Thought to share: Don’t spend your life wishing for something you don’t have. It’s a waste of your emotional energy, it exhausts your mind and leads to dissatisfaction and depression. It also prevents you from seeing the beauty of what you do have. Instead, choose to appreciate what you have. See the wonder of what’s currently in your hands. See the blessing in the complexities and challenges. Be thankful in everything, for everything. If you’ll do this, you’ll be able to see ME clearly, your perspective will shift and your heart will be full.

Philippians 4:11-13 (TPT) I’m not telling you this because I’m in need, for I have learned to be satisfied in any circumstance. I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. For I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. And I find that the strength of Christ’s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty.

Ephesians 5:20 (NLT) And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT) Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

Thought to share: you feel needy. You have a list of things you feel you must have to be happy, satisfied, content or to survive. But in reality, I AM all you need. MY Spirit poured out on you. MY Presence surrounding you. MY Love filling you. I AM the only One who can provide all your needs. Throw out your list and write a new one saying: All I need is Jesus.

Psalm 16:5-11 (GNT) You, LORD, are all I have, and You give me all I need; my future is in Your hands. How wonderful are Your gifts to me; how good they are! I praise the LORD, because He guides me, and in the night my conscience warns me. I am always aware of the LORD‘s presence; He is near, and nothing can shake me. And so I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure, because You protect me from the power of death. I have served You faithfully, and You will not abandon me to the world of the dead. You will show me the path that leads to life; Your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever.
Psalm 40:17 (NLT) As for me, since I am poor and needy, let the LORD keep me in His thoughts. You are my helper and my Savior. O my God, do not delay.
