Abundant Want

So often I have felt so burdened
to have so much need.
I struggle to discern,
is this a test to contend or plead?
I do not want to insult God,
nor profane His name to any.
I know there are commands to ask
and commands to know I have plenty.
Yet 2 Corinthians 8:14
says my want is to be a supply
from those He’s blessed abundantly,
to show that all comes from on high.
And likewise my abundance
is to supply someone else’s want,
so that all those who witness
know it all comes from One.
May I seek to be content
and fulfill Your perfect plan.
I want to be a blessing,
even when I don’t understand.
