Verse of the Week…

Question… If Jesus was all you had, would He be enough? I believe HE most certainly can be, and maybe that is you or someone one you know at the moment. One of my dearest, life-long friends lost everything she owned in a devastating fire. Everything she cherished…family heirlooms, years of pictures, homemade treasures, her beloved dog, absolutely everything…was all gone, destroyed by fire! She later lost her husband of 48 years and now lives miles and miles away from her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Amazingly, she is one of the MOST content people I know. Matter of fact, I don’t think I know anyone who is a happier, more joyful daughter of the Most High God than she! How does someone experience all that grief and loss and still continue? The only answer that makes any sense at all is to make the LORD Himself our portion, to choose to be content with Him and nothing else. HE can never be taken away! Nothing else in this life comes with a guarantee. People will move away (some as far as Heaven), jobs change, companies collapse, houses can burn down, cars break down, marriages fail, children grow up and have lives of their own, and the list goes on. BUT here’s the good news…. If GOD is our portion, we can be forever secure in HIM!! Change and loss will certainly take us through long periods of adjustment and grief, but we have a Comforter, a Sustainer, a Guide, a constant Companion who will carry us through…if we let Him. James 4:8 teaches us that as we draw near to God, He promises He will draw near to us and, honestly, I can’t think of a more secure place to be! 🙌🏻✝️😄❣️
