Today’s WordLive reading was Psalm 16. Verses 5-6 jumped out at me. Even though parts of this psalm are really familiar, I hadn’t really noticed these verses before. I love it when that happens…though it does make me wonder how carefully I read sometimes!
Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. Mum mentioned it in the morning, I went to read it and then it was in my head all day as I looked around where we live and thought about my life. God really has been good to me. So much natural beauty around, so much good food to eat, so many great people in my life, power to work, leisure to rest. Creativity. Love. An unshakeable hope for the future.
Surely I have a delightful inheritance.
