PORTION – Biblical not simply a piece. Eternal Inheritance.

A Bookmark

       Psm 119:57    You are my portion O Lord,

                                 I have said that I would keep      

                                 Your Words.

            A biblical perspective means God is the source of all happiness and blessing.  He is content with all that the Lord is and provides.   He has the best inheritance imaginable and does not seek any possession or comfort outside of God. Riches, honor, friends, fame-nothing- is as valuable as the Promises of God.    

   This week I have read two morning devotionals from two different places in the world – one a man and the other a woman – expressing the practical life affirming truth in this passage.

          The man sat on his verandah completely ALONE, gazing across the deserted plain land where only distant cattle grazed.   He grieved over the loss of his wife and missed his two children who left today for college.   He opened his Bible …a bookmark fell out.   It simply said:

                            THE Lord My PORTION.   

                 ‘I fell to my knees and prayed.  Worship replaced grief and my day again had purpose.’      

 The other story was a very different scenario.     Sarah was surrounded by people.   It was a big family gathering, children scampered everywhere.  There was mind-numbing noise and joyful appreciation each family group one for the other.  As the only single woman recently widowed, with no children she felt like an outcast, almost an alien among her own loved ones.  

         Her heart was breaking with loneliness and deep sorrow.  She felt a hand on her shoulder.   Her brother Tim’s voice whispered quietly.  Let God be God to You.   He will Comfort and lead you onwards.   Let Him be your Portion’.    

         Sarah wrote ‘I checked out the wisdom in my brother’s words from my bible and later as I  played with young nieces and nephews was able to sincerely thank HIM for His Hand of Comfort and His Presence with me on THE WAY. ‘

                        He is Our Portion for every heart that truly surrenders to Him ALONE. 

     Have a beautiful Sunday of WORSHIP and THANKSGIVING.  

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    I have tried and failed miserably at comforting people until I learned what Tim told Sarah: Let God BE God to you. Only He knows all the ins and outs of our hearts and hurts and only He has the power to help. ❤️&🙏, c.a.
