    Well done Lisa! What a thought provoking post. I love this powerful reminder of God’s provision. Since the stroke, I have learned the true meaning of being prosperous in Christ. For years I thought it was defined by my bank balance and other things but my dependence on God has made me more prosperous than ever before. I have peace as my relationship with God grows stronger each day. I may not always understand His plan but I trust Him. My apartment is smaller and my pain is difficult at times but because of Jesus’ grace I am rich in Him! Thanks for sharing this inspirational post. Have a wonderful weekend and may God bless you and yours!
