I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty (Philippians 4:12).
When I was 19 I lived alone in a little cabin in the mountains. I had just started a new job and didn’t know that paychecks often came a few weeks behind the actual work dates.
At one point I was living off generic ramen noodles with the occasional egg tossed in. In the last day or two before payday, the eggs were long gone and the ramen ran out and I engaged in what I called a financial fast–code for no money with which to eat. I sat at an empty table and read my Bible during meal times, going for the whole spiritual food is more valuable than physical food deal.
It ranks as one of the best times of my life.
These days I never go hungry. At least, not physically.
Happy Friday, Beloved
