Chapter 4, Page 25, Book 17



With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Eleanor Roosevelt

I Lack Nothing

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack

Remember there is nothing we lack.  God provides all that we need.
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough

Oprah Winfrey

So many of us focus on what we do not have, and overlook or even ignore what we do have.  Even if it’s not the nicest, or best, or most modern or recent. It’s what we have, and it’s better than nothing. We need to remember this, and remind ourselves how lucky we are to have what we have, as there are plenty of others with even less.

One day at a time is how we all live. Today, nothing is lacking. There are things that would be nice, but I’m doing OK. And the world is mine, for I have all I need. 


When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love—then make that day count!

We truly lack nothing and we are so blessed. We just need to remember that and live our lives to the fullest.

this is an eye opener. "So many of us focus on what we do not have, and overlook or even ignore what we do have. We need to remind ourselves how lucky we are to have what we have." so true. I need a good look in the mirror over this one.

Sweet and very true!

I love how centered I become at the end of the day, absorbing these words.

Mr. Maraboli's advice is something I've recently begun to begun to embrace ... and don't it feel good! :)
