lack many a temporal thing,
such as beds to the children,
cabinets, coat hooks,
and hot water from the tap . . .
we have so very much to be thankful for.
We have been given strength
during the hardest of times,
We are still far from living the sustainable life
we so desire,
but we are so much closer than we used to be.
And we know that He was, is, and will be with us
loving us . . .
so for that we can be forever thankful,
May your 2015 be blessed with many opportunities to make much of Creator Yahweh as you love Him and love others!
