This Beautiful Inheritance: What's in a Name?

What's in a Name?

I have been meaning for a while to explain the new name of this blog.

This Beautiful Inheritance

It's based on one of my all-time favorite scriptures, Psalm. 16:5-6.

I first fell in love with these verses at a time when I wasn't very content with my life. We've all been there, right? Contentment is not a popular state of being in our society. We're not satisfied with who we are, where we are or what we've got. We tend to think the grass is greener on the other side.

But if we are Christians, redeemed and on our way to Heaven, we have EVERYTHING to be thankful for! These verses reminded me then, and do today, about the Beautiful Inheritance we have as believers.

THE LORD is our portion. There is no better portion than that!

HE HOLDS our lot. What a secure future!

The lines have fallen for me in PLEASANT places. How pleasant it is to live within His will for us!

If we believe those things, we truly do have a Beautiful inheritance. Because our inheritance is not based on our earthly circumstances. Those can seem dire, even hopeless. But with Christ, they are not. There is no greater hope than knowing that He has already won the battle for us. In the end, we are victorious. We'll be delivered from this sinful world. And we'll spend forever with Him in

This Beautiful Inheritance.
