Do you ever feel the “wavering” as your mind gets caught up in “wondering“…
Do you ever grow weary in the “pressing through”?
“God, I’m pressing through…
and I’m leaning on Your truth…
and I’m waiting upon You…
I’m wondering if this “thing”—this thing that You’ve led me to…is really worth it.
I’m wondering if any of it is doing any good.
And I’m wondering… if it’s even “You“…
…but then the Lord has a way
of giving us the “glimpse” or the “nudge” that we need,
just in the nick of time.
And He has this way...
of “breathing life”…
—the heavenly “wind” that we so desperately need
“beneath our wings”
that we may continue
as He carries us through
and into the new
that He’s always leading us into.
And in our own strength, there is nothing you or I can do…
“My God, My God… I’m trusting in YOU
to do the things that I, alone, cannot do
but I’m trusting You
to continue carrying me through
and though I may not see it yet, I know
that You are leading me into something good—something new.”
Thank You, Father. 💝
Psalm 23 TPT
The Good Shepherd
David’s poetic praise to God
23 Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd.
I always have more than enough.
2 He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss.
3 That’s where he restores and revives my life.
He opens before me the right path
and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness
so that I can bring honor to his name.
4 Even when your path takes me through
the valley of deepest darkness,
fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
Your authority is my strength and my peace.
The comfort of your love takes away my fear.
I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.
5 You become my delicious feast
even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit;
you give me all I can drink of you until my cup overflows.
6 So why would I fear the future?
Only goodness and tender love pursue me all the days of my life.
Then afterward, when my life is through,
I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!
