A Sunday Morning Scripture

Psalm 73:24-26      New King James Version (NKJV)

24 You will guide me with Your counsel,
And afterward receive me to glory.

25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.

26 My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

This has been one my anchor scriptures for many years. It comforts those like me who have to be intentional about not worrying, especially about making the right choices in life. When we feel alone or overwhelmed by this world, God is our guide, our companion, and our strength when we are weak.

He is also our portion. Merriam Webster defines portion as

          1:  an individual’s part or share of something: as

             a :  a share received by gift or inheritance
             b :  dowry
             c :  enough food especially of one kind to serve one person at one meal

 God Himself is my inheritance; He is my sustenance; He is enough. (And, come to think of it, He was what I brought into my marriage as well. Ha!)

Do you have an anchor scripture? I’d love for you to share it with me!
