every good thing

"Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing."
Psalm 34:9-10

What does it mean that I, a God-seeker by grace, shall not lack any good thing?
It does not merely mean that once I reach heaven I will be given every good thing, 
though I do believe this is true.
It does not mean that I will accumulate a large collection of good things 
spaced out over the span of my life, with gaps of want and need in-between.
I take this to mean that the Author of my story and the Designer of my heart 
knows what is good for me and what I am ready for 
and gives it to me in the right quantity and at the right time.  

Today I have every good thing.  

Some of the things I wish for today may be good for another day 
but they can not be good for right now or I would already have them.

And, some things I think are not good actually are.  
They're being worked together for good by the One who invented good.

Sometimes I am melodramatic... Bear with me. My favorite thing is finding hope in hard places. If you enjoyed something (or not) I would love to hear from you! You can make me very happy by leaving a comment :)
