The things we long for

We might sometimes look at what we have on our plate and wish for something else, or simply feel we lack what we need to cope with it. So many verses in the Bible speak of God being with us and providing for us when we feel weak and lacking.

When my plate feels empty,
And I long for it to be filled with good things,
Grant me wisdom in what I ask for,
And grace to receive what I am given.

The gifts of your grace
Might not provide me with the wealth and comfort of this world,
But help me to look at the giver
And trust that what you grant is sufficient.
