Verse of the day--Lamentations 3:24
Along with Bible verses, I am publishing some pictures of things that God is making grow in my yard! Every spring and summer, when things start to grow, the grace of God amazes me all over again. I am about the worst gardener in the world, and yet God brings me things like this columbine, right in my very own yard.
I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him."
The Lord is my portion. The LORD is my portion.
I think this means when everything is divided up in the end, and the final reckoning is passed out, and we all get what we have coming... I get THE LORD.
This is a most wonderful and encouraging thought. The treasure that surpasses all treasures is mine. Jesus is mine. MINE!
Have you ever sat at dinner with your family and passed around, say, a lovely casserole of macaroni and cheese, and there was one particularly beautiful, mouthwatering corner with perfectly golden browned cheese on the top, and you hoped and hoped for that portion? Or have you hoped for the middle piece of cake? The biggest strawberry? The pinkest, juiciest steak?
At a potluck dinner, you never know what your portion is going to be. But when you belong to Jesus, He is your portion.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
(OK, that was 2 for the price of 1--what a bargain!)
