How has your month been? Along with our regular church activities and school and work responsibilities, our family has been very busy with baseball and t-ball. We have also had house guests (we loved having you!) and driven long distances to do "specialty shopping" (small towns are great, but they don't have everything). I recently had some health issues that scared both Brian and myself. I am better, and I am grateful for all of the prayers! I have been trying to keep up with family and friends, mostly on social media. My friends have been dealing with deaths in their families (young and old), legal issues, illnesses and injuries of their own. So many have asked for prayers and good thoughts. I offer my prayers because I know who is the Great Healer and Comforter. I ask for His will to be done.
The following passages from the Book of Isaiah really helps me when I am feeling exhausted, both mentally and physically. It is encouraging that I do not have to rely on myself, my own strength. My body will fail, but God will not.
28 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.
29 He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 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.
