Unexpected essentials

Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and yet we have everything. 2 Cor. 2:10

It is impossible to do a full needs assessment before launching into God’s work. Following Him means we allow Him to redefine ideas like “need” or “desired conditions.” What me might consider essential before launching into a project may not even be on God’s radar and what He considers essential might be unexpected.

Lord, I trust You to supply what I need and show me how to work with it.
