“But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.”
Thank you for the “state I am” in.
Teach me contentment.
Strengthen me to do this through You.
Give opportunity to those that will “communicate with my affliction”,
That I may rejoice in Thee greatly.
In Jesus’ name,
