We are currently reading through Psalms. This morning we were reading Psalm 16. Here is one thing that stuck out to us:
"LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance." (v. 6-7)
We discussed what an encouragement David's trust in the Lord's faithfulness is in this Psalm. We saw David's heart of contentment in what the Lord provides. As we wait for Abigail, it is at times discouraging and heartwrenching. Our hearts long to meet her, but that meeting is withheld by government bureaucreacy. Even still, our joy is in our GOD - and our cup runneth over with His rich blessings. He has made our lot secure - He is soveriegn over all things, even governments. Reminds me of "It is Well With My Soul" - one of our favorite hymns, maybe we'll have to sing it in family worship tomorrow!
Anyone else out there having family worship? We'd love to read about it...
