The month of July is filled with camps and mission trips in our Youth and Children's ministries. I remember my first camp. I was in the third grade and it was my first overnight trip away from my parents. When I arrived at camp, I realized I had left my bedroll at home. An empty mattress on a bunk stared at me from our camp dorm room. Fortunately, my mother had pity on me, and brought my sleeping bag along with a box of cookies for me and the rest of the guys in my dorm. I slept better knowing my Mom was there to make sure I had what I needed. The cookies weren't so bad, either.

We often find ourselves in life lacking what we need. We arrive at points along the way - the birth of a child, the death of a parent, an unexpected illness – and find ourselves without the items necessary to move forward. It is in those times we can more fully realize the promise of God's word:

Philippians 4:19
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

As you face your inabilities, realize the God who supplies all your need.
