“Strong, Recovering, and Eager”

April 17, 2021

Not a situation we’d volunteer for.

Yet a real life friend in the midst of it says, “Still strong and recovering well from the treatment and eager to get through this.”

Want some of that?

Start here: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Want some more of that?

Continue here: I’m glad in God, far happier than you would ever guess—happy that you’re again showing such strong concern for me. Not that you ever quit praying and thinking about me. You just had no chance to show it.

Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty.

Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.

I don’t mean that your help didn’t mean a lot to me—it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles.

Want still more? Pull up the source, Philippians 4.

And please join me in praying for my friend who is “still strong…and eager to get through this.”
