Choosing Faith Each Day

Day 22: God Makes Us Strong

Yesterday, I went see my mom in the hospital. It took 3 hours to get there again. By the time we got there, I was not cheery and enthusiastic, like I should have been.

I am accepting my mom’s diagnosis. She is not the same, but she still remembers all of us.

Do you ever feel like everything happens at once? I feel like that now. There are several situations in my life, that I am praying about. I am trying not to think about all my concerns. I am putting my trust in God. I am feeling tired and weary.

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
–Isaiah 40:28 (NIV)

Today, my kids read this devotional. It said that when we are weak, God is strong. It says, “When you lean on me, you are truly strong. Because My Strength never runs out, and My wisdom never fails.”*

Prayer

Dear God,

I trust in you I am leaning on you. Praying that you will carry me through this season of life and make me strong, where I am weak. Praying that your take away my weariness and energize me. 

Amen
