Needs

What are your needs?

Needs

Most of the time; our needs and our wants are two separate items. There are times that our needs and wants are the same; but for the most part they generally are not.

We have desires for things that enhance our lives; but they are not essentials to survive in our lives. Our minds seemingly convince us that we have to have them to live.

We desire a new TV, a swimming pool, a fishing rod, an outdoor kitchen, and so on; but all those things are not the items for our existance.

The realistic needs are; shelter, food, water, clothes, some sort of transportation to get around, a job; to bring in money to pay for it all and survive. But all of these needs can be basic, minimal, and far from luxurious. Just enough to get by on.

Then there are mental needs; such as friendships, companionships, spiritual, support, and love. These are the needs that keep up the sanity, help avoid depression, and bring happiness and comfort.

There are so many needs and desires that we want in our life. The most important part; is to understand what is a need and what is a desire.

Having faith and trusting that all your needs will be met; is a blessing from above.

2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
