My Portion

The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.  Lamentations 3:24

I have spent years seeking what would fill me.  I have spent time seeking the things of the world, things that were not good for me.  I've spent time seeking after things that were not necessarily bad, but were not what God had in store for me.  And I've spent time seeking after that "one thing" that  my heart longed for.

I am so thankful that God didn't allow me to settle for those things that were less than what He had prepared for me.  I'm so thankful that I have continued to seek after God.  He has done so much for me.  He is my portion.  With Him filling my life, consuming me, giving life and breath to me, I am in need of nothing else.  He in deed is my portion.

The past few months, God has been calling me, and pursuing me in such sweet ways.  I have longed for Him and a greater filling of what He had for me.  I have spent time in prayer and time in worship.  I have followed Him waiting for the time I was prepared for what was to come.  So lovingly and so gently, He has been filling me little by little.  He has become my portion in every way.

God has granted me time in His presence. He has restored my heart, my joy, my peace.  He has given the Holy Spirit to provide me sweet filling that none other can.  My heart is fixed on Him.  I have never been in a place like this in my life.  I desire more and more...

What is so amazing... is that He continues to have more and more to give.  He is my filling portion... and as I seek after Him, spend time with Him, cultivate my relationship with Him... He continues to be my portion.

All consuming Father, thank you for always being the Portion I need.  Thank you for the life you are breathing into me.  Thank you for the newness of every moment spent with You.  May I seek after you, and find you, yet still strive to find even more... You are my everything.
