Weary and Worn?

16 Comments

Weary and worn from my journey

I sat down one day to pray

And the Master who knew my heartache

Placed His hand on my head

and prayed

He prayed Father

This is your daughter

Come and heal her soul today

Pour your oil upon her heartache

And take all

her fears away

Don’t you know

how much I love you

Can’t you see I died for you

And dear child if you love me

Take my hand

And trust and obey

He gives power to those who are tired and worn out; He offers strength to the weak. Even youths will become exhausted, and young men will give up. But those who wait for the Lord will find new strength. They shall mount on wings as eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40: 29-31 NLT).

    • Susan, Thank you for stopping by today with words of encouragement. It does take trust to intentionally do those things God calls us to! I will be praying for you as you begin writing the Judges study.
      Blessings to you also…and I call you my friend!

    • Becky, God is so faithful. He gave that poem-prayer-song so many years ago and brought it back this weekend as I was preparing the post. I started out in one direction and ended up a new one. Trusting God will lift hearts who read it. Thanks for stopping by and sharing words of encouragement. God bless you today!

  6. Sweet sister, thank you for this word. It touched a vulnerable place today and I needed to hear it.

    Stepping off a cliff, and needing to find myself standing on the ROCK

    • I’m so glad God used a poem He gave me over 20 years ago during a personal crisis. I was praying He would touch at least one heart who needed to hear it for themselves. Jeanne, you are so running the life of faith so well right now, putting one foot ahead of the other and just doing it! It’s almost time to celebrate the new change that’s just up ahead and I know it’s gonna be good.During those times when you feel you have jumped off a cliff, I pray you will sense God’s presence as He catches you in His arms and holds you close to Himself…and puts you back on your feet again. You have so many CCC friends praying and rooting for you during these days. We know God has awesome plans for you and we can hardly wait to see what they are.
      You have run the race well!! WOO …how I would love to have a reunion of our CCC sisters.
