It's officially September. I can barely even believe it. For us, school started yesterday, our eighth year homeschooling. Back to schedules--a good thing for this mama:) And keeping with schedules, it's time for our next verse. Remember we're working on the names of God this second half of the year, and here's a quick review:
El Shaddai - The All Sufficient One (Isaiah 46:4)
Jehovah Nissi - The Lord My Banner (Proverbs 21:31)
Jehovah Shalom - The Lord is Peace (Psalm 34:14)
El Roi - The God Who Sees Me (2 Chronicles 16:9)
Jehovah Jireh - Our God Provides (Philippians 4:19)
Immanuel - God With Us (Matthew 28:20)
Verse 18 I'm making a last minute switch. I'd had a name and picture placed here, but sometimes our best laid plans aren't God's:) So I'm going with His nudging and changing my verse and name without a picture even ready yet.
This isn't even a typical name, but the reason I'm going through those names is so we can claim the attributes of God. The one He keeps bringing to mind in the past 24 hours is: Our Portion, along with this verse:
"I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." Lamentations 3:24
Someone besides just me needs to hear that today.
Come on back next Wednesday, and we'll talk more about it. I'll even have the picture all ready for you to pin. Praying you have a wonderful Wednesday today and God shows up in a big way. He IS your portion today, more than enough for anything you're going through. AMEN!
