“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Sometimes I’m foolish and forget how desperately I need God’s strength to get through every single day. When it comes to all my worries and all the problems I see around me, I try to take it upon myself to solve them all.
The truth is, I can’t. The kind of strength I need could never be my own. I’m too weak, but thank goodness I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
