 “Therefore, I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?” Matt 6:25

When I was a kid, we were apparently dirt poor. After my mother left our father because of abuse, we were rejected by the Catholic church, because divorce was not allowed, and had nowhere to go and no support. My mother found a job and a place for us to live. She refused ADC, Aid to Dependent Children, because God had given her a job and that service was for people who truly did not have.

My whole life my Jesus has been there. If I had been asked when I was a kid, if I thought we were poor, I would have been shocked by the question. We had a roof over our heads. We ate three meals a day, even if some days it was oatmeal or PBJ sandwiches for all three. We had each other and never knew a day without laughter.

The amount of money or stuff we have has nothing to do with provision. Our ultimate provision was taken care of at the cross. Every day that we wake up and take a breath is a bonus to the eternal life we have in Jesus.

I thank Jesus every morning for a great night’s sleep and for waking me up. It is exponential joy to fulfill the purpose He has given me and wakes me up for every day. Everything else is icing on the cake.
