Lamentations 3:24 – “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I have hope in Him.”
It is easy to take on someone else’s junk and make it your own portion. I am learning not to take someone else’s junk and make it my own. For the Lord says it is not your portion to carry. I often feel like I have the whole world on my shoulders wanting to make everything and everyone better. But I am beginning to realise that this is not my duty. I can only do so much before I become weary.
God wants us to cling onto the Lord and seek Him for guidance. He wants us to draw near to Him and place our trust in Him. Without this trust, we would not hope like we hope now. It is so important to hope now, especially during the current climax of what is happening in the world. We are all in the same boat and yet we are in a different boat. We are all isolating from this invisible disease yet it is real. Some of my family contracted the disease. My mom being a frontline worker was safe until she became exhausted. When you become exhausted it becomes easier to contract the disease. It is like you have to be alert all the time. I know that God is faithful and can see us through. He will see us through anything. He always has and always will. His will be done, not my will.
God asks us not to worry for worry does not add an extra hour to our day. Why worry? We cannot control what will happen. It will not prolong an extra hour to our day. Instead it will just Learn to place your trust in Father God. Father God longs to hear you speak to Him. He asks us to be honest with our emotions. It’s ok to be honest with our emotions to Him. The Lord can handle them. In some ways he can handle our emotions better than we can. It is ok to express your anger, frustration, annoyance, hurts to Him. He will then minister to you and hold you in His arms and comfort you. Thereafter you start to feel peace within your soul. Today’s worries are not your portion. Give it to God. Rest in Him and He will give you rest for your soul.
