My Portion and My Cup

O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup; you yourself who secure my portion.”

Psalm 16:5

    Sometimes I allow myself to slip into fearful anxiety over money and finances. I begin to worry that I will not have enough money or resources to provide for myself now that I am retired. It is then I bring all of this worry and anxiety to God and surrender to Him.

   I also look back and remember how God provided for all my needs. This remembering helps me to trust in Jesus today to take care of me and my family's needs.

    When my mind is still, the Holy Spirit gently reminds me that God is my Provider. He knows what I need and He will not abandon me or leave me. He is in the middle of all my financial affairs. Jesus gently whispers: “Trust in me. Trust in my alone. I am your portion and your cup. I have secured your portion.”

   I repeat over and over again, “O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup; you yourself who secure my portion.” Peace fills my heart and my mind. Jesus I trust in you.


 Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding and my entire will, All I have and call my own. You have given all to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Everything is yours; do with it what you will. Give me your love and your grace. That is enough for me. Amen.” St. Ignatius of Loyola prayer

Love the St. Ignatius prayer -- one of my favorites that I pray often.

I love that prayer too. Prayer it almost everyday especially at Mass.
