After a long and beautiful day at the beach, with perfect sun, mild temperatures, and just a touch of a breeze, we had a great dinner and decided to get some ice cream at the infamous Ocean Isle Creamery. It’s an amazing ice cream restaurant which is very popular around here. It has more flavors of ice cream than one person could dream of! I ordered my favorite – praline in a waffle cone, the girls got birthday cake and M&M flavors, and little Michael got his one and only – chocolate.
Ever since Michael was old enough to talk and could digest normal dairy products, he has been asking for chocolate ice cream. In fact, for the past three years, his biggest thrill on his birthday is getting to eat chocolate ice cream for breakfast!
I got to thinking about this unlimited portion desire, and decided it was a great philosophy to have regarding God’s Word.
Psalm 73:26 says “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. “
What an awesome thought to think that we can always eat out of the gallon – the spiritual gallon of God’s love – and that our portion of Him will never be limited or run out!
In the great days, and the not-so-great days, Christ will always be my portion – just enough, probably even more than I deserve, but exactly what I need.
Next time you enjoy the simple pleasure of eating chocolate ice cream – or simply your favorite flavor or favorite food – strange as it may sound – think about our Jesus! He is the only unlimited portion that we need! (and without all the calories!) Smiles.
Special note: Many years ago, I survived a major trial in my life, and am in awe at how God has used that experience to mold me into who I am today, and use that painful experience to equip me to serve Him in ministry. If you need some motivation to make it through hard times, and a reminder that all things can be used to bring glory to God, consider purchasing my book “Reinventing Your Rainbow” from the Proverbs 31 shopping site. I pray that God will use it to minister directly to your heart!
