Why do you say, O Jacob,
and speak, O Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord,
and my right is disregarded by my God”?
Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
They shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
Some days I feel very hidden and weak.
Does GOD care? Does He notice?
I wonder if anything I do or have done is worthwhile.
Maybe I should just throw in the towel.
Maybe I should just give up and stop fighting.
Reading a passage like this encourages my heart after being inundated with more political promises,
word twisting and even half truths and apparent lies. stop
Maybe it isn’t worth the hard work of getting up each day, working away in my hidden places..
fighting the negative words in my head.
Enduring for the next 100 days as we get ready to vote will not be easy. Hearing words twisted…by both sides, is hard on the heart and soul. I want to be fair to both sides and give them a hearing, but I’m going to have to lower the dose of this noise.
Filling my mind with truth that sustains
I need to take more time to think of the everlasting GOD, my Creator.
He is the One who gives power to those who are weary and faint.
Don’t you love it?
During a season when we feel weary…and may face more weariness ahead, our everlasting GOD, our Creator will be present to strengthen us, not just barely, but in the way that He will give us the strength to fly like eagles over our weakness and weariness.
This is true during a season of weariness or over a lifetime.
What wonderful hope!
A great reminder. Yes the truth that sustains…I’m clinging to that too friend. I’m in the 68 spot this week.
i’ve got to get back over there tara. i wrote earlier on Friday and haven’t gotten back to read more posts:)
How appropriate for such a time as this. It is so easy to grow weary these days. I didn’t make it this week for five minute Friday. Waiting on the gel shots for my knees and can only do so much. So glad I’m getting your blog now.
welcome martell:) i’m glad you’re getting my blog now too! it’s easy enough to subscribe. hope the knees improve. blessings:)
Martha, I love your reminders that God is not hidden. But also that we are not hidden from Him. During our journey through infertility, there were seasons when I felt invisible to Him. God, being God, reminded me He not only saw me, but He was working behind the scenes in my life and in my circumstances. And, He’s not surprised by where we are with our candidates to choose from come November. No matter who wins, I’m comforted in knowing He’s ultimately in control.
Thanks for the exhortation to take more time with God and to fill my mind and heart with His word. Great post today!
if nothing else comes out of this, if we all spend more time in GOD’s Word and in prayer, it will definitely benefit our country won’t it? It will benefit our attitudes too:)
Thanks for sharing that word today!
i’m glad to share tammy:) these words are too encouraging!
This is so good! He always sees and knows and He can always be trusted!
glad you stopped by karrilee:) so good to know He can be trusted isn’t it?
I love those verses! When we feel weak and hidden it helps so much to fix our eyes on God and look to his strength. I love how you point out that he doesn’t just barely give us enough strength, but the strength to soar like eagles.
they are truly great truths aren’t they carly?
Thank you for the reminder that God is not hidden, Martha. I needed the reminder today!
that passage was helpful to me as a reminder anita:) thanks for stopping by.
Choosing to “lower the dose of this noise” sounds very wise. Blessings on your goal.
yes, i’ll definitely be cutting back. gets too discouraging hearing all the negativity. thanks for stopping by patricia:)
Love your post! I feel like you sometimes, weary, faint, what’s the use? But I know I can rest and hide in my Creator, God Himself! What a blessing! Yes, I fear the voting day too, but that too can be left in the Lord’s hands as we hide in Him, trust in Him and humble ourselves and pray. I love those verses. Thanks for sharing.
thanks for stopping by ellen:) it is so good to remind myself of these truths. blessings!
