Psalm 16:5,6 – “LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.”
It is an unusually dreary day here at my house. It is drizzling and very overcast with the forecast looking this way all day. Yet, my to do list is incredibly long as I prepare for Thanksgiving day. Time to start cooking. I love cooking.
I look out and see the dreariness but I also see the beauty. The bark of trees takes on an amazing color scheme in the rain. They dance in the wind that is moving the clouds along. I see wild turkeys making their way through my yard. Enjoying the bugs that have come out for the rain.
You know, sometimes we get dissatisfied with our circumstances. “The house is too much to clean.” “We live too far away from school.” “I can’t get cell phone coverage all the way out here.” On and on.
But this is the lot God has provided for us. This is what He has decided is best for us. This is our portion. This is where our boundary lines have fallen. And they surely are in a pleasant place.
Today, princess, I would ask that you look around and appreciate what you have. See the good in your circumstances and praise God for your lot. He knows what is best for you. So make the best of it. Enjoy where you are at right now and let tomorrow worry about itself.
