I invite you into my personal conversation with my LORD and His Living and Active Word—from Isaiah 40:28-29—even as my heart is breaking for someone I love very much.
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
My LORD, I do know. And, yes, my LORD, I have heard. And I believe You, my LORD, even now when my heart is breaking.
The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
Thank You, my LORD, that You are the eternal, everlasting God. Thank You that You are the Creator of the ends of the earth. Thank You that You are the Sovereign God who rules for all eternity…even when circumstances and people are so unruly. Even when I am so heavy hearted. LORD, You are still God. And You are good.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
Thank You, my LORD, that You do not grow tired or weary. Because I am so tired. I am so weary. My eyes are heavy from crying and my heart is so very sad. LORD, thank You that Your understanding, Your wisdom, Your knowledge is unfathomable. Your mind—Your understanding—is so beyond mine. Thank You for that. You are omniscient, LORD. There is nothing You do not know. There is nothing You do not understand. You alone have the perfect knowledge and eternal perspective that I do not have…that I will never have on this side of Heaven. Thank You, LORD. I trust You in my tiredness…in my weariness…and in my seriously limited understanding.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
I don’t feel strong or powerful right now, LORD. Not at all, LORD. But I do know…and I have heard…and I have experienced…Your strength and Your power. And I know You are faithful and true to Your Word. I know that Your strength and Your power are here with me and within me through Your Spirit. For now, my LORD, I will just rest. Rest my breaking heart, rest my weary soul and trust You. I will curl up in Your love and press into Your faithfulness. I will trust that You have all that I need…and all that the one for whom my heart is breaking needs too!
Thank You, LORD.
In love, peace and purposeful passion, Sylane
