|LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. -Psalm 16:5|
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” -Lamentations 3:24

with so much more in between, but then she ended with these words:
"REFRESH YOURSELF in the Peace of My Presence. This Peace can be your portion at all times and in all circumstances ... "
Thus, it became the FOCUS for my gratitude as I ASKED God to reveal Himself to me as My Portion. Then as I tried to be STILL and hear Him SPEAK as I SOAKED, He began to pour out His Spirit showing me that "God is My Portion" and what this means to me, in my life now ... I have linked to some references below (frankly some, a little too heavy at times for my meager brain but provides good substance and meat when I can focus, however the 1st one turned on a light for me - ah - and the 3rd one struck a chord in me). My favorite: another WordPress blogger."... In Me you may have confident Peace."
"... Oh to sell all that we have, to relinquish all that hinders and obscures His purposes in us, to release ourselves completely like a little child falling into his father's arms behind him. ..."Followed by the part that hits "home" and wonderful questions to really consider and reflect on:

Is He your Infinite Supply or do you seek something elsewhere - in religion, or community perhaps, in the warm and familiar embrace of loved ones? Would you be willing - as the prophet Jeremiah - to be hated by the entire world - such that you would enter into the Love and Blessing of the Eternal God?..."

Yes, Heavenly Father, Abba, this is my prayer too as You are my Portion, open the gates of heaven as I stand ready and in agreement with LW's prayer. I cannot Thank You enough as You help me to release and let go to know You and experience You as My Portion. Amen!
