“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
– 2 Corinthians 9:8
There’s a great quote from Lynne Twist in her book, The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Life, where she said, “For me and for so many of us, our first waking thought of the day is ‘I didn’t get enough sleep.’ The next one is, ‘I don’t have enough time.’ Whether true or not, that thought of not enough occurs to us automatically before we even think to question or examine it. We spend most of our hours and days of our lives hearing, explaining, complaining or worrying about what we don’t have enough of. Before we even sit up in bed, before our feet touch the floor, we’re already inadequate, already behind, already losing, already lacking something. And by the time we go to bed at night, our minds are racing with a litany of what we didn’t get, or what we didn’t get done that day. We go to sleep burdened by those thoughts and wake up to the reverie of lack; this internal condition of scarcity; this mindset of scarcity lives at the very heart of our jealousies, our greed, our prejudice and our arguments with life.”
Lord, help me to know that I am not lacking. With you, I have enough.
Do you sometimes wake up in the morning feeling like your lacking?
