Rest for the Weary

Life can run you weary! I started the day with my new normal routine of reading, prayer, and a blog post. I settled in for work and was immediately overwhelmed with the task on my schedule. All day it seemed like I’d finish one and it would be replaced with two more. In the midst of that we had serious plumbing issues. It was nearing five and I thought, Lord I’m growing weary! I had not even taken a break for lunch, I had barely stopped to run to the bathroom. After work, I found my mind still troubled with worry over somethings that were beyond my control. I had stayed so busy I didn’t even realize I was troubled by them until I slowed down and found myself near tears. What? Where is this coming from? I sat down in quiet for the first time today and realized the real things that were troubling my heart. I could hear my Father saying, why are you weary child? “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, [that] the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? [there is] no searching of his understanding.” Isaiah 40:28 That sent me looking for comfort in His Word. “He giveth power to the faint; and to [them that have] no might he increaseth strength.” Isaiah 40:29

That “thing” I was carrying around that was troubling me was making me more weary than the growing task on my desk. Poppa, this heart of mine! Tears now rolling down my cheeks. You have the heart of You Father. I catch every tear that you cry and I give you the power and the strength that is more than enough to keep going. Are you weary? He gives power to the faint and strength to those that have no might. There is NO battle that you face alone. Rest in Your Father’s arms when you are weary until you are ready to stand again. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
