I made some space and listened.


This morning as I set on the patio, with my Bible, journal, prayer book. I did the few moments of silence, centering my groggy mind on the Lord, sipping some strong black coffee, and immediately sensed His special presence.  I encountered a “thin place”. A place where it seems my connection with the Lord became closer.  I enjoyed this time.  I sat a few minutes, sipping, thinking, and soaking in God’s love for me.  I did not hear this, but know in my spirit-nate that this is what the Holy Spirit was saying to me.  It was refreshing, and there was fullness of joy.

I read a few chapters in Romans, my psalms, prayed. People were on my mind and heart.  I read the Scriptures from my Prayer/devotional book. And these words jumped up from my heart.

“The LORD is my portion.”  Psalms 119.57

I thought and meditated on this.  I realized He is all I need.  I don’t need to get a million things done today. I don’t need to worry who will be affected if I don’t. I don’t need to purchase this or that.  The Lord is my portion. I am fulfilled and content.  I keep saying this in my mind. I said it out loud to myself and the Lord.  As I said it, the truth of it, ignited faith in my spirit.  Say it a few times out loud.

“The LORD is my portion.”  Psalms 119.57

Jesus is enough.

I’m so glad I made some room to listen this morning. portion

  1. It is so true. The Lord is our portion. What he provides is more than enough. But recognizing this, I feel, is the battle for a lot of us. It’s like out of sight out of mind. When you don’t put the Lord in your view then you won’t realize that this is all you need. Sharing this “view” with people how haven’t seen it is our duty. Awesome little coffee talk. Pastor Nate you are the man.
