Lamentations 3:24 "The Lord is my portion," says my soul. "Therefore I will have hope in Him."
Somehow this took on a new meaning for me -
- Anytime I feel like someone else got encouraged and I didn't - will I listen for God's encouragement? Is He my portion?
- When I feel like I'm missing a nice vacation or sabbatical - is God's rest enough for me? Is He my portion?
- When I see others promoted or get a fortunate break - will I trust in God's provision? Is He my portion?
- When I feel like I'm lacking in motivation and purposeful work - will I believe that God made me for His pleasure? Is He my portion?
