Words from Isaiah 40


vs 12  Who else has held the oceans in His hands?  Who measured off the heavens with His fingers?  Who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?…

vs 28 and 29  Hear This!  Understand This!  The Lord God is EVERLASTING, He created the whole earth!  He never grows weak or weary and no one can measure the depths of His understanding! …

vs 31 Those who TRUST in the Lord will find strength, they will soar high on wings like an eagle.  They will run and not grow weary.  They will walk and not faint.

SO… when the times come, times we all have, when I feel that God does not care, or understand, that He just doesn’t want to give me what I think I deserve, and such thoughts as these only makes me weary, and faint and ashamed of myself because of my lack of trust… THEN I just need to go back to vs 12, 28,29 and several verses in between and I am reminded that it is not about me or my circumstances.  My only hope is to take my eyes off myself and my struggles and try to grasp the truth of God’s immeasurable wisdom and love for me, for us, and it is there that I begin to move back into the position of trust.

May you begin or continue to grasp the greatness of God so that you can also begin or continue to walk in trust!  We are all at our own spot in the road!

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 40+ years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, my two doggies. I am surrounded by a wonderful family and friends who bless my life, and I believe in the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us.
