Let's Start Off On The Right Foot

Lately I have noticed a frustration, an uneasiness in my spirit.  I feel edgy, moody, and restless.  My days seem to be filled with tears and anger.

Suddenly I realize why...I stopped asking God to be my portion.

Yes, I still read the Word and pray each day.  But somewhere along the line I stopped asking God to be for me what I need to be.

We struggle with school, God help me be the teacher I need to be.

I am tired, worn out, God be my energy and strength.

A friend needs me, God help me to be the friend to her that You are to me.

God be my portion.  Whatever I need to be today, help me to be that through You.

Where do you struggle friend?  Stop and ask God to be your portion.  Begin each day asking God to be for you what you need to be.  Let Him be your portion.

My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart
    and my portion forever.
Psalm 73:26

  1. A beautiful prayer, Jennifer. I, too, am feeling anxious and edgy lately - I think that's the prayer for me, too, that God be my portion.

  2. He needs to be my portion today. What a great reminder, Jenifer. Thank you.

  3. HI Jenifer, Love to read your sweet blessings. Blessings is one of my favorite words and it is how I sign my emails. We ARE so blessed, aren't we? God is definitely my portion. Blessings, Amy

  4. Oh yes. My days go awry and nothing seems to go right--because I haven't been connected to Christ, He hasn't been my portion. Thanks for sharing this! And thanks for visiting my blog today:) So kind! www.toshowthemjesus.com
