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!
