Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. -Matthew 5:3
t is overwhelming to me, how deeply peaceful life becomes when you are putting all hope in the One who created it. Pain simply loses its tenacity when Christ is at your center; Its burn is still felt deep from within, but Christ runs deeper, holding the pain at bay.
“…God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear…he will also provide a way out so the you can endure it.” -1 Corinthians 10:13
We believers here in the Western hemisphere are rich; Our minds are entertained, our bodies are clothed in the winter and our bellies are full. As such, our “poverty” comes from within.
