Are You Feeling Weary Today?

Do you ever feel tired, weak, and weary of the struggles of life? Are you feeling insignificant and alone and wondering who cares and who will help you through another day?

We can soar like eagles when we put our hope in the Lord.

The truth is you are chosen, loved, and so very special to God. He is the amazing creator of everyone and everything on earth. There is no one like our God. He is awesome, powerful and huge, yet He loves you and me, and He wants to give us the strength we need for whatever we are facing today. How do I know this? Because here’s what I read this morning:

“Do you know know? Have you not heard? the LORD is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40: 28- 31.

How about you? Do you need His strength today? How can I pray for you?

    I am weak, weary and heavy at heart. Its been a year since I broke up with Marcus. And I have just started to write to him after one year to come back but still not. He is a good man I don’t want to loose him. Please pray for me.

    • Carrie Turansky

      Hi Grace, I’m sorry to hear you are going through such a difficult time. I would be happy to pray for you. I’m asking God to give you comfort, wisdom, and grace. I hope you will get in touch with the pastor or women’s ministry leader at your local church. It’s important to have support and encouragement at times like this. God wants to guide you and give you strength. Call out to Him and ask Him what He wants you to do. Spend time reading the Psalms. There is a lot of comfort there, and He can speak to you through His word. Take care, Carrie

    The Lord is my Shepherd..he keeps me from despair.
    The Lor is my Shepherd..he takes away my fears.
    Oh yes the Lord, is my one can do me wrong.
    Yes, the Lord, is myyyy Shepherd, in Him my cup is full…
    Oh yesss, the Lord…is my Savior… He is my saving grace…

    I made this short poem for the Lord and put my own tune and music to it. Try putting your own melodies. Sing it for the Lord. His miracles work every time you need Him. Believe.
