7.29.2021 – Wondering that leads to Wavering…

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…

but

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…

…it’s only,

“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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
