daily bread

I read this verse this morning in my devotional in Proverbs 30 and I just really desire this for my life.

7″Two things I ask of you, O LORD;
       do not refuse me before I die:

 8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
       give me neither poverty nor riches,
       but give me only my daily bread.

I really desire for verse 8 in my life.  Keep lies and falsities FAR from me.  No one wants people that are going to lie to them, do they?  I surely don’t!  I expect good from people as they should expect the same in return from me.  False and fake people is something else I don’t like nor want in my life.  I have lived too long to see many people come and go in my life that are like this—be banished!

Just as important is the next line.  For me this is so true.  Lord, I don’t want to be too rich and I don’t want to have to look and be worried about my next meal either.  But please Father, give me my daily bread.  For me, I am rich compared to most of the world, but in my view, I’m middle-class, blessed with a great job at a great company.   I don’t desire to be grossly wealthy, because I might feel like I can do it all on my own or get prideful.  Too many things bad could happen, I feel, if I was very wealthy.  So, Lord, I am very content and happy with what you give me and what I have today, Thank YOU LORD!!

Have a Blessed Day!

  1. I completely agree with you in the sense of having people around you that lie to you.. I’ve been around that before and I sometimes simply walk away from that situation.. Which comes to why I was so candid with you in the first place, about my divorce and a few other experiencing in my life. I like to be back in communication with you, and would like or need a real good friend to share things with and get opinions from .
    I am a workaholic.. that is for sure… I am 24 for 7 .. on the go… and I love my job, and feel very blessed to have this job opportunity, working a with an gas and oil company. I have the opportunity to travel and do what I like to do. And I also agree with you in the sense about being rich, if you have all that money you wouldn’t know what to do with it … and much less yourself. I am very happy the way that I am right now. Middle-class, single mother.. and raising who is t about to be a 4 year old. Yeah!! Amen
