I shall not want | A random post for y’all ;)

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
Psalm 23:1

Blogging has been a bit random and unpredictable lately due to work and craziness but I wanted to take a quick break in the wee hours of the morning to ask y’all a question. What is your portion? Where/who are your hopes and expectation aimed towards? I have to say my heart rejoices when I read Psalm 23:1 and the truth it contains! Though one day{if the Lord wills, prayerfully} I very much hope to marry, yes it will be a huge blessing, but I won’t fully find contentment in marriage. One day I would love to travel to uncharted territories{okay, so Maine is considered uncharted to me ;)} but becoming a world traveler won’t satisfy me. “The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.” {Lam 3:24} In Christ alone we will find our Portion{Ps 119:57}, our Hope{Ps 62:5}, our satisfaction, and in Him alone will we have our expectations met. He “satisfies the longing soul”{Ps 107:9} He alone offers that perfect peace{Is 26:3}, He promises to meet ALL our needs{Phil 4:19}, and leave us without want{Ps 23:1}!! :) Hope in the Lord, trust in Him at all times{Ps 62:8}, seek HIM diligently{Prov 8:7}, and love Him with all your heart{Matt 22:37}. I am reminded of Proverbs 4:25 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” I want to encourage you all to keep your heart with ALL diligence set steadfast on the Lord and continue pressing toward the mark{Phil 3:14}. He is our portion! “The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.” {Ps 16:5} The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want! :)

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:14

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

    Studying Psalm 23:1 last night and this morning. It’s so amazing really, all our desires source back to God our Shepherd. It’s only Him Who we want and need so badly and when we realize that truth, we truly shall not want anything because we have it all right there in Him. Beautiful.
