All That I Need

Just think — you don't need a thing, you've got it all! 
All God's gifts are right in front of you as you wait 
expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive 
on the scene for the Finale. 
And not only that, but God Himself 
is right alongside to keep you steady and on track 
until things are all wrapped up in Jesus. 
God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, 
shares with us the life of His Son and our Master Jesus. 
He will NEVER give up on you. 
Never forget that. 

1 Corinthians 1:7-9 MSG

How often do I give up?
Or feel defeated, or overwhelmed, or lacking?

How often do I walk around feeling sorry for myself
because of what I have to do, because I see so much to be done,
because I feel the weight of responsibility on my shoulders? 

But I am not alone! I am not lacking!
I have all that I need!
That is the truth, and that is what I must cling to.

No matter what the circumstances may appear to be,
no matter how hopeless I am feeling,
the truth is God is for me...who can be against me?

He provides all that I need. 
His mercies are new every morning 
and His faithfulness is great. 

And even better... 
He will never give up on me.

God, the one and only —
I'll wait as long as He says. 
Everything I need comes from Him, 
so why not?
He's solid rock under my feet,
breathing room for my soul,
an impregnable castle:
I'm set for life.

Psalm 62:1-2
