Thank you Lord for my God-sources. Thank you God for those persons you have placed me with — some from birth, from childhood, and even from the most recent years of my life. Thank you for the precious sisters, cousins, and ladies that I pray and even fast with weekly or multiple times a month. They are God’s hands and feet in my life and they strengthen me to be God’s hands in feet in the lives of others. They are the iron that sharpens me, the prayers that re-align me, and the spirits that continually re-energize and re-focus me on all things “God”. Without these priceless God sources, my resources would be meaningless.
This morning, the day of my bi-weekly fast with my dear siblings, I began to be thankful not just for my resources, but for my “God-sources”. If a resource is defined as a stock or supply of money, materials, staff, and other assets that can be drawn on by a person or organization in order to function effectively, then I defined a God-source as a supply of God, his spirit, and his goodness that I need to function effectively.
