Oh hallelujah what an awesome testimony!! Really a reminder of why we are still at earth!

Carolyn, this line hit the ache in me: "I found myself thinking that certain blessings had passed me by and I was wondering how that came to be. I truly don't lack much of anything, but it's tempting at times to consider the bigger, better, shinier objects that other people have and wonder if that will ever come my way."

So often I fear the lot lines have not really fallen in pleasant places in my life. This week I had a wave of it, in fact! As I prayed for release from the cloud this thinking produces, I thought of how this life gets all askew when I think it's about me and my portion. God reminded me that life is about Him and making much of Him, and wherever the lot lines fall, that's where I get to do just that! My inheritance is with Him, secure, not based on the accumulated successes of this life.

Thanks for sharing this and reminding me to remember how God's provision is without end.
