day 24: brave in my exhaustion

Here is another post from over the summer. 

I feel like I have hit a wall - as I write this it is the middle of summer break. My kids are all home from school my husband is working overtime doing heating and air. I am overwhelmed and feeling exhausted and angry. 

But God has been calling me to find streams in the desert. He is inviting me to worship right where I am, to take my eyes off of myself and my circumstances and lift my eyes to heaven. He is calling me to remember that He loves me, He is for me and not against me, He has compassion for me, He remembers my weakness (Ps 103:13-14) and He is my strength, my joy, my comfort. Even though it feels like right now all I am doing today is circling the wall, I believe that when the time is right He can cause these walls to fall. 

“"For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for the Lord, an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off."”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:12-13‬ ‭ESV‬‬
