Better one handful with tranquillity than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.
Lord, I don’t know when I started believing the lie that more is better. More things consumes my time. More activities take me away from those closest to me—and away from time with you. More desires fill me with longing instead of thankfulness, yet even when I receive what I think I want, it leaves me with emptiness inside. Today, Lord, I choose to be thankful with my one handful. It is enough. Fill my heart with gratitude and remind me of the futility of chasing after the wind.
