I have what I need 

Today is a good day to remember this affirming word. “I already have what I need.” It’s not outside of me. It’s not with someone else. What I need is not lying around waiting to be picked up. The thing I need – that intangible wisp of heaven streaming through the veins – is in my heart.

I already have what I need and so do you. We’ve carried it around with us all our lives. Heart and soul have collaborated in a beautiful dance to woo the mind to engage in purposeful, authentic living. What does that even mean? It means deep in our spirit is the secret to who we are meant to be m, and it is something each of us much search out.

What a journey we have before us! We are invited to plumb the depths who divine purpose already written in the folds of our hearts. We have what we need, and it is more than enough. Let’s not waste anymore time guessing or looking around at what the crowd attempts to do. Instead, let is take a step toward drawing out the deepest waters on the well of our soul.

We have much to uncover, much to unearth, much to walk out. It’ll be worth it. Tonight I remind myself in an encouraging refrain, “I already have what I need.” It’s time to begin, to simply, just, begin. Here and now, let’s choose our faith over our fear and scale the mountainous depths within.


This is day 20 of my 31 Days of Affirmation. In this series I’ll affirm hope, faith, truth, and encouragement even when life is troubling. Particularly the series ponders what it means to hold on to those things that are good, right, noble, honorable, true, and lovely even when life isn’t so pretty. You can read all the series posthere. I hope you’ll be encouraged.
