Today’s word is NEED.
Ok, let’s see. What do I need?
What comes to mind first:
-Coffee, with French vanilla creamer, please.
-A better attitude. (every day)
-Students to turn in every assignment.
-A new pair of boots would be nice—scuff marks are so uncool. (Mine have scuff marks)
Or is it more like..
-The basic necessities.
All we really need is…
-LOVE??? (Pretty sure that’s been said before)
It is hard to separate out our needs from our wants. I’m pretty sure I know what I want…but what I need…that is another story.
My time is drawing to a close, mind swirling, how can I wrap this up?
In the process of writing, two verses from the Psalms did come to mind:
Psalm 142:5 "I cry to you O Lord, I say, 'You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.'"
Psalm 73:26 "My flesh and my heart my fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever!"
God is our portion. A portion is just enough. A portion meets our need.
He promises to be our “enough” for each day.
He meets our need. Whatever it is. With just enough.
