Five Minute Friday-Lack

When I think of lack I often remember the verse in the 23rd Psalm-reminding me I will not lack anything. Without much thought I think I lack nothing-I have more than enough food, have shelter, a great car, our dogs that follow me around, our chickens and my amazing husband. I.lack.nothing.

Then I am reminded I often lack:





Self Control

and then I am so grateful that I live a life that strives to improve but is not expected to be perfect. Perfection will come when I see my Lord face to face. So, for now, yes, I lack no material needs and as for the spiritual things I lack I will continue to look to Jesus for his grace, mercy, love and wisdom.


So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,

  1. Encouraging post! I’m grateful that we can turn to God for help in those times when we’re lacking grace, patience etc. and we don’t have to work them up for ourselves.
