1.29.19 – Rejoicing in my Life Lessons

I’ll be honest. In the last couple of weeks it seems that no matter how much I sleep, the extreme tiredness doesn’t go away.

It’s a constant worn and weariness…and I’m starting to see the physical effects of it.

But the Word encourages that I am not to grow weary. I know the Word is solid truth.

“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” – Galatians 6:9

I know that I’ve been trying to take on a great deal in my own strength.

Funny how that seems to happen when I don’t realize it. It happens in my impatience.

I am right smack in the middle of lessons in endurance, trust, patience, rest, and letting go…

You know those level things with the bubble that floats in the middle when it’s balanced and well — level?

I feel like the bubble is bouncing back and forth in my life, struggling to keep balanced.

This is the verse that came to mind for today, and comes to mind quite often as a reminder…

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31

To “wait” is to hope, to trust… to look up, expecting His help to come.

I will rejoice in these lessons because I know that good will come of them.

“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” – Philippians 4:4

It must be pretty important if the Word says to rejoice twice in one sentence.
