I know how to...live
I wrote this a while ago and just came across it again. As our family moves into, yet, another phase of life, I echo the following statements:
Philippians 4:12 (bold print mine)
I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.
I know how to live in a big beautiful home with bathrooms as big as some kitchens.
And I know how to turn a laundry room into make-shift kitchen/bathroom while living in a basement.
I know what it's like to have a pantry and freezer full of food.
And I know what it's like to sell my blood to get money for food.
I know how to live on an income that most people dream of.
And I know how to live on (less than) $12,000 a year for a family of 4 with no food stamps or assistance.
I know what it's like to have a beautiful master suite with a whirlpool tub and walk-in closet.
And I know what it's like to use a bed-side potty for a toilet (I'll leave out the details).
I know how to cry real tears to God and beg Him to move in our behalf.
And I know how to speak in FAITH to God and watch Him move in our behalf.
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
