help me to give up things that are not in my grasp.
remind me that these things are temporary, and that they won't be in my grasp forever.
continue to encourage me to think of things that i can treasure. things of yours that can forever be in my grasp.
carry me along the way to teach me to be thankful for the people and things that are in my grasp.
help me to give up temporary things, encouraging me along the way, with treasures from your word, and helping me to be thankful for these....that are in my grasp.
"therefore i tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. are you not much more valuable than they?"
"that is why, for christ's sake, i delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. for when i am weak, then i am strong."
2 corinthians 12:10
