Sunday's Sentiments

Now, if you enjoy God as your portion, if your soul can say with the Church in Lamentations 3:24, "The Lord is my portion, saith my soul,", why should you not be satisfied and contented like God?

God is contented, He is in eternal contentment in Himself; now if you have that God as your portion, why should you not be contented with Him alone? Since God is contented with Himself alone, if you have Him, you may be contented with Him alone. . . .

. . . . . and it may be, that is the reason why your outward comforts are taken from you, that God may be all in all to you.
~ The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, Jeremiah Burroughs
